Reanimation Costs?

Post by Mike.Perry » Fri Oct 05, 2012 11:46 pm

I am in favor of *not* increasing cryopreservation minimums based on an expectation of the costs of reanimation. Apparently there are some people who feel otherwise and might be in a position to influence where the minimums are set, so I am posting this. I think a reasonable case can be made that, with the sort of technology that will likely be around when reanimations are feasible (mature nanotech, AGI, etc.), the cost of reanimation will either be low or will be tallied in other ways than "cash" as we know it, one possibility being wait time. Basically I expect that a post-Singularity world will be what will reanimate cryopatients of our time and the near future, and so for many good reasons we probably won't have to worry much about reanimation costs, and in any case cannot reasonably anticipate today what these costs might be, if they will not be small.
