about uploading.

This is my reply.

No, no, no.  You misunderstand me completely!  We are NOT in opposition!

This whole issue RIGHT NOW regarding uploading and cryonics is not a choice
at all!

Right now, there is NO choice because there is nothing you or I can do to be
uploaded yet.

There is only the cryonics option now (or death).

All I am saying is that cryonics DOES exist now so don't wait around for
something else to BECOME available.  If you die before uploading comes on
line, you will have missed the boat!

Cover your options!  Hedge your bets!  Don't just wait for the Messiah!

All I'm saying is that since you can very inexpensively sign up for whole
body suspension now, don't put it off because there MAY BE other, "simpler"
or better solutions in the FUTURE.

Reserve your space on the lifeboat that exists NOW.

You can be certain that if uploading becomes available I'll be right in line
with you waiting to be scanned into the computer.

Just don't die waiting in line without the cryonics option.

Don't choose to be dead right (and buried six feet) instead of winning.

It is not cryonics "versus" uploading.  Right now it is only cryonics and
waiting for uploading (or whatever else comes along later).

Best wishes,

George Smith
