Minneapolis Cryonics is a recently formed group of mostly Twin Cities cryonicists. Most of us are members of the Alcor Life Extension Foundation in Scottsdale, Arizona or the Cryonics Institute in Clinton Township, Michigan.
We started meeting locally in August of 2018 to plan for emergency preparation and shipping from the Twin Cities to Alcor or CI. There are around twenty of us, so far. Not everybody attends every meeting. And not everybody is signed up for suspension.
We’ve just started holding more frequent, monthly meetings, and we’re inviting anyone interested to stop by to see what we’re up to. We’re also looking for anyone who wants to volunteer to help us out in any way they can. Anybody with any level of interest or curiosity is welcome. If you’re a paramedic, lawyer, nurse or doctor, all the better.
If you attend, we’ll take some time to talk to you and try to answer any questions you might have. Then, you’re more than welcome to stay for the rest of the three-hour meeting.
For the uninitiated, cryonics is an attempt to minimize human cell damage at the point of declared death, and then to provide low-temperature storage until technology of the future allows revival.
Already-promising advances in nanotechnology (cell manipulation on an atomic level) and high-speed quantum computing will probably figure into any eventual success. And who knows what yet-unknown technologies tomorrow will offer?
We have an option to call in to our meetings via jami (www.jami.net) or even phone-call if you can't attend in person. If anyone would like to do this, we have a techie among us (Chris Petersen) who can help you get set up for that. Let us know! We're doing all this work so you get good suspensions. Come talk with us!
