    theory of the variety of techniques include cryopreservation, a branch of cryobiology that focuses on the utilization of extremely low temperatures to preserve whole organic tissues or cells (Kaiser, 2002). In discussions of the future of our epistemological views of definitions of self and body as well as progression of technological biomedicine, one can only speculate, basing their propositions on a lower branch of cryobiology, cryonics. Gordon (1975) describes cryonics as the study involved in the

    Genetic Engineering and Cryonic Freezing: A Modern Frankenstein? In Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, a new being was artificially created using the parts of others. That topic thus examines the ethics of "playing God" and, though written in 1818, it is still a relevant issue today. Genetic engineering and cryogenic freezing are two current technologies related to the theme in the novel of science transcending the limits of what humans can and should do. Genetic engineering is widely used

    The story “To Build A Fire” written by Jack London has two nearly identical versions published in 1902 and 1908 respectively.

    Cryogenics Cryogenics is a largely growing field, relatively innovative in the field of science and research. It deals with freezing temperatures below –150 degrees Celsius (-238 degrees Fahrenheit) using oxygen, helium I, helium II (which are both are chemically identical), and nitrogen. These are cooled to the point of liquidation and used to freeze diverse materials and substances. “At these extreme conditions, such properties of materials as strength, thermal conductivity, ductility and

    Ferraris, Corvettes, large estates, gold dusted ice creams, or even hundred dollar socks all have something in common: they are all luxurious desires. However is cryonics, the process of preserving one's body for the hopes of future medical treatments to save, a mere luxury? Can no one find a real need to utilize cryonics? Does cryonics have any intrinsic value to society as a whole? Many believe that cryonics is just an “indulgence [for] rich people” (Alcor). Cryonics, in fact, can do much more
