There might not be satellites... and so Rothblatt might be a fraud.

I don't exempt myself from the temptation of wanting to find the right trick for transforming your life. Just look at the cryonicists who've advocated get-rich-quick schemes, Objectivism, Neo-Tech, new country projects, transhumanism, Terasem, fringe dietary theories, dubious "life extension" strategies, etc.

I suppose you can view Classic Cryonics (Bob Ettinger's vision of it) as the ultimate life hack: Get frozen, and wake up some day as an Immortal Superman!

I noticed this personality characteristic in Ed Thorp, well before he signed up for cryonics, in his book on the mathematics of gambling. He wanted to find mathematical shortcuts to win at blackjack, of course. But he also writes that during his graduate studies he had read the scientific literature about the psychology of learning, at least what he had available to him in the 1950's, and he figured out how often he had to take breaks from his study of physics and math to stay mentally fresh.

Otherwise you'll turn into someone like John Grigg.
