Workers at an Arizona cryonics facility mutilated the frozen head of baseball legend Ted Williams - even using it for a bizarre batting practice, a new tell-all book claims.
In "Frozen," Larry Johnson, a former exec at the Alcor Life Extension Foundation in Scottsdale, Ariz., graphically describes how The Splendid Splinter" was beheaded, his head frozen and repeatedly abused.
The book, out Tuesday from Vanguard Press, tells how Williams' corpse became "Alcorian A-1949" at the facility, where bodies are kept suspended in liquid nitrogen in case future generations learn how to revive them.

And they will go to great lengths ti protect this image. For example, they will postulate that people whoi have NDEs are simply having chemical processes being triggered in their brains because of hormones being released into the bloodstream. Have they ever said which hormones and been able to replicate this process? Well, no, not exactly, but that MUST be what is going on. It's a "Swamp Gas" kind of explanation.

Oh, what can possibly go wrong with brain cloning?
Person 1: NO, Shoot HIM! I'M YOU'RE HUSBAND!
Person 2: Remember all of the good times we've spent together, it was us not with him!
Person 1: Don't listen to him, he's evil! You need to trust your instincts!
Person 2: But we've experienced so much together, we had children, we married, and flew to the moon and back!

Person 1: Oh thank god, you've made the right decision.... (or did she?)

So many ethical questions.
Is that "you?"
It will have all your memories, but will it be your consciousness? Will you have a perception or knowledge of the you that once was, or will this just be a new entity with your knowledge? We can already preserve memories through memoirs and autobiographies, and photographs, and voice recordings, but programming those things into a computer does not make a clone of "you."
I don't think this is going to work.
