Alcor: Buy Immortality at just $200,000It is now possible to freeze your brain and preserve it somewhere safe. In Scottsdale, Arizona, there are almost 147 brains being preserved by Alcor. They are frozen in liquid nitrogen and scientists are hoping that one day the brains could be revived or brought back to life.

It is not some fairy tale or sci-fi movie concept, but this is actually possible. Millions of people from around the world are willing to freeze and preserve their brains after their death.

Max More, CEO of the Scottsdale-based company Alcor, which is preserving brains feels, “If you think back half a century or so if somebody stopped breathing and their heart stopped beating we would’ve checked them and said they’re dead. Our view is that when we call someone dead it’s a bit of an arbitrary line. In fact, they are in need of a rescue.”

After a patient is declared dead by the doctors, Alcor comes and try to rescue the dead by preparing an ice bath and begins administering 16 medications and variations of antifreeze until the patient’s temperature drops to near freezing.

Max More further explains “The critical thing is how fast we get to someone and how quickly we start the cooling process.”

Alcor has a well-equipped team in the UK, Canada, and Germany.

If a patient has chosen the Neuro option at Alcor, that is to protect the brain them the surgeon removes the patient head and keeps it safe. Keeping the brain safe comes at a price tag of $80,000 whereas preserving the whole body comes at a price tag of Rs200,000.
