	Interesting idea.  If you can suggest an outline of this
program, I'd like to consider it.  Specifically, what types of variables
are you considering?  

	Also, tell me more about EXTROPY.  It sounds like an interesting

[ Gary, FYI: Cryonics magazine published, within the past year, two articles
  that estimated the probability of reanimation (rather than the time to
  reanimation).  These articles may help show what variables and computations
  are important as well as how much (un)certainty we have about the results.

  Also, here is the brief description of Extropy from message #286 (Cryonics
  Organization List), with the updated email address:

    Extropy, published by Tom W. Bell and Max More, is a "journal of ideas" on
    a wide variety of topics: life extension, immortalism and cryonics,
    neuroscience, nanotechnology, memetics, and much more.  Each issue has a
    large "Extropian Resources" list of Biostasis Organizations, Other Life
    Extensionists/Immortalists, Extropian Science Fiction, Space, and Misc.
      P.O. Box 77243
      Los Angeles, CA 90007-7243
