(You can fetch cryomsg "n" by sending mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or
to email@example.com with the subject line "CRYOMSG n". The index
to this FAQ list is cryomsg "0018.1".)
8-1. How can I get more information?
Steve Bridge's "Introduction to Cryonics" gives a quick, three-page
overview of cryonics. This overview is cryomsg 972.
For a more detailed introduction, including a discussion of the
scientific evidence that freezing injury may be repairable, read the
booklet "Cryonics: Reaching for Tomorrow", which is available from the
Alcor Life Extension Foundation (Question 6-4 has the address). The
first copy is free. It also includes an extensive Question and Answer
The books "Engines of Creation" and "Unbounding the Future", by
K. Eric Drexler, et al. describe nanotechnology (also called
molecular nanotechnology or molecular engineering). This is the
kind of technology needed to revive anyone preserved with today's
methods of cryonic suspension.
The largest three suspension organizations each have newsletters. For
contact information about on them, see the answer to Question 6-4.
8-2. What is a cryomsg? How do I fetch one?
There has been a cryonics mailing list since July 1988.
Cryomsg's are mostly the archived messages from this mailing list.
To get a cryomsg, send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or to
email@example.com with the subject "CRYOMSG nnn nnn" where the
nnn's are the numbers of the cryomsg's you want. Cryomsgs numbers
100, 200, ..., 900 have one line summaries of the preceding 100
cryomsg's. Message number 0000 has a top level index, and message
number 0001 has the subjects of all of the messages. Message 0004
has a list of cryonics suspension organizations and also
cryonics-related organizations and publications. Message 0005 is
entitled "Suggested reference messages for new subscribers".
