As I’ve said many times before, these are science fictional times we live in. I just got news that the Arizona Legislature is attempting to pass rules that may outlaw many of the procedures and services offered by the Alcor Life Extension Foundation. Alcor, in case you didn’t know, is an organization that offers cryonic suspension. This bill (HB 2637) is being spearheaded by Arizona’s funeral industry, allegedly because that same industry feels threatened by the cryonics movement.
I must have read at least a half dozen shorts in Analog about just this sort of plot premise! First Ted Williams, now this. Interesting times.
