Yes, I thought that was obvious. Incidentally, a
major problem of cryo is frost damage to cells
and organs, and perhaps 'natural antifreeze' such
as some Antarctic fish have might prove helpful
(i.e. decay halted through supercooling without
ice crystal formation).

However IMHO we'll have SAI before any radical
improvements in cryo techniques. It's the same
story with my (and other people's) ideas about
randomly choosing people for government offices
instead of electing them. SAI will prob. happen
first and obviate the whole subject.

No more posts from me on cryo in this forum.
