A tragedy, all right, though it may have eased his suffering.
Much less suffering would occur if people could only realize that
death, true information loss, doesn't take place until many hours
after the patient is pronounced dead. Zhabotinsky could have
been frozen long before his cancer had become unendurable.
Moreover, his family would know that he still had a chance.
How long will it take for people to wake up?

I first read about him in Prigogine's books. Speaking of whom, why
do so few other books and articles reference Prigogine? Did he do
something to offend the scientific community?
