• Cryonics! the Musical

    Posted by gmadmin   |   June 30, 2012

    Ok, not really. But I have cryonics on my mind today for some reason.

    When I was a freshman in college, my buddy Kale and I watched Vanilla Sky and became interested in the subject of cryopreservation. It turned out that the biggest cryonics center in the world is here in town, so we went there for a tour. It was absolutely fascinating, and I ended up volunteering there a few times just because I enjoyed being in such a brainy environment.

    It’s a mind-boggling premise. What if you could freeze your brain and be thawed out sometime in the future? The idea got a lot more attention back in the eighties and nineties and was mostly dismissed because the technology just wasn’t there. But like in all other areas of science, enormous strides are being made, and the issue is worth revisiting. I keep toying with the idea of writing a one-act on the subject. Probably my favorite thing about Go Musicals is my freedom to write about whatever I want. Hopefully others will find this stuff as fascinating as I do!
