​An image of the „good life”

Posted: 30/11/2016 in Book Excerpts

​An image of the „good life”:
David Ettinger of The Cryonics Institute says, “In the future, there are going to be tremendous medical advances that people dying today can’t take advantage of.… We like to call it the ‘ambulance to the future.’ ” This ambulance does not come cheaply—it can cost nearly $30,000 for the annual maintenance of one’s body.
Cryogenics represents the wealthy Western quest for immortality—shorn of any religious considerations—ready to wake up, be cured, and go on living the good life forever.
