Thanks for introducting yourself. I'm not an official welcome mat, but
I felt it could be discouraging for someone new to be met with total

Your inspirations (Ettinger etc.) and concerns are shared with other
cryonicists, and this is a good place to exchange ideas, remain
motivated, and build the movement.

Hope to hear more from you - there probably aren't many cryonicists in Aus.!

You seem to be doing everything possible at this stage - reading about
cryonics. The best way to make a decision is to stay informed, so
cryonet can also be useful.

If you opt for cryonics, you may need to convince your family of your
choice - or at least to respect your choice. Contact whichever
provider you choose by phone. The sign-up process and contractual
stuff can take some time - so be sure to let them know and hopefully
you'll be a priority.
