The Toronto Transhumanist Association is pleased to sponsor a talk by 
cryonics expert Ben Best on the topic, "Can Cryonics Save Your Life?"

Proponents of cryonics claim that low-temperature preservation of recently 
deceased persons may allow them to benefit from a future technology that has 
cured all disease and can rejuvenate people to a condition of everlasting 

Best will discuss recent technical advances that are making cryonics 
increasingly feasible. He will also address the controversy surrounding the 
desirability of cryonics if it proves feasible and discuss existing cryonics 

Best is a Director of the Cryonics Society of Canada, a Director of the 
Cryonics Institute and President of the Institute for Neural Cryobiology.

The event will be held in downtown Toronto at the Parliament library, 269 
Gerrard Street East.
