Subject: John Gray on cryonics as a "religious" exercise
From: MARK PLUS <>


Ironically Gray calls cryonics "cheating death," which assumes exactly
the sort of animistic thinking he talks about. We should strenuously
avoid using that phrase ourselves, because it projects the theory of
mind to where it doesn't belong, and it frames cryonics an unethical

Of course, if cryonics eventually succeeds as a means of survival,
we'll call it "medicine."
