I do not claim any keys to public response, but here are some major 
points about cryonics which suggest that it will not....we should not so 
blithely assume that such an achievement will cause much change 
at all in public attitudes to cryonics.

        I don't assume that reversible cryopreservation by itself
will do much to change public attitudes towards cryonics.  What it
will do, however, is change the attitudes of people like myself, who
have the resources to promote cryonics in a big way.  That, in turn, 
will lead to mainstream physicians and hospitals being involved in 
the delivery of services and many other things which will increase
business substantially.  How much it will do so, I can't predict, but 
I'm real interested in finding out.
