The Truth About Cryonics with Garret Smyth
At the Dissenters Chapel on Sunday 15th October at 3 pm

Exactly fifty years ago in 1967 University of California psychology professor James Bedford became the first person ever to be cryogenically frozen. Since then cryonics has became a major industry with three centres in the USA and one in Russia and 1500 people on the waiting list to be cryopreserved on their death in the hope of being resuscitated in the future.

But is cryonics just a scam whose victims will never realise they have been duped? Or is it the gateway to eternal life? Will the cryopreserved person wake up to an earthly paradise where all known diseases can be cured or perhaps where the contents of the brain can be digitally uploaded into a virtual existence? Or will they find a world run by robots where human beings are merely curios?

Garret Smyth, one of the people signed up to go into the deep freeze on his death, will address the issues surrounding this controversial branch of science.
