The September issue of Cryonics magazine is a special outreach issue aimed at larger distribution to the general public. It features an interview with evolutionary biologist Michael Rose about the biology of aging, whether aging stops in humans at late-age, and the benefits of following a paleo lifestyle. Alcor CEO Max More and Chana de Wolf write about the phenomenon… Read more »

[FEATURED ARTICLE] Cryonics, September, 2013 By Max More and Chana de Wolf Far too many people are risking permanent death because they perpetually procrastinate when it comes to making arrangements for cryopreservation. These are individuals who know that cryonics is a worthwhile bet, who can manage the cost, but who just don’t get around to it. Maybe you— or someone you know—are one of these individuals? One person I knew—someone who had… Read more »

[FEATURED ARTICLE] Cryonics, September, 2013 The following interview with biogerontologist Michael Rose is the second in a series of interviews with prominent scientists in the field of aging. Questions were submitted by fans of the Alcor Facebook page and by the magazine editor. Has your work in fruit flies been followed by similar experiments in rodents? My work on the evolution of aging in response to… Read more »

In the August 2013 issue of Cryonics magazine, editor Aschwin de Wolf argues that a credible cryonics organization should aim to develop “cryonics without repair,” which would imply the placement of critically ill patients in (reversible) suspended animation.  Having such capabilities would render criticism concerning the destructive effects of the cryonics procedures themselves meaningless and cryonics would truly be a… Read more »

[FEATURED ARTICLE] Cryonics, August, 2013 (or, Corporations are People, Too…) By Keegan Macintosh In my last article, I looked at some historical and contemporary examples of legal activism aimed at expanding legal personhood to beings not already included in that category. As much as it was a fairly superficial survey, some trends could still be ascertained, firstly (and not so surprisingly) that courts tend to preserve the status quo… Read more »

[FEATURED ARTICLE] Cryonics, August, 2013 Why Reversible Cryopreservation Matters By Aschwin de Wolf [The following is a text adaptation of a PowerPoint presentation given on Sunday, May 12, 2013 at the Resuscitation and Reintegration of Cryonics Patients Symposium in Portland, Oregon.] Let’s start with the following definition of cryonics: “Cryonics is the stabilization of critically ill patients at ultra-low temperatures to allow resuscitation in the future.”… Read more »

The July 2013 issue of Cryonics magazine publishes a number of the proceedings of the 2013 Institute for Evidence Based Cryonics symposium about the resuscitation and reintegration of cryonics patients. Ben Best offers an extensive treatment of the role of temperature on the preservation and restoration of cryonics patients with an emphasis on the issues of molecular mobility at low temperatures, fracturing,… Read more »

[FEATURED ARTICLE] Cryonics, July 2013 By Aschwin de Wolf The goal of any credible cryonics organization is to develop reversible cryopreservation to avoid passing on problems with the cryopreservation process itself to the next generation. While there is a lot of recognition for the need to eliminate cryoprotectant toxicity, it is rather obvious that it will not be possible to restore integrated function in a fractured brain. The… Read more »

[FEATURED ARTICLE] Cryonics, July 2013 By Ben Best [The following is a text adaptation of a PowerPoint presentation given on Sunday, May 12, 2013 at the Resuscitation and Reintegration of Cryonics Patients Symposium in Portland, Oregon] An understanding of probable future repair requirements for cryonics patients could affect current cryostorage temperature practices. I believe that molecular nanotechnology at cryogenic temperatures will probably be required for repair and… Read more »

In the June 2013 issue of Cryonics magazine we catch up with Aubrey de Grey and talk about the nature of aging, rejuvenation, the future of cryonics, and the current status of SENS. In her regular column ‘Cooler Minds Prevail’ Chana de Wolf explores the relationship between immunosenescence and accelerated aging, using HIV infection as an illustration. Mike Perry continues his thoroughly… Read more »
