Once more on the future of cryonics: I did NOT just say that it 
was a unique industry. I gave specific traits of cryonics which
MIGHT make the existing societies hard to replace easily. (I also
said that I did not know myself what the future would bring).

Not all industries behave the same way. An analogous industry,
which actually has some parallels with cryonics, is life insurance.
Yess, eventually life insurance companies which were founded by
those who wanted to make money did get into the field. But many
life insurance companies began as cooperatives of people who
wanted life insurance, and grew in that fashion to become very
large. The computer industry is hardly the only kind of industry
on the planet!! Nor the steel industry, nor the shipping industry...

If you want to argue against me you're welcome to do so. But simply
repeating what you said before does not constitute an argument.

		Best wishes and long long life to all,
