Cryonics refers to the storage of the human body or brain so that it might be resurrected later when there is technology advanced enough to heal damaged parts.
Cryonics scientists believe that in the future, nano robots which are small tiny machines built for specialized purposes will be created which would allow the repairing of damaged human tissues.
However, critics believe that Cryonics is a sham and should be classified as science fiction because no human being can be brought back from the dead.
Although they agree with the notion that a person's memory might be uploaded by an advanced technology, it is unlikely that a person could be brought back to life.
However, cryonics believe that a person's body if properly stored could stay intact for hundreds of years.
Individuals can opt to participate in the Cryonics process by paying for the procedure and making legal preparations for their whole body or parts of their body to be stored.
Bodies could be prepared for storage minutes or hours after death, but bodies can only be stored after a person has been pronounced clinically and legally dead.
Preparation for cryonics include the use of cryopreservation; this involves the extreme freezing of the body at -196 degrees Celsius.
However, to prevent the body from turning into ice, all body fluids are channelled out of the body, leaving the body an empty vessel. Then, cryo-protectants are injected into the body ensuring that the organs of the body are not turned to ice as a result of the cooling.
Many notable people have been known to preserve their body parts.
The founders of PayPal; Luke Nosek and Peter Thiel have had their bodies undergo Cyronics.
However, one of the biggest obstacles of Cyronics is that; it is unlikely that any chronic company would be in business long enough to allow its patients to witness the resurrection of future technology.
