Writer's Block: Forever young
If cryogenics became a real, affordable option (i.e., if you could freeze your body until aging and illnesses were better understood), would you consider it? If so, do you fear you'd miss out on the wisdom that comes with growing old and dying?

If the technology really existed and was affordable, yes I would consider it. The wisdom of old age is somewhat exaggerated. By the time you're 40 you have probably picked up all the wisdom you're going to get.

I think it's highly exaggerated. I think we go on getting smarter until we reach our 40s, but from about 50 on it's all downhill. Old age is much scarier than anything else.

I would definitely consider it... not because I fear getting old, but because I fear dying.
