Im not. Just afraid I will not finish my plans. Plus I believe that when we die that all mysteries become known. And I still want to explore on my own.

This would be great for law enforcement with vcthose that died wrongful deaths.  Imagine being able to put the finger on someone who tried to kill you once and sending them away for life...

If it works, I guess we will find out if there is life after death.

Despite the high cost of living, it remains very popular.

Reckon if it does work, I will have to put something in my living will about not reanimating me.  Once I am gone, I want it to be permanent.

There have been cases in recent years were people who were seemingly dead, like in hospital pronounced dead, that have come back to life on their own after many hours, so maybe it will be possible to revive someone after 24 hours. The issue of course is whether brain function returns to normal, or if there is too much damage from being starved of oxygen.

This begs the question do you we die after are brain or heart stops? Or do we die when are Souls leave the body? And if we truly do have Souls does are Soul reside within our body's Cells? And then once every single Brain Cell is dead do we die then?

I don't want to die. I like thinking and seeing the world change around me. Think of all the people who died over one hundred years ago. Never seeing machines, electronics, medical advances. Now imagine all the cool stuff we're going to miss when we die.

Can't do much when you're dead, not even being able to reminisce about you're life. IMO.

The thing is, this guy says in 20 years ..."maybe" they can do it. Funny enough he is also promoting a book on the subject, so sensational claims sell books!

Well what about all those bodies in cryogenic freezers? One of the first was in the 60's, 40 years ago and still no tech exists to bring them back.

But in reality, a corpse would have to be in a clinic/hospital within moments of death, in order to pump oxygen to the blood/brain etc, a bit like a life support system can keep clinically dead people seemingly alive, (in terms of breathing and heart beating etc).

So if its the case where you find say a 10 hour dead corpse, Id say that, along with the issues of rigor mortis which can set in after a few hours, and oxygen starvation to the cells and brain, plus the fact the blood settles in the lowest parts of the body and thickens and rots, and the intestinal bacteria create gasses and eat the body from the inside...that the body may be too far gone for re animating, if found some time after death.

Still - whether he is sensationalizing it for his book is one thing, but another thing is, this idea is mainly for heart attack victims. Those dying of natural old age or cancer will be staying dead for sure.

Anyone else get reminded of Stephen Kings, Pet Sematary?

You have 6 minutes without oxygen before brain death starts.  I think the only people on this list would be people they know have only been dead less than 6 minutes, like people that die in emergency rooms or during surgery and have oxygen and blood flowing and of course it keeps flowing. Maybe someone frozen.  Also the heart would have to be healthy, as in people that die from trauma or shock.  If it's someone with heart disease there's little point is resusitation. If someone can be actually classified as a corpse? I don't think so.

It's the fear of emptiness and fear of loss. If you can fathom the possibility that death may be the loss of everything that's your existence, except the physical residue, it can make your selfish side scared. Some have a stronger side there, and haven't found assurance in that they do not disappear nor solace in the disappearing itself. It's kind of a rest, gives you a break. It's ultimately the fear itself that makes you feel bad though.

I've been born again 31,8,2014 approximately 21:35 local time. A moment free of clutter in the mind, emancipating myself like an escapist, allowing myself to breathe life in a stronger, less physical level... though it does resonate to physical world. It's the oomph.
