To evaluate the state of the art in brain preservation technology. If inexpensive, high quality brain preservation can be proven to work for whole brains, the way it already works for small amounts (1mm cubed) of neural tissue, we want make it every person’s right to preserve their unique and precious personal memories and identities at death, for the possibility of reanimation by future science. Given the rate of accelerating scientific and technological change, AI-guided reanimation might even occur this century, while one's loved ones are still alive.

Aldehyde-Stabilized Cryopreservation is Cryonics for Uploaders

BPF President Kenneth Hayworth posted a new video introducing the current state of the art in Brain Preservation (Aldehyde Stabilized Cryopreservation) and sharing his vision for how it could transform our world. https://t.co/265qyzWuPx

This video gives a brief introduction to the concept of using Aldehyde-Stabilized Cryopreservation (ASC) as a last resort medical intervention for terminal p...

New options to rewarm tissue from the vitreous state

A lot of the damage in current vitrification protocols is due to rewarming. Researchers have proposed a new way we might be able to avoid it.

A manuscript by Manuchehrabadi et al. about using magnetic nanoparticles to improve rewarming of vitrified tissue samples made quite a splash when it was published earlier this month.

BPF’s 2015 Attitudes About Brain Preservation Survey

ICYMI: Our survey about attitudes towards brain preservation in 2015 found that 32% of people would be more likely to elect for brain preservation if a friend or family member signed up. What about you?

The Ethics of Chemical Brain Preservation as a Life Saving Medical Procedure

Check out BPF Fellow Michael Cerullo's article on the ethics of (chemical) brain preservation: http://t.co/unNjQX2lrU

Life ExtensionThroughout most of human history there was little serious reason to debate the ethics of life extension. To quote Hobbes, most lives were “Nasty, brutish, and short.” Yet the lack of success didn’t stop hopes for miraculous life extension and such hopes have been pursued throughout rec…

Would you want to live in a world in which "RIP" stands for “Return If Possible”? Interesting idea: http://t.co/4YuoeImGBr

RIP = “Return If Possible” is an excellent meme for Singularity, Cryonics & Longevity enthusiasts. [NB: phrase/acronym attributed to India’s former President, late Dr.A P J Abdul Kalam;- (15 October 1931 – 27 July 2015)]. Read more

Freeze it, then scan it: cryonics + mind uploading = perfect combination? • /r/Futurology

Reddit user monte847 describes why they believe that uploading a preserved mind is exactly equivalent to reviving that mind to the subjective experience of life. Where do you stand on this? https://www.reddit.com/r/Futurology/comments/3ex5hg/freeze_it_then_scan_it_cryonics_mind_uploading/ctjf5y1

Claim challenges B.C.’s ban on sale of cryonics — preserving bodies at low temperatures after death

"You can have your body buried and it provides for cremation but is there really a state interest, a valid and overriding state interest, that would justify restricting a person’s right to choose the third option, namely to have one’s body preserved by means of ultra-low temperatures?" - read more about Keegan Macintosh and the Lifespan Society of B.C.'s civil claim here: http://news.nationalpost.com/news/canada/claim-challenges-b-c-s-ban-on-sale-of-cryonics-preserving-bodies-at-low-temperatures-after-death

B.C. is the only jurisdiction in the world that prohibits the sale or offer for sale of cryonics services, the plaintiffs’s notice states

BPF fellows Michael Cerullo and Keith Wiley have written a fascinating post about personal identity. Do you agree?

Brain Preservation and Personal Identity Part I This will be the first in a series of articles discussing brain preservation, personal identity, whole brain emulation, and mind uploading. Each article will introduce and consider a single focused concept, and therefore will not represent a full prese…
