A note adding to my earlier post today concerning possible dates of revival:

Tipler (The Physics of Immortality, Doubleday, 1994), says (p. 226) that even
though the Omega Point may be billions of years in the future, nevertheless he
(and Moravec) think computing power might be sufficient to emulate the
essential personality of every human who ever existed (or even might have
existed) in as little as some thousands of years!

Needless to reiterate--don't count on it. Freeze, please.
