Lately you may have been reading on the Cronet those who believe that
cryonics procedures as used today won't work.

Please remember that today's scientific knowledge is commonly tomorrow's
belly laugh.

The lesson of history tells us that scientists are notoriously wrong in
their view of what will happen in the future.  They seem to exhibit negative
psi - the ability to guess significantly BELOW chance.  I don't know why
this is true but it is true enough to win bets on.

Cryonics is just such a bet.

In other words, current " scientific certainty" about what constitutes a
"poor", "good" or "great" cyonic suspension will PROBABLY be dead wrong.
(Pun intended).  That is what history tells us.  (And remember, "Those who
ignore history are doomed to repeat it." -Winston Churchill).

No one knows what will work yet.

And someday we WILL know.

Until we DO know, it is prudent to get on the only lifeboat on the Titanic

If you are not signed up for cryonics now, please do not wait until it is
too late.

Do not be taken in by modern "experts"  who are so "certain" of of what can
and can't happen in the future.

History shows us that they are almost always wrong.

Get in the lifeboat.

It's your only real chance.

George Smith
