Of course, we could have a scenario where museums pay to revive us, and then keep us as an exhibit....

Die a free man, wake up a slave. Sounds like a winning plan.

Back to the main article:

Eliezer, Maybe I'm a lousy Bayesian, but I don't see how the "if you don't choose to buy into a cryonics package, you must not value human life" argument holds any water. That's salesman talk. Can't one demonstrate one's valuing of human life simply by using one's time carefully? A finite life well-lived is not a life wasted.

Equating the current facts of death with medieval superstition ("deaths are part of the plan") is absurd. You wouldn't speak of someone who accepted Newtonian mechanics as a simple rube who believes that "collisions are part of the plan." So why are you using your blog to hawk the biological equivalent of perpetual motion machines? Perpetual motion machines for the exclusive use of rich people in the West, I might add ($40 is even a big burden for some families here, let alone the Rwandans you're pouring your heart out over).

Anyway, some of us have to stay behind and run the fridges. Even harder than reviving the dead will be building a culture that doesn't kick the plug out and thaw your damn fool head out too soon.
