The future is here– but the cure hasn’t arrived yet.

Cryonics is an effort to save lives by using temperatures so cold that a person beyond help by today’s medicine might be preserved for decades or centuries until a future medical technology can restore that person to full health.

Cryonics sounds like science fiction, but it is based on modern science.  Presently, it’s an experiment in the most literal sense of the word.

We Will Live Again takes an unusual and extraordinary peek into the operations of the Cryonics Institute.

We follow Ben Best and Andy Zawacki as they maintain the 99 deceased human bodies stored at below-freezing temperatures in cryopreservation, awaiting the day when theoretically they will be revived to life and hoisted into the immortality of a coming age.

Meanwhile, cryonics movement founder Robert Ettinger, long-retired from overseeing operations at the Institute, still lives nearby, self-publishing books on cryonics and awaiting the end of this life– and eagerly anticipating the next.

What does the future hold for you?

  • No retirement age for rebellion
    From 50 years of our overstocked archivesSam Smith, 2008 - As of this day, I am one year past the biblical marker of three score and ten. According to the good book, I exist now by "reason of strength" rather than because of any inherent virtue. In fact, the Bible somewhat snottily warns, "yet is their strength labor and sorrow; for it is soon […]
  • An alternative to excessive jailing
    Julian Adler, Talk Poverty  Many of us who work in the criminal justice system have come to understand the profound connection between poverty and mass incarceration. Put simply, individuals with criminal histories — even minor ones — find it exceedingly difficult to enter the workforce and provide for their families. One pragmatic response to this problem i […]

    From an interview with Thomas Frank  published in Salon:Cornel West - The thing is [Obama] posed as a progressive and turned out to be counterfeit.

The war crimes in the Middle East, especially now in Gaza, […]

    Daily Dot - A whopping 52 mayors from cities across the country have all declared their support for the [Comcast-Time Warner] merger.

  • The brutalization of kindergarden
    Valerie Strauss, Washington Post - It used to be that kindergartners could play — which is how early childhood development experts say young children learn and are socialized best. Today 5- and 6-year-olds are forced to sit for hours at a time doing academics, often with little or no recess, and in some places, no time for a snack. Homework goes home every d […]
  • Obama aides join anti-union movements
    DS Wright, Firedog Lake - Though President Barack Obama once promised to “put on a comfortable pair of shoes myself, I’ll will walk on that picket line” when labor unions were under threat, his former campaign and government staffers are eagerly joining union busting groups for fun and profit.First there was Obama’s former press secretary Robert Gibbs and fo […]
  • The corporate side of the Ferguson conflict
    Alternet -  One group of people is decidedly happy about the militarized response in Ferguson: those who work in the weapons industry. The array of police forces--the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the St. Louis county and city police and local Ferguson officers--that descended on the largely black Missouri city have used the products these corporations are […]

  • Pocket paradigms
    When we talk about the national debt, we tend to make no distinction between types of national debt. There is an immense difference between going into debt for capital investments like schools and bridges and going into debt to pay current operating costs. That's why a bank will lend you money to buy a house but not for dinner and a movie. Our national […]
