Transhumanism, Cryopreservation and Believing that Re-Awakening is Possible

Some people believe that death is only temporary

Cryopreservation and, more generally, transhumanism, is based on the idea of waiting for research advancements. In a future where cancer and heart disease are no longer prevalent, it is reasonable to believe that a person who has died from either could be revived. Giuseppe Nucci is an Italian photographer, who toured KrioRus’s facilities in Russia and met transhumanists. They hope someone will waken them up.

The hope that the future would vanquish all the evils of today is as old and as ancient as the first civilisations who realized that life improved with every passing year. The Russian philosopher Nikolai Fedorovich Fedorov was instrumental in creating the cosmism movement of the early 20th century, which was based on the belief that given enough time humans could overcome evil and death. The simple solution to a short human lifespan was to prolong it even after death and stop its decomposition.
