Posted:saw this today link

Was just wondering on peoples thoughts as to if they would want to be frozen and brought back to life, or when there time is up, to go and be left gone. Would you volunter to do the human part of these studies?

And how cool do you think it would be to have a zombie dog? no need to buy it food, can just let it jump the fence and eat the neighbours dog, heheeh

I'd volunteer if i was going to die anyway, but I'd probably get religious types attacking me as un-natural...


After much consideration, I find that the view is worth the asphyxiation.

I may disagree with what you have to say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.

do you think you'd come back in your own body, or some other soul would get born into your body instead?

Posted:in the article they say that they dont actually freeze the dog, but make it almost frozen. so you've got to think that the decay process would still happen. even if it is still slow, it would still happen. So i wonder how long your body would last in that situation.

Posted:i'd put my hand up for that, but i'll probably donate my body to science when i die anyway. i figure that when i'm dead, i won't need it, so i may as well let it be usedd for something helpful.

Isn't sanity a one trick pony? Rational thought is all you get but when you are crazy the sky is the limit.

I like this one. The same problem would exist if teleportation existed. How would you know that the people who came out the other end had the same soul?
On that note, maybe u get a new soul every time u go to sleep, and you've only REALLY been living in your current body for the current day, despite what your memories tell you.

Posted:i dunno if it where to work for people it might suggest that theres no such thing as a soul and that we are nothing more than machines. it would be very interesting to see the brain states at the time of death and reanimation. i would do it if the technology had been around for awhile and there was a clause where if i got brought back with brain damage they would terminate me.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourself, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous and talented? Who are you NOT to be?
