Thanks for your answer. You sound pretty definitive here, and I
appreciate that you might well be correct, but I didn't see that in
what you referenced. Perhaps I missed something. When you say it
doesn't work, are you saying that the structures that are preserved
are too large to reconstruct a working brain? Or was there some other
objection? Or were you merely stating that it wasn't Gunther's intent
to create brains that could be revivified later?

I personally don't go in for the quantum state stuff... if that has
anything to do with your answer. There is plenty in the brain at the
gross level to account for what's going on in there, IMHO.
