Yes come to think of it, it would make better sense to breed torture victims than reanimate them from suspension; then again anything is possible in an infinite number of multiverses.
  i used cryonics as a reference because i'm an older person and expect to be suspended in a decade or two, so being tortured in this lifetime subjectively appears even more unlikely than being tortured in a current or future multiverse.

  I don't see how your concern applies to cryonics in particular. If you think it's at all likely (and I do not), surely it would apply to already-living people before those in need of revivification, purely from the standpoint of efficiency.

Subject: [ExI] a doubt concerning the h+ future

  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.
