Subject: Cryonics community for non-USA people

Dave, this is Kaburagi.

I must defer to my respects to your magnificent idea of Cryonics 
Community. Let me tell you how members in Japan, including myself, 
have been glad to know you have proposed such a great plan.
I believe it is very important to establish a system to allow non-U.S. 
citizens to join Cryonics Community. The system will surely give a 
favorable effect on fund raising for putting the plan into practice.

In Japan, basically, legally dead persons must be cremated. Changing 
the Japanese legal system requires a lot of time and efforts. For this 
reason, many of us in Japan are thinking of immigrating into the U.S. 
or other countries/regions.

What is better is immigrating after retirement. But obtaining 
permanent residential right in other countries is quite difficult. If 
there is a system in which foreigners are employed for several hours 
of work a week (e.g., intellectual work using computer, garbage 
collector at a community) and can receive a small amount of payment 
with a proper working visa, cryonicists will get together from all 
over the world.

We would like to examine the possibility of establishing a legal 
system like this and propose the idea from a faraway country, Japan. 
We would like to join the great plan proposed by you.

Best regards.
