Micromorts avoided per dollar

in your opinion, which of your option offers the best micromorts avoided per dollar? - $400 for chemical preservation of the brain - $1000 for cryopreservation of the brain with no perfusion - $2000 for perfusion and cryopreservation if the more expensive options perform better in terms of micromort...

Re: Fees Lowered

Whether we ship you a brain that is already cryopreserved for storage (human or animal companion) or have the person / animal cryopreserved by OregonCryo, in both cases the price is the same -- is that correct?

Re: Fees Lowered

Now the need for CI to have a neuro option is nowhere near as salient. Although, using your 15x different figure for the PCT, presumably that means they could offer a 3.3k USD option, which would still be really great to see. As a reference point, that'd be below the average funeral cost (in Quebec)...

I could probably have Google Analytics installed for you if you wanted. This would give you more info on your viewers (OS, location, time of visit, etc.), and so help identify which traffic was legit.

Re: Tomorrow Biostasis

Object level: Tomorrow Biostasis doesn't do storage by design; they work with other providers for that part. The Europe Biostasis Foundation does have a building. They've automated a large part of the paperwork and have a partnership with a life insurance provider, so I don't think most of their spe...

At this point, I guess it's better for interested cryonicists to self-organize and rent a house near OregonCryo.

Re: Osiris and Dvir Derhy

I visited Osiris ~1.5 years ago. Dvir mentioned ze would prefer any amount of suffering to death (it's the same for me). Ze probably guessed it's the same for non-human animals (or something like that). Of course, this wasn't an actual dilemma here as there was the third option of avoiding both suff...

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.

Jordan, I'm not sure what's your point.

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?
