(NEWSMAX) — It is just a matter time before scientific advances will enable preserved bodies to be revived after death, a British futurist told The Telegraph.
“It’s impossible to give a date to say when we can revive people . . . it could be decades, a century,” Dr. Max More, president and CEO of Alcor Life Extension Foundation, admitted.
He insisted, however, “we are developing the technology to reduce the damage to our patients to get them cryo-preserved, but we don’t know exactly how we will reverse that process right now.”
More compared the situation to being “like Leonardo Da Vinci, who could design wings and helicopter which could work, but he didn’t have the tools to build them back then.”
More said he has plans for himself in the future to preserve just his head, saying “the rest of my body is replaceable.”
Alcor, which began storing bodies in 1982, is one of the world’s largest cryogenic facilities. It has 1,100 paying members on its books, and there are currently 149 patients at the facility, including the youngest person ever cryo-preserved (a two-year-old from Thailand), as well as baseball star Ted Williams.
