Alcor Life Extension Foundation
Scottsdale, AZ

The Alcor Life Extension Foundation is the world leader in cryonics, cryonics research, and cryonics technology. Alcor is a non-profit organization located in Scottsdale, Arizona, founded in 1972. Cryonics is the science of using ultra-cold temperature to preserve human life in a state that will be viable and treatable by future medicine.

Cryonics is a speculative life support technology that seeks to preserve human life. It is expected that future medicine will include mature nanotechnology, and the ability to heal at the cellular and molecular levels. Cryonics, as practiced by Alcor, is not an interment method or mortuary practice.

Alcor intervenes in the dying process as soon as possible after legal death to preserve the brain as well as possible. Alcor seeks to prevent loss of information within the brain that encodes memory and personal identity, which is the true boundary between life and death. The purpose of cryonics is to maintain life, not reverse death. Lack of legal status as a person does not imply lack of moral status as a person. The spiritual status of cryonics patients is the same as frozen human embryos, or unconscious medical patients. When properly examined, cryonics has been endorsed by both clergy and theologians.

The intent and practice of cryonics are frequently misunderstood. Explore Alcor's web site at http://www.alcor.org and reach your own conclusions.
