Subject: Cryonics Wars: Peace

					February 26, 2001

Let us please have peace - lasting peace - in the Cryonics Wars. I don't 
mean by this an end to debate over the best methods to achieve our common 
goals of cryonic suspension, reanimation, and indefinite lifespan. By 
peace, I mean an end to ad hominem criticism and endless wrangling over who 
said what.

I have personally visited Cryonics Institute, Alcor, 21st Century Medicine, 
and Transtime and have spoken, sometimes briefly and sometimes at length, 
with the principals of each as well as with many other well known 
cryonicists. Although people's opinions differed widely, I was favorably 
impressed in all cases, with their knowledge, expertise, and devotion to 

I plead with all of you to put an end to your wasteful competition, to 
cooperate with each other whenever possible, and to spend your energies on 
work that appears promising to you. Adverse comment on projects favored by 
others, whose objectives may be as legitimate as your own, should be 
avoided where possible.
