Scott Badger asks about the relevance to cryonics of Goedelian questions.

It's a matter of degree and perspective. 

At one extreme, likely most people would tell you that nothing is relevant to 
cryonics except prevailing opinion that it's science fiction or heresy or 
morally abhorrent. 

At the other extreme, in addition to the entertainment factor, some would say 
that anything pertaining to the big picture, 

life-the-universe-and-everything, is relevant, since we are talking about major 
mind-set. Who are you, what do 
you want, what ought you to want, and are there limitations on your 
potential? Arguably, Goedel bears on that last.

For myself, however, I have too much to do and too little time to do it, so I 
doubt that I will be spending much time on the internet, except for 
occasional updates to youniverse.net.
