I remember some time back watching quite a bizarre television program on Cryonics including a look inside a Cryonics business including the human
I specifically remember the presenter talking about the 'Famous People' who have signed up for this including Michael Jackson!

Technicians prepare a patient for cryopreservation.
Cryonics is the low-temperature preservation of humans and animals that can no longer be sustained by contemporary medicine until resuscitation may be
possible in the future. Currently, human cryopreservation is not reversible, which means that it is not currently possible to bring people out of
cryopreservation alive. The rationale for cryonics is that people who are considered dead by the current legal or medical definitions will not
necessarily be dead by future standards—the most stringent standard being the information-theoretic definition of death; and that such people
could be brought out of cryopreservation in the future.
In the United States, cryonics can only be legally performed on humans after they have been pronounced legally dead.
The word cryonics is derived from the Greek word κρύος (kryos), meaning cold. Note that "cryonics" is often mistaken for the concept of
Cryonics is not a panacea for future immortality. Cryonics advocates point out that prognosis for cryonics patients is variable, with braindead
patients having little chance of meaningful recovery even with foreseeable cryonics technology, while patients who are vitrified immediately after
irreversible cardiac arrest is ascertained would fare the best. Most proponents of cryonics see it as a speculative medical technology, no different
in principle from the defibrillator or advanced cardiac life support.
So I say Michael Jackson will return, maybe not in our lifetime but once technology progresses to the stage where these people who are in these
programs can be reborn.
How will this affect his funeral? It will be interesting to see if there is a public funeral and whether Michael is buried or cremated - personally I
