Subject: "Crossing Over", NDE's, Replies, F.M. Esfandiary

.... First of all, thanks to Scott Badger, George Smith, Ruthanna Gordon
(sp) and anyone I forgot or misspelled who responded to my post #14057
on the "Crossing Over" Sci Fi TV cable show.  I think the thread on this
is so far very thoughtful in the different points of view.
My first afterthought following my initial post was that I hope I didn't
upset any friend or relative of a cryo patient with my
suggestion to go on the show with the host who claims he can communicate
with the afterlife.  It was not my intention at all 
to be insensitive.   That being said, I think it is appropriate that
there not develop in the cryonics community anything like an onerous and
purely materialist (or anything  else) orthodoxy that would hinder the
growth that may save our lives someday.  I hope that this issue will
continue to be explored when possible in the spirit of understanding and
enlightenment I had intended...
    As for F.M. Esfandiary, I forwarded a wire service article on his
entry into cryostasis to another message board of my personal interest,
and got a couple of  responses.  I hope this triggers additional
thinking by anyone who read the news on F.M.E....     
    Best Regards!   John B. Krug
