R. Michael Perry is more than a PhD, the Care Services Manager at Alcor Life Extension Foundation, an author (Forever for All: Moral Philosophy, Cryonics and the Scientific Prospects for Immortality) and a universal thinker. He is a composer. He composed “Opus 1” in 2013. After purchasing his CD at a life- extension conference recently, I didn’t open it to play for a week or two. It merely sat on my desk as if it was beckoning me to play it. Frankly, I loved the image on the cover of the CD, and having known Mike for two decades or longer as a life-extensionists and an ordained Minister of the Society of Venturism (in fact, he was the minister who married my husband and me back in 1996), I had no idea he was also a composer.

Death has historically been believed to be an event that coincided with the onset of clinical death. It is now understood that death is a series of physical events, not a single event, and that the determination of permanent death is dependent on other factors beyond the simple cessation of breathing and heartbeat. We may need to accept the concept of the life cycle assessment introduced by nanotechnology or astrobiology, a process that is often called transhumanism.

“What can surpass the pyramids of Egypt as a symbol of the strength of mankind’s reach for immortality? Today, Timeship is founded on the bedrock of science rather than merely the symbols observed in the natural world. Ultimately, history may judge the impact of Timeship as more profound than that of the pyramids on the ultimate fate of the human species.”
