Science of Cold Heats Up

Abstract:
... cryonicists look toward advanced nanotechnology for repairing cellular and biochemical damage that still happens with today’s preservation technology. Nanotechnology expert Ralph Merkle has argued that cryonics is at worst a cryptography problem that involves inferring and restoring a healthy tissue state based on detailed analysis of preserved injured tissue. This only becomes impossible when so much information is lost due to injury that “information-theoretic death” has occurred, and there is inadequate information to restore the original patient. This perspective suggests that almost everyone declared dead today doesn’t really die until several hours later.
