Russian cryonics company, KrioRus, claims secret of eternal life! The solution includes, freezing your brains until the evolution of such future technology that will allow the brain to be transplanted into a new body and resuscitated. KrioRus believes the brain operates like a computer hard-drive and its contents can be frozen and stored for the future.
Sounds freaky? Not to all. KrioRus reportedly already has stored four full bodies and eight people’s heads in liquid nitrogen-filled metal vats. The fee for freezing the brain is $10,000 dollars while the full body freeze is priced at $30,000.
We know that the personality is stored in the brain. So when a person’s body is old, there’s no reason to keep it, said Danila Medvedev, who runs KrioRus, the first cryonics outfit outside the United States. Cryonics, or the freezing of humans in the hope of future resuscitation, is illegal in France and much of the world.
The company that was launched in 2005 and has 30 clients, who wish to have their brains or bodies frozen, is deemed to be a fraud by many.
KrioRus first client Lidia Ivanova died before the company even existed. Lidia’s grandson put her brain on dry-ice, which he kept in his apartment for eight months until KrioRus got its first metal container.
