Everyone dies or does everyone?
Cryonics is a technology that is available today. Is it worth it and what is it?
Oh, I also linked videos of one specific YouTube channel here. I checked other videos and websites too. I don’t blindly trust some video.
Cryonics is freezing a human corpse or head in the hope that future technology can revive those people.
Sure, technology becomes better and better. I believe that it would be possible in the future, but not in the near future. That does not make it ethical though.
Why not Cryonics?
So you have put waste on the Earth while you were alive and you want to even put more waste on the Earth while you are death? Cool.
Basically Cryonics uses much energy and the chance that people will revive you soon is pretty slim.
Endless life seems to be dangerous in my opinion. Just like human like AIs. We already have an overpopulation and garbage problem. More humans just gives us more chance on war in my opinion.
It is not cheap either and it is a gamble anyways. Wait until science gets closer. No human has ever been revived. Are you so special that you deserve more lifetime?
Your cells should be intact in cryonics, but remember that the people behind cryonics usually do it in their free time.
Can you wake up in a coffin or during cryonics?
No. Also they close your mouth when you are in coffin. They usually put wires in it. People often have their mouth open when they die. Don’t worry you are death and won’t wake up.
Oh, btw don’t get a “protective” coffin. It will not prevent your body for decomposing. It is only for looks.

Aren’t other options also bad for the Earth?
Yes most options aren’t perfect.
Cremation is better than coffins and costs less resources, but the machine consumes much energy. It also releases toxic gasses that can cause cancer.
There are options which are available in some places which are eco-friendly. It is often called water cremation and conservation burial.
Conservation burial is just nature. Water cremation makes the process go faster, but it is still much better than the usual process (cremation and burials).

Religious people are against the eco methods
Some religious people are against the eco methods. Honestly what kind of God is that then?
Believe what you want though. I try to respect everyone. I personally don’t find God a logical thing, but sure it could be thing, I guess.
Interested in death?
Let me recommend the following YouTube channel. It is not bad to think about death. Everyone dies.

Ghosts are likely fake
I hate to break your fantasies about ghosts and such. Anyways this might give some people some comfort.
People just want to get money out of you, so they try to make you believe in ghosts. Many of these ghost things weren’t a thing in earlier history.
I really wanted to believe ghost stuff by finding some facts, but there has never been a thing that couldn’t be scientifically proven that I have heard about ghosts.
Haunted places exists though, but I am not sure how real they are. I should do some more searching about that. It is weird stuff.

How I want people to act when I die
First of all. I would like to have a conservation burial if possible. I don’t want to put more waste on the Earth while I am death.
Just move on. Don’t organise some rethinking sad moment. A funeral does not have to be sad. It doesn’t helps anyone to have a sad moment.
In fact I wouldn’t mind if people organise a party for my death, lol. Think about the good moments you had with me and move on. Don’t just stand there and waste your time, create new fun moments, maybe make some new connections during. Talk.
