You can now buy a chance to be immortal for 1.32 crores.
Companies like Alcor are offering their services in Cryonics, and with it a chance to live forever. Let us first talk about Cryonics and what it means. Cryonics is the process of freezing a dead person for future revival. This is based on the assumption that people who cannot be saved by medical science today, might possibly be revived by medical practitioners decades or even centuries later, when the medical science has made such advances. Based on this assumption, a person who has paid for his/her vitrification will be freezed to sub zero temperatures within minutes of death.
This is not similar to mummyfication. Vitrification will prevent ice formation in cells and organs. All the systems of body will be preserved in perfect condition as this procedure is done within a few minutes after heart stops beating.
Though 1.32 crores is a lot of money, it does give you a chance to possibly see the world decades or centuries after all your peers are dead! What we do not know is whether that world would be worth all this money!
