Goulburn father and son pay $65,000 to have their bodies frozen – About Regional

Most of us have imagined what life after death looks like, but how many of us have imagined being brought back to life?

Goulburn father and son, Ron and Guy Fielding, aged 79 and 42 respectively, are prepared to pay a total of about $65,000 for the privilege other people such as Walt Disney were long-rumoured (albeit falsely) to have also signed up for.

The cab driver and club manager have each paid a $1600 deposit to be cryogenically frozen at the Cryonics Institute in Chicago. They will pay the remaining $64,000 when they die.

Cryonics is a relatively new science that allows people to be frozen in the hope of one day being revived instead of being cremated or buried.

As soon as the person dies, their body is taken to their chosen centre and cooled on dry ice until it reaches minus-130 degrees Celcius. The body is then placed into a container that is placed into a larger metal tank filled with liquid nitrogen at a temperature of around minus-196 degrees Celcius. They will remain there until technology allows them to be revived.

The chance at a second life may carry a heavy price tag, but as Ron and Guy say, even a cremation or burial costs thousands of dollars.

Ron had heard about cryonics many years ago and needed a family member or friend to sign up with him to be accepted into the Cryonics Institute. Thats when Ron put his hand up.

However, the pair would prefer to be frozen in Australia and they hope Southern Cryonics in Holbrook, southern NSW will be finished in time.

Southern Cryonics founder Peter Tsolakides says the building is finished and equipment is due to arrive in March.

However, people in Australia will need to be trained to freeze their patients cryogenically and, at the moment, the only people with the know-how are overseas or interstate. The company is waiting for the COVID-19 pandemic to be over to proceed.

Ron and Guy are both aware that their choice isnt widely supported, especially not by their family members who think its too expensive, are against the idea for religious reasons or worry what theyll come back to.

Its hard to convince people it will work, but Im a fairly open-minded person, and with science and technology advancing, I can see the possibility there, Guy said.

Yes were taking a gamble, but you can never say never, and the alternative is to be buried or cremated, which there is no chance of coming back from.

Likewise, Ron said: Look how far weve come in the past 200 years. We only started flying planes in the 1900s and now theyre going to the moon. Im a great believer in science, and I just believe its going to happen one day.

As for what theyll do if they are brought back to life, Ron would like to see how current family members lives panned out, while Guy will be eager to explore the new world he wakes up to.

Both expect Earth, if it still exists then, will look very different.

There wont be petrol or tyres, weve got to run out of materials in the earth eventually, and I dont think people will be working, I think everything will be done by robots, Ron said.

Whatever the future, if everything does go to plan, Guy is glad that hell be waking up with his father.

In morality as well as money, the pandemic costs us dear – The Conservative Woman

HOW much should I be prepared to pay not to die? The question is easy to ask, but hard to answer.

It is hard to answer partly because it is the most momentous of questions. But also because there are lots of variables.

For instance, are we talking about evading a death sentence that might be commuted in exchange for payment?

Or are we talking about mortality in general, in which case the question might better be put as: How much are you prepared to pay to have the chance of some kind of resurrected existence, such as that promised by cryonics?

Again, are we talking about surviving one kind of potentially fatal disease in order to face the possibility of contracting another in the future?

Or are we talking about surviving an accident where the outcome is straightforwardly binary?

Then there is the question of age. If I was a wealthy 99-year-old great-grandparent, might I not prefer to leave something to my family rather than blow my fortune on another year or two of presumably quite constrained existence?

And again, how much of a Mephistophelian bargain is this to be? Must I pay in blood as well as treasure? Must there be a sacrifice and, if so, whose? Can I send a slave to pay the price on my behalf?

What about the moral cost? That is, how should one answer if it turned out that the Emperor would relent if one were to be stripped of all dignity and compelled to copulate publicly with a wild animal before being thrown into a rat-infested jail? How far should, or would, one go?

The current Covid-19 pandemic raises very similar questions, albeit that they are couched in far more general and more genteel terms.

They are more general because they are being asked of me neither personally, nor in such a way that my answer would make all the difference. The question is more like: How much should society be prepared to pay for its citizens not to die from Covid 19?

Should it be prepared to pay everything it has, or just some of it? Is it willing to spend its childrens and grandchildrens inheritance and, if so, how much? Is there a sacrifice to be paid and, if so, who must pay it?

The answer we in the (still at least nominally) United Kingdom have given is that we are prepared to pay a great deal, with one proviso. The cost should be borne principally by others and should affect us individually as little as possible.

If this means spending the kids inheritance, or paying a moral price, or even sending in a scapegoat, so be it.

The moral price we have thus far consented to pay is principally at cost to our dignity and self-respect. By consenting to wear face masks, for example, we disguise our humanity. We hide from others theimago dei, the likeness to God in which, many think, we are made.

This is not to say that, unmasked, we look like God, rather that in covering our faces, we signal our moral and spiritual distance from the one in whose image we are made. This is an unfashionable concept but one which, if correct, points to the enormity of what we are doing.

In other respects too, we have shown ourselves willing to pay a considerable moral price: We have shown we are not only lacking in courage whatever happened to keep calm and carry on? but are also intemperate in our allocation of resources to one thing at the expense of many others (think cancer screenings and treatments missed).

Rather than take a step back to analyse the situation dispassionately, we have reacted violently to it and, in so doing, have shown ourselves to be imprudent in the extreme.

As to the matter of a scapegoat, it is worth reminding ourselves what a scapegoat is: Not just a person who is made to take the blame, but a third party who pays a price on behalf of another or others.

In some cultures, where an individual falls ill, an innocent bystander can be contracted or compelled to take on the malady by means of magical transference.

In the present case, the scapegoat is a collective one, rather than an individual. It is the poor not just of this country, but of other countries and the children of the poor who are to be sacrificed.

This sacrifice is not literal, of course, but will be exacted through loss of livelihood and loss of security.

We could call it 21st century colonialism, the genius of which is that it exploits the poor not only of other countries (principally through loss of trade and tourism), but also of the indigenous population.

How so? By transferring resources to the rich. This is happening already through the negative impact our reaction to the pandemic is having on the education of children in low-income families families who havent the intellectual, financial or social resources to make up for the disruption to schooling.

The one big difference between How much should I be prepared to pay not to die? and How much should society be prepared to pay? is that in the second question, the financial cost of my answer will be borne mainly by others (give or take a penny or two on my income tax).

Yet this apparent shift of the burden on to others is a red herring. It is not even that. It is a piece of deceit.

In the case of the pandemic, we will all pay (no matter how well we shield our wealth in property and other investments), by being members of a morally feeble society where the poor are made poorer; where the educational and health and economic prospects of the majority is massively reduced; where individuals have been rendered suspicious of one another because their faces are concealed; where bitterness at having allowed ourselves to be hoodwinked by a power-crazed bureaucracy (albeit encouraged by most of us) fuels first the anger, then the despair, then the violence that seems all too likely to ensue.

The question of how much society should be prepared to pay for its members not to die today but tomorrow (or, if not tomorrow, not far in the future) turns out not to be different from the question: How much am I prepared to pay not to die? We are fooling ourselves if we think it is.
