Hi again!

Some brief comments on questions raised on Cryonet:

1. The problem of reviving people will necessarily include the problem of 
   reviving them sufficiently inexpensively that it will be practical to 
   revive everyone revivable. 

   One fact that has developed out of lots of experience with technology is
   that any particular technology act or thing keeps getting cheaper. It is
   the acts or things on the forefront of advances, very close to discovery
   and development, that are expensive.

2. If people in the Church of Man have decided that they don't care about
   their personalities and memories, then that's their choice. I find it 
   impossible to agree with them, but that again is my personal choice. I even
   think of them as I might think of someone who is blind. But if they do 
   not choose to see, again, that is their right and their personal choice.

   I see no rational way to argue against their position. That doesn't mean
   that I must accept it, it just means that their assumptions and preferences
   differ so much from mine that we have no common ground on which to argue.

3. Did I hear John Sharman state that there was a possibility of revival?

			Best and long long life,
