It's an empirical observation that I've survived the last year.
It's an empirical observation that the atoms in my body are different than
they were a year ago. It's a logical conclusion that if information is not
important then there is only one thing left that could be, the human soul.
If I believed in that sort of thing I would be far more interested in religion
than Cryonics. I'm not.

Unpopular? It would be wonderful news if true! If I've died a billion times
over the past year then death is not all it was cracked up to be. If it hasn't
bothered me in the slightest way over the past year then I see no reason why

things will change, I see no reason why death will ever trouble me in the 
Unfortunately I don't think it's true.
