We need *interpreters*.  I am calling on the few women in
cryonics, even though they too are mostly scientists or logic-
professionals, they are also nurturers and intuitive as well.
Most of all I am calling on  Deathist Lurker Girl , Who is not
a cryonicist, but an interested observer, to tell us, what would
bring her closer to embracing the  joy of extended healthy
_youthful_ life ?

May I suggest:


for a series of articles written by my wife (who writes under the name of
Chrissie Loveday). These were written as she was becoming aware of cryonics
and may help provide the viewpoint that you seek.

"Deathist Lurker Girl" "Shiva" (found on sci.cryonics) and possibly "Jeff
Grimes" are (in the case of the fist two) and, possibly could be,
"characters" authored by someone else like characters in a book, in order to
debate ideas about cryonics. Even a virulently pro-cryonics person could
create people with questioning opinions in his own mind simply to explore
how other people react. Charles Platt has sometimes been mentioned as a
possibility for being their author, but it could well be someone none of us
know. And, before anyone asks, Chrissie has nothing to do with it!
