How a long way could you visit steer clear of death?

Frozen to Life is the genuine account of the author’s remarkable resolution to this query: If he can't get away the limitations of a 'natural' lifespan, he'll, upon his demise, have his severed head preserved in a vat of liquid nitrogen within the Arizona desert.

This booklet illuminates the dazzling technological know-how in the back of his selection, and the transformative strength of the patternist pondering that carried him to it. From the preliminary confusion and isolation of his upbringing at the Scottish islands of Benbecula and Skye comes a curious inkling that collides with dominant spiritual dogmas and alters relationships: What am I? what's a 'self'? needs to selves die?

Neuroscience - together with the most recent theories concerning the manner brain emerges from the structure of the mind - interweaves with philosophy, Buddhism, and private testimony to create a desirable and emotionally-charged perception into the psyche of a 'cryonaut' in waiting.

Written with empathy, searing perception, and darkish humour, Frozen to Life is either innovative and bleeding center: a postmodern scan in falling in love with lifestyles whereas getting ready for loss of life, in methods we will be able to switch ourselves substantially with out wasting our valuable humanity, and in coming to appreciate that neither existence nor dying is what we predict it is.
