The Study of Life and Death at Low Temperatures
By Greg Fahy, Ph.D. Dr. Fahy, one of the world's premier cryobiologists, provides
an eminently readable overview of the science of cryobiology -- usually
thought of as the study of the effects of subfreezing temperatures on biological systems.

Cryonet is the primary mailing list used by cryonicists to communicate with each
other and discuss the state of cryonics and cryonic suspension. The Cryonet Home Page,
maintained by Kevin Q. Brown, is a valuable resource for finding information pertaining to
all aspects of cryonics. To subscribe to the mailing list (Cryonet) itself, send email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject

If you've read TRANS TIME's Cryonics
Intro and still have questions, this is a great place to get them answered. Many
interesting aspects of cryonics addressed.
The Molecular Repair of the Brain
This paper by Dr. Ralph Merkle was
originally published as "The Technical Feasibility of Cryonics" in
Medical Hypotheses Vol. 39, 1992; 6-16. It covers a tremendous amount of scientific
ground, concluding ultimately that cryonics patients suspended under average conditions
today probably have a good chance of being revived by the medicine of the future.
"We are dedicated to providing a service that allows researchers in this field
to find information that is related to the study of the aging process. We also endevour to
introduce this field to laymen who would like to know more about the research that is
being conducted in this field."
"The Life Extension Foundation is dedicated to the pursuit of a longer,
healthier lifespan. We provide our members with information about the latest life
extension research, products and therapies. And we offer some of the most advanced life
extension products in the world at discount prices."

conference is by far the largest gathering of anti-aging researchers and activists in the
First published in 1986, this book arguably did more to legitimize the practice of
cryonics than anything before or since.
"Foresight Institute's goal is to guide emerging technologies to improve the
human condition. Foresight focuses its efforts upon nanotechnology, the coming ability to
build materials and products with atomic precision, and upon systems that will enhance
knowledge exchange and critical discussion, thus improving public and private policy
Merkle's Nanotechnology Page
If you haven't read about nanotech before, this is a great place to start, beginning with
a few brief paragraphs introducing the core concepts, and continuing with links to other
sources and publications.
An exploration of the implications (which are vast, to say the least) of nanotech to the
field of medicine in general.
"Extropy is the extent of a system's intelligence, information, vitality,
diversity, and capacity for improvement. Extropians seek to increase
"Transhumanism is a philosophy that humanity can, and should, strive to higher levels
physically, mentally and socially. It encourages research into such areas as life
extension, cryonics, nanotechnology, physical and mental enhancements, uploading human
consciousness into computers, and megascale engineering.
