You do have me thinking hard Eliezer, like I might have to change my
mind on something sort of hard.  Kudos, and my thanks for that.

I'm not persuaded to the wisdom of cryonics but as a result of your
argument I'm less confident than I was about the validity of the
discontinuity objection to it.

I hope it is intellectual caution and not my arrogance or stupidity that
causes me to conceed less quickly than I should.
