Yes i realise the reasoning behind it-all im saying is imo people are going to be in for a grievous disappointment if they expect to get the person back that they lost.That person is gone.What the reanimated flesh suit will be like,is anyone's guess.But the deceased left the fleshly conveyance,and has passed from here.Imo.

We live in some exciting times. The next 20-30 years should be groundbreaking unless the one of these destabilized
A biotech company in the US has been granted ethical permission to recruit 20 patients who have been declared clinically dead from a traumatic brain injury, to test whether parts of their central nervous system can be brought back to life.

Source for the op as one is not showing.
Fantastic news if so. Wonder how far they can really go due to severity of damage being fixed. And no, not that a trust nanobots altogether nor nanonbots causing zombies. For those who have lost loved ones due to this type of injury they know what I'm referencing.
What will happen to DNR's if they can start reviving people who are brain dead?
Examining any proposed money it would take it even for normal surgery it would probably also be out of reach for many.
Ideally, medical help, and saving a life shouldn't come with a cost, but I get called altruistic in this statement, most of the time, especially by people in the medical field.
As far as cost, I think it should be available to everyone, and no, there shouldn't be a cost, to anyone.
Not to go too far off from the OP's topic, but money has seriously ####ed up the world, and it's made many people heartless, when they should not be.
Money = time, and I ask this a lot.. "Is your time really worth $15, $25, $50 an hour, or do you realize your trading something irreplaceable, and invaluable for mere baubles.."
As far as the OP, I would be ecstatic if this could be accomplished, as well as many other "science-fiction" based ideas of immortality through medical advancement. Be it the a fore-mentioned nano-bots, or some other method.
Life is a giant puzzle of many, many things, and it will take everyone working together to solve it, and make it better. As it stands, it's all cut-throat, greed and anger, and decisive tactics. People forget, we're all in this together, and no one is getting out alive until we all come together to solve it.
Now I do wonder, what will happen when they bring someone back from being "Clinically brain-dead", will the person be like a child, or will the person have changed, perhaps be enlightened?
The possibilities are endless.
