Hi again!

For Olaf Henny:
First of all, only a restricted number of jurisdictions even allow trusts
that last indefinitely (the kind that you'd probably want, since none of
us really have any good idea as to what we'll die of, how we'll die, and
just how long our own revival will take). Try Lichtenstein and several
other countries. To my knowledge, every US state has laws that disallow
trusts which last indefinitely (if anyone knows differently for sure,
I'd like them to reply!!!).

Given that you CAN write a trust which lasts indefinitely, it should be
easy to prevent relatives or anyone from taking it. If the trust is not
carried out because of the TRUSTEES, clearly there's not much remedy.

As for the possibility of revival in a nonbiological form (whatever that
may mean in the future, which may completely obscure the distinction),
if you are preserved then it just stands to reason that there will be
means to identify YOU. After all, how are they to revive you unless they
can know they are reviving you?

And one extra addition to my reply to Brian Delaney, I did not mention
chromium picolinate, which acts against glycation rather than oxidation.

			Best and long long life for all,

				Thomas Donaldson
