If cryogenics became a real, affordable option (i.e., if you could freeze your body until aging and illnesses were better understood), would you consider it? If so, do you fear you'd miss out on the wisdom that comes with growing old and dying?


No, I would not consider it. I think it would be odd to wake up years later. I would be clueless about the new society of life. I think I would even miss my current way of life. Furthermore, seeing how I am very adaptable to technology, I would be frustrated with the new computers of the future. Then there are the laws that will also have been implemented in the new future that would drive me insane. At least in my current state I can watch and voice my opinion on laws that are coming up. If I were frozen, I would not be able to voice anything, I would have to accept it.

Lastly, I believe that death is a part of life. Everything that begins has an end. I want to experience that end.

Reading your response reminded me of those movies where people were frozen as punishment or to preserve them somehow and they wake up far later in the future than they anticipated and face all sorts of problems. Those kinds of thing would put me off being frozen as well :s

Everybody I know now would be dead. And language changes over time (I've never tried reading Chaucer, for example, but I've heard English back in his day was almost a different language than it is now), so I probably wouldn't even be able to communicate with anyone if it had been a long time.

There are only disadvantages to this - I can't think of even one advantage!

Precisely. Look at colloquial American english as well. See how much THAT has changed with in the last 50-60 years? What we say now is indeed different than what was used then. I guess we are all on the same "thinking" level as far as being frozen in concerned.

Thanks for the comment.
