The Mission Of The Cryonics Society
The Cryonics Society aims to foster support for the emerging science of cryonics by educating the public, advocating for more research, and by providing objective and unbiased information about cryonics and its benefits to everyone.
Why do we feel the public should support cryonics? Because such a technology could have many extraordinary social benefits. The goal of cryonics is to produce a technology capable of halting the process of biological decay. It seeks to 'pause' a living being or any biological material, the way a television remote pauses a picture, and in such a way to save them from further decay and therefore destruction.
If such a cryonics technology were available, it would result in new life-enhancing possibilities which could improve all our lives. Consider these examples:
> Long-term organ banking would be a reality. Men, women, and children would no longer have to die because donor organs would no longer rapidly decay.
> People with conditions once considered fatal - even the disease of "old age" - would have the option of choosing to wait till that condition were cured.
> Endangered species could be preserved from extinction indefinitely.
> Seriously ill people would have precious additional time while waiting for specialists to arrive or for particular medicines or treatments to be developed.
> Food supplies could be stored in lasting ways that might help alleviate hunger or famine.
> Treatments in related life-saving areas like cryomedicine and cryosurgery might well advance.
> Unwanted embryos might possibly be safely removed and maintained till the mother could re-implant it and care for the child under better conditions, or give another woman the option to give birth to it. Women might no longer need to face the sole alternatives of childbirth or abortion.
> Long periods of isolation or travel would be made endurable. Interstellar travel, voyages to new and extraordinary futures, would become real and possible.
In short, the development of a working cryonics technology would clearly save a great number of lives, advance scientific knowledge, and reduce or erase a tremendous burden of human suffering.
But to make those compassionate and humane goals a reality, human beings need to come together and to work together to achieve that end. How? By joining the Cryonics Society.
The Cryonics Society is making concerted efforts to send a positive message of hope and possibility to the public and to the world. Using professional approaches in areas ranging from traditional fields like direct mail to the latest internet innovations, the Cryonics Society is acting now to give everyone a chance to be a part of tomorrow.
