There is an interesting fact in Rowe's idea: He said into a cow, not the
original cow! Today, genetic clones may indeed be built from DNA taken from
hamburger if we want. So, if cryonics was that simple we would have perfect
recovery today. .. May be it is that simple, but cloning has got more money
and that is why it is a reality today.
