The research paper Seminar Topic Cryonics On Way to Raising the Dead Nano Technology explains Cryonics and Nanotechnology. The paper posits that Nanotechnology is nothing but a technology which uses atoms with a view to creating a desired product. It has wider applications in all the fields. Cryonics is an important domain of Nanotechnology. Cryonics is nothing but an attempt of raising the dead – making them alive. First we preserve the body then by using molecular machines based nanotechnology we could revive the patients by repairing damaged cells.
History of Cryonics: The paper casts light on the past. It says that historically cryonics began in 1962 with the publication of “The prospect of immortality” referred by Robert Ettinger, a founder and the first president of the cryonics institute. During 1980’s the extent of the damage from freezing process became much clearer and better known, when the emphasis of the movement began to shift to the capabilities of nanotechnology.
What is Cryonics: The word “cryonics” is the practice of freezing a dead body in hopes of someday reviving it. A Cryonics is the practice of cooling people immediately after death to the point where molecular physical decay completely stops, in the expectation that scientific and medical procedures currently being developed will be able to revive them and restore them to good health later. A patient held in such a state is said to be in ‘cryonic suspension.
Drawbacks: Not all dead can be cryonically preserved. The research abstract says that legal death is a declaration by medical personnel that there is nothing more they can do to save the patient. But if the body is clearly biologically dead, having been sitting at room temperature for a period of time, or having been traditionally embalmed, then cryonicists would hold that such a body is far less revivable than a cryonically preserved patient, because any process of resuscitation will depend on the quality of the structural and molecular preservation of the brain.
The research paper concludes on the note that Cryonics is a promising field to resurrect the dead. But taking into consideration the financial constraints and other legal issues the field still has miles to go.
