Essay On Cryoprotection
Cryonics is dependent upon unknown future science. Just because cryonics patients cannot be revived with current technology is not proof that they cannot be revived with future technology. As of 2010, there were over 200 people in cryonics storage all in the U.S. or Russia. Most are evenly split between Alcor (www.alcor.org) and the Cryonics Institute (www.cryonics.org). One of many questions is will revived cryonics patients be the same person. Because all memories, feelings, and sense of personhood is the result of the brain and its operations, then an accurate restoration of the brain should result in an accurate restoration of those memories, feelings, and sense of personhood.
