They're dead and gone. Freezing is incredibly destructive on the cellular level, no way they'll be able to bring anything back from that state. Just because the bodies look intact to the human eye, doesn't mean they're not damaged beyond what can be repaired. It's a scam. Desperate people buying into the hope of cheating death.

While on the surface that may seem to be the case, when you freeze a thing using the right chemicals the cells don't rupture and thereby they could still be viable . . . \-ish

As that's not what's been done to them. Their cells are damaged beyond repair. They aren't dead ish. They are dead.

Nah bro. They're dead.

Nah, they're dead. We'll cure cancer and the common cold before we can reverse the damage freezing has on living tissue.

There's people in cryochambers?

I heard about a guy that was running one of these as a scam. When eventually he couldn't afford to keep them going, he just shut off the power and walked away.

Which is widely considered a dick move.

It's widely considered a massive crime, potentially on the "murder" side of things. Debatable, but I don't think anyone *doesn't* consider it a dick move.

They are only mostly dead

It would take a miracle

They are dead until further notice.

by Anonymous 6 months ago

Nah they're dead. Ice crystals have burst every cell in their body.

So from what I heard is the they usually only freeze the so they are understakenly dead at this point ead.

Counterpoint: they are clinically dead by every definition of the word

What makes them think anyone in the future would care to resurrect the?

by Anonymous 6 months ago

If we had someone who was frozen in the 1700s, there are people today who would want to wake them up and ask them some questions. Why would it be different in the future?

by Anonymous 6 months ago

I mean with the internet now a lot of the questions are going to be answered already.

by Anonymous 6 months ago

We can't look up on the internet what the lived experience of someone from the 1700s was like. Even though we have records from that time. Same will be true for future people. Having internet records won't tell you what now was really like to experience.

We are digging fossils to understand the past. I am sure there will be someone with lot of time and money for a side project.

Frozen embryos- no life processes, but fully capable of life

Schrodingers cat was such a terrible idea for explaining his concept. If he were alive today he would have changed it.

by Anonymous 6 months ago

They are definitely dead. Their bodies are just preserved.

by Anonymous 6 months ago

Most of the early ones have decomposed into plugs of frozen liquid too

by Anonymous 6 months ago

I don't think that's what Schrodinger's cat means

If you're hoping to resurrect anything, then by definition they are dead

by Anonymous 6 months ago

No they are absolutely dead. People just pretend like they aren't

by Anonymous 6 months ago

No...They're dead lol.

by Anonymous 6 months ago

No… they're dead and can't be revived. Cryo facilities are disgusting scams.

by Anonymous 6 months ago

no, they are dead. cryo destroy every single cell of you're body. they are long gone, there is nothing left to recover.

by Anonymous 6 months ago

No they're just dead. They're hoping it can be reversed to make them alive in the future, but for now they're truly dead.
