After some days off line, I find that sad information. First, all my 
condoleances to Robert Ettinger and Mae's familly. I live 6000 mil. away and 
have never meet Robert or Mae, so at first I am not concerned. On the other 
hand, there are so few people interested in cryonics that any death in that 
small group is a loss for everyone.

We can hope this is only temporary, because cryonet messages are archived, 
may be some day Mae will see that one and many other. May be we will be then 
near to meet more directly... Any religion would promise that, the difference 
is in what we do. We know that will not happen if we do nothing, may be we 
will not complete the trip ourselve, but at least we must start with the 
first steps. Present day cryonics is the very first step, now I think we must 
start to work on "how to get back"... Simpler said that done, I know.

Reversible cryopreservation is a solution for future users but what about 
current cryopreserved patients? Nanotech, sorry to said that, seems more as a 
religious faith than anything else. May be it will work someday, but there 
must be more "down to Earth" solutions. I hope to write more on that, but it 
is not really the good time.
