Re: Wait but Why

Thanks for writing this. Everything you wrote makes sense to me, except I think it's too harsh to say: > This might make you feel good, but it won't help you survive. The exception is if you live in Detroit, Phoenix, or maybe LA. Out of the 70 last Alcor patients, 20 died in Scottsdale or Phoenix of...

Re: Helping the cryonics cause

Thanks for the clarification. Maybe I shouldn’t take your claim literally. Maybe you say this in response to various people trying some form of outreach that is either useless or even harmful to the image and goal of cryonics, and possibly people that are not even themselves in a position to receive...

Re: Helping the cryonics cause

Jordan, I'm not sure what's your point. Is it one of those: a) That if one thinks they care about other people they are wrong about this preference and didn't introspect properly? b) That even if someone cares about other people, there's nothing they can do about it (with respect to cryonics)? (eith...

Re: 1% chance of survival

Jordan, I mostly agree with what you're saying. But I still say things like "I'm 40% confident that a cryopreservation under ideal conditions for our current technology will preserve more than 50% of my memories". I still think having a credence distribution over fraction of identity prese...

Re: Small planes

You really go out of you way to make the world a safer place. I was thinking about why you wouldn't offer remote standby. Beside the large cost, I thought about the following reasons: 1. If you send your team remotely for standby, then people in Salem are less well covered in case of emergency durin...

Re: RAAD Festival

The first year it was done, in 2016, I was pretty annoyed that they extended their early registration discount many times. I felt like they were creating a false sense of urgency. For the 2016 edition, registrations opened on November 15, 2015, and here are various limit dates I could find for the e...

Re: ASC vs. O.C. $1K aldehyde bath + molecular brain scan

Re. aldehyde bath While I've mostly only read the abstract, and don't understand everything, this seems relevant: "Based on the diffusion model, the brain is not completely saturated in formalin until after 14.8 weeks of formalin immersion and, based on the observed changes in T1, T2, and PD, f...

Re: No Bay Area Office

That you say you will focus on improving preservation quality instead of increasing coverage area made me want to share the following musing. I'm currently debating (with myself) whether I should try to improve cryonics coverage in Québec, or instead move in the city of an existing cryonics organisa...

Re: Response to Aschwin's Future Development article

Thanks for posting this.

Oregon Cryonics is the only organisation in the world currently providing Aldehyde Stabilized Cryopreservation (ASC), correct? Since when do you offer this procedure? How do you think your procedure compares with Alcor's procedure?
