I am by no means an expert on this particular subject. But, I’ll give it my best shot.
I have often wondered what it would be like to become a cryogenic statistic. Having seen Mel Gibson in the film For Ever Young, I felt drawn to the possibility of being frozen for a hundred years, and returning to this planet.
How I would react to the differences from the previous century is a mystery I would very much like to solve. How valuable an attribute will technology in the form of computers be? could people from all parts of the world be linked up to a giant screen to witness me being iced up and preserved until my need to re-emerge from the realms of permanent sleep be fulfilled.
This is never going to happen to me, as I could not afford the horrendous expense of saving my body for posterity, but, some wonderful medical breakthroughs may, in time to come, be achieved, all because, someone, somewhere, had such a fantastic brain.
How can we praise our brilliant scientists enough? The answer is, we can’t. Sometime, some day, science and technology will become one intertwined piece of ingenious force, and my only fear would be that everything those who have worked through the centuries to master, will fall into the wrong hands.
Death and destruction happen all too frequently as it is, But used properly, in years to come, then we might hear of a treasured friend, or a member of her family not dying of Cancer. If I could have one wish, it would be, if there is a god, and, as we are led to believe, he is good, then please let all the collective knowledge concerning Science and Technology be used wisely.
