Lasting as long as a diamond eternity ring
Human life expectancy has greatly increased over the years. Gone are the times where a life expectancy of 30 was the norm and some scientists think that the first person who will live to over 200 has already been born. There are many items on earth that outlive a human. Whether this is the trees that surround us or the crystals and jewels that form a part of the jewellery we wear, like those you can find at https://www.comparethediamond.com/diamond-eternity-rings
What then for the rest of us poor souls that are not millennials. What about us Baby Boomers, us Generation X and Generation Yers? Well there’s health living and watching your diet for a start but if that’s not an option then it might be an idea to look at cryogenic freezing. What’s that all about? Well it’s very simple in principle. You know how you stick a chicken or veggies in the freeze well it’s like the human equivalent of that but safer. At present the point of freezing food and liquid is to keep it in a state so it doesn’t go off. It’s basically “frozen” in stasis in time. It only lasts for a while though as you can get freezer burn which is a form of dehydration. Don’t forget there maybe ice but it’s technically a very dry environment. For example, its not snowed or rained at the South pole in decades. Its still very much in its infancy so don’t go sticking yourself in a chest freezer just yet as there a few kinks to work out.
The dehydration is the first point the second is humans die when they get too cold. Therefore, science has to come up with a way of freezing you but also keeping you alive. One of the proponents of this was Walt Disney. The rumour goes that he had his head frozen after death so that if the technology ever become available then Uncle Walt comes back with a robot body or a donor is found (we’ve recently been able to do a face transplant, so you never know). If that happens it will be interesting to see the look on John Lassiter’s face
Cryogenics first motive for use is if you have a terminal illness you can store the body until a cure is found. Where not there yet but you can still sort yourself out. The current process is that you firstly need to be dead. Delightful chemicals are added to the brain to stop that nasty clotting of blood and that it still flows around but at a reduced rate. The body is packed in ice and something akin to embalming fluid is pumped into your body to keep the internal organs nice and fresh. It doesn’t answer the question, “where does the soul go?”, when all this happens. Well that’s cheery isn’t it. Anyone fancy a pint? A think I might have a warm beer for once.
