I'd wager that by the time we get to the 'fall' part; neither this forum nor any of the past or present posters in this thread will still be around to discuss it.
You mean, besides the ones rich enough to get cryopreservation?
Immortality = 40 Bitcoins at current exchange rates (Cryonics Institute). Cool

Bu it doesn't work.

They cannot unfreeze living cells without ripping them to shreds. I like my cells unshredded thank you very much!

this this were true than there would be a very good chance that cryogenics could work. unfortunately the cells are ripped to shreds when then are frozen not when they are unfrozen.

Rep Thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=381041
If one can not confer upon another a right which he does not himself first possess, by what means does the state derive the right to engage in behaviors from which the public is prohibited? Is there any process, procedure or ritual through which an immoral action can be legitimately transformed into a moral one with out changing the character of the action itself?

Except cryonics involves vitrification, not freezing - no cells bursting Smiley

Exactly. They don't rip the cells to shreds. They vitrify them. It's like plasticizing. You guys should read up on the newer technology for cryonics. You sound like stock market guys trying to comment on bitcoin :-)

Bitcoin's true purpose alluded-to in Satoshi's message on the Genesis Block:
"The Times 03/Jan/2009 Chancellor on brink of second bailout for banks"

If I became a wealthy elite, I plan to create community gardens and convert old empty buldings to automated vertical farms.. stuff like that.

Did they manage to put a human into cryogenic stasis and revive him again without killing the human? If so: Wow cool, I imagined many other great things being realized WAY before that (such extreme celluar rejuvenation techniques, quantum computing and cold fusion).

No, that's not what he is saying... Vitrification is still a one way trip for now, even for animals. But it does prevent ice formation entirely, so the chances are not anything as bad as being ripped to shreds. And the cryogenic state is very stable, so it is likely (given good organizational policies and/or survivalist tactics) that it would be around for hundreds of years.

To the people of the future where there are extreme regenerative techniques available, you would be considered essentially a living person if your brain is recoverable. (Full body replacement and reversible cryostasis would be everyday things for them, so there's no reason to think you are dead.) However, you don't want to rely on morality alone so you would want to save some money aside in a form they cannot touch without first reviving you.

There is definitely room for improvement in the tech, and I've been advocating within the cryonics community that there be more focus on research. But mainstream scientists don't take cryonics very seriously, so there is a smaller pool of candidates to work on the neural cryobiology aspect. Some well placed bitcoin prizes might help get people to look deeper into the unsolved problems of cryonics. I would recommend focusing on the blood brain barrier and on cryoprotectant toxicity mechanisms.

We could get to a point of perfect brain preservation within our lifetimes. If that happens, screw the rest of the body... If I had unlimited money, I would want to build a big huge storage facility (monolithic dome for energy efficiency and stability) and start cryopreserving people globally for free. 50 million people die per year, and there will be more as the population ages. With a big enough storage container, it gets really cheap/energy efficient because you only have to insulate the outer surface.

I remember rolling my eyes and thinking what a terrible world it would be where Atlas has a near-infinite supply of wealth.

Now I just wonder whether his lair is in the sky or sea.

Are you currently putting all your money into bitcoin?  If you say this, you show you believe it by your actions.  I am putting all my money into bitcoin - I see a possibility of $50-$100+ per coin this year.  Just think, once the "bankers" and hedge funds find out about this, we are going to the moon.  Once my bitcoins are $1,000+ I will be able to pay off my growing college loans and maybe get an apartment, and my first car Smiley

so, are you? Smiley

Exactly. And for those who know bitcoin tech, Ralph Merkle is an Alcor.org director and member. As in Merkle trees.
