Man's dream of eternal life is no longer something that exists only in movies, a US company has announced.

Alcor - a company based in the state of Arizona (USA) - claims to be the world leader in technology to help people become immortal.

“We are living in the most technologically advanced period in human history. Immortality is no longer a pipe dream,” Alcor declared.

According to Alcor, they could perfectly keep human bodies and brains frozen in liquid nitrogen. The preserved people will be revived by advanced technology in the future. Alcor is currently cryopreservating 184 people who have been found dead.

To use Alcor's whole body freezing service, users have to pay a fee of up to 200,000 USD. Max More - CEO of Alcor - thinks that this is an affordable amount to have eternal life.

“Alcor only preserves patients when today's medicine has run out of ways. Think of it like this, 50 years ago, if you saw a person stop breathing while jogging, you would conclude that they were dead. We don't do that today. We'll do CPR, do first aid... Those who died 50 years ago could have been saved. Freezing works the same way. We prevent the body from further harm, until medics find a way to revive them," Max More said.

“200,000 USD is an affordable price. If you can afford to go to Starbucks for coffee a few days a week, you can use our service,” Mr. More added.

After a person is legally declared dead, Alcor's conservatorship begins.

First, the dead person is moved to an ice bed, covered with ice. Then Alcor will use a cardiopulmonary resuscitation machine, sending blood throughout the body of the deceased. 16 different chemicals are used to protect the cells, preventing them from becoming dysfunctional even after the patient dies. With this procedure, Alcor confidently preserves the patient's memory even after resuscitation.

“Since the patient is legally deceased, Alcor is able to apply methods that have not been approved in conventional medicine,” Mr. More revealed.

“Death is not the end. It just changes the timing of your life,” Mr. More concluded.
