Cryonics leader deanimates:
This guy seems incredibly average to me in life achievements. In a world filled with brilliant egoists, who go to very extreme measure, very deviant from median behavior efforts for extra days of life, it is one of the biggest social mysteries to me why they don't attempt cryonic preservation, yet some relative shmucks like this guy do. Forget his weapons of mass destructions -where was Saddam Hussein's bunkered cryonic preservation chamber? Or the cryonics plans for any of the self-made billionaire on this slideshow?
Where are the cryonics facilities convenient to London? New York City? Tokyo? etc. Perhaps we're early in a shift. But it's weird to me that we're this early into it and that the rapaciously persistence maximizing in all other endeavors project an image of such disintrest in cryonics. I picture cult-masterminds bending the will of hundreds to guard their cryonically deanimated body -not to drink poisoned koolaid or to offer them teens for sex. I picture third world dictators creating modern day pyramid like fortifications to guard their cryonically deanimated bodies, not having themselves cremated after death. But middle class shmoe hobbyists are taking these steps to hold onto hope for future life? I am still awaiting plausible explanations for this counterintuitive state of reality, or, alternatively, confirmatory evidence that the most driven, successful persistence maximizers are lying to us about what they're doing regarding maximizing their persistence odds.
