Subject: light "faster than light" and link with cryonics

I run SETI because I doubt that it will produce any result, but I cannot be
certain of this doubt. If others felt the same way about cryonics, then
maybe more would sign up.

Isn't there a flaw in the FTL conversation in that the wave has to get there

Assuming that this is a flaw in my understanding, how does one build this
equipment? is there a url? Radio when it was discovered soon became
ubiquitous because virtually anyone could make a radio receiver.

There was a series of arguments years ago in The Immortalist which suggested
that the first thing ET would do is to give us the secret of immortality -
this would make it very difficult for governments to recruit or even enslave
troops for domination of the universe.
