Cryonics is currently done in lov volumes and the procedures are
changing fairly quickly if I have understood it right. If all works
out well and cryonics do work as intended I assume that future people
will start reviving the youngest and best preserved bodies. As they
work backwards in the queue their skill and experience will grow and
the bodies will be in worser shape for each decade. But there will
steadily be fewer of each generation of cooling procedures until they
reach the few who are stored today. Would it then be benificial if
they have bodies treated with todays and yesterdays procedures for
testing before reviving humans? Would it make sense to preserve big
fairly human like and emotionally unanatched bodies from for example
pigs for future revivers to test their skills on?
