Why would your hypothetical future beings reanimate human beings for such a

Having signed up to be cryonically suspended i wonder if future beings will
reanimate humans to torture them in perpetua. The likelihood of such might
be small, but just say there's a .001 risk of eating a certain food and
going into convulsions lasting years-- would i eat that food? No.
 I signed up to be suspended anyway yet always wonder about the direst of
reanimation possibilities seeing as how we live in a multiverse not a
universe, and all possibilities are conceivable. Though the risk is very
small if one loses the odds and is tortured forever, death would seem like a
wonderful priceless gift.
