We all know the myth that Walt Disney was cryogenically frozen. If you don’t completely know what cryogenic freezing is, it is a technique used to preserve industrial products. However, cryogenic freezing doesn’t have to be used on just on foods and other products. Can we extend the lives of mammals with this method? What if we used it on humans? Is that even possible?
Apparently, it is possible to preserve organs for another life. In February of this year, a cryogenically preserved rabbit brain has been revived almost exactly how it was before within the Brain Preservation Foundation. Scientists say it is even possible for humans. A little two year old girl named Matheryn Naovaratpong had died of a brain tumor in early January of this year in Bangkok, Thailand. Her family had her brain cryogenically frozen thanks to the Alcor Life Extension Foundation. Her family hopes to one day have their baby girl brought back to life. However, Matheryn wasn’t the only human to have her brain preserved. She was just the youngest to have her brain cryogenically frozen.
People tend to preserve the brains of the deceased to have them keep their personalities. One of the biggest foundations is the Alcor Life Extension Foundations and the Cryonics Institute. Even if they look different, those who has passed will come back again. But the real question is, will it work? So far it hasn’t been proven to be successful on a human at least, but maybe one day scientists will be able to bring our loved ones back to life.
But even if this does work, I don’t know if I would have myself or my family members do this. It still goes against nature, and it probably still wouldn’t be the same. Although this is a huge step in modern science, should we bring the dead back to life? Would you preserve yourself or someone else to live forever?
