Subject: Confusion over Uploading

In the last CryoNet Yvan Bozzonetti ("Azt28") responds to some of us on the
"uploading" issue. Studying his responses carefully, it looks as if he is
simply trying to make the point that, in his view, reanimation through some
form of uploading is a more likely possibility or easier route than a
tissue-based reanimation. This point of view has merit and actually I tend
to agree. But the way that much of his stuff is written seems, at first
glance, instead to be saying that being uploaded is somehow a better option
for someone dying *today* than being frozen. This of course is absurd and
brings home the fact that while we can at least freeze a brain today, albeit
imperfectly, we can't yet do uploading in any meaningful sense.
