To Toby Christensen:

I'm hardly Bob Ettinger, but I believe the answer is simple --- if
seen in one way. The really hard part may be to bring the individual
cells in a patient's brain (and body) back to full life. Once they
become active, they'll make whatever electrical currents are 
required on their own. Getting them to that point is the hard

Starting the repaired patient's heart, again, may well be done
with electrical impulses. Once his/her brain cells start to get
oxygen and nutrients then they will begin, once more, by themselves.
You may want to refer to many experiments done by cryonicists and
NONcryonicists in which a dog's heart is stopped at low enough
temperature that the dog looks "dead". (Hmmm!) Raising their 
temperature and starting their heart brings them back again,
with no special electrical work on their brains.

As I said, the really hard part isn't getting repaired people
to start again. The hard part is repairing them in the first place.

		Best wishes and long long life for all,
