When You Die...
« on: March 21, 2019, 06:00:16 AM »
A little off the political track but I recently had a conversation about what a person might want done with the leftover body after death.

I said (and I'm serious), I want my body cremated and my ashes turned into a firecracker. They can do that.

Some were aghast at the idea -- one thought it was a sin to destroy the body because it was going to be needed (those old bones) to physically resurrect. Another said she'd never considered it -- thinking her family would just bury her in the family plot in the cemetery where three generations of her ancestors lie.

But one thought it was a great idea and said, "Me too!" 

Personally, I think burying dead bodies is a bad practice - I think it's a source of ground pollution.

What think ye?

I think cemetery's time is over.. too many dead bodies not enough land, and the pollution from cemeterys is just being understood.

My first choice would be to preserve my body in an alternate frozen state so they can revive me when they technology is ready.

None of the other choices are appealing to me.. I dislike my body being buried and eaten by worms, and I dislike my body being burned to ashes.

LOL  I remember that!

I like your plan -- it's better than most. In the not-too-distant future, we'll likely find cures for most diseases and for old age. A golden time to live in to be sure.

Have any of you ever seen the movie Forever Young??

First, it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

What about this ?

Humans could download their brain on to a computer and live forever inside a machine, a Cambridge neuroscientist has claimed.

Dr Hannah Critchlow said that if a computer could be built to recreate the 100 trillion connections in the brain their it would be possible to exist inside a programme.

Dr Critchlow, who spoke at the Hay Festival on ‘busting brain myths’ said that although the brain was enormously complex, it worked like a large circuit board and scientists were beginning to understand the function of each part.
