Tonight i have been watching a documentary on cryonics. The programme followed a cancer patient on her journey through the cryo proccess with a
company in the US.
What was made very clear was that as soon as the client/patient was declared clinicaly dead, time was paramount to the effectiveness of the croyonics
proceedure. When the patient was close to death, the cryonics company were informed and were on standby to whisk the body away.
Now maybe someone here knows more on this subject and therefore may be able to answer my question in a sentence. I looked at the website of the
cryonics company in question and could not see any reference to having to wait until a post mortem had been carried out. Maybe i missed that part?
From what i saw on this programme and from what i read on the cryonics sites, a lengthy wait for a post mortem would not be ideal for cryonics
proceedures to work effectively.
So my question is firstly "do you still have a post mortem when you elect to be cryonicaly frozen?". If the answer to this is yes, then i have
little need to ask the question in the title of this thread. If the answer is "no" though, that makes me wonder if someone could neatly "bump off"
a person, having previously arranged for them to be whisked away by the cryo team? "Sorry, no time to see how this guy died, we have to get them in
the fridge pronto!" kind of thing?
Just a thought.
