Xeven said:Saving someone is different from preserving the DEAD
I've never looked into it, but I'm curious what the aspired nano-technology would do for aging though. Things always tend to break down through use, and one day, the brain diminishes to an unuseful state as well. If there would be ways to preserve other parts of the body virtually indefinitely.. or perhaps the brain is too delicate to interfere with in such a way, even for nano-machinery.
Even though I have once expressed the thought that I wouldn't want eternal life or longer than normal life for reasons that I consider possibly evolutionary in their roots (i.e. the length of our capacity to maintain a stable mental state, etc), I must say that I'm intrigued for cryonics and other such technologies IF, and ONLY IF, there is reason to believe the brain can be preserved for at least another lifetime of use.
..but I still shudder at the thought of anything externally messing with my precious genius brain.
Well, he didn't claim his point-of-view was a legal fact, now did he?Proto said:I don't remember signing any contract that said that in order to die with pride I should just face death as if nothing though
