Coming to a state near you — freeze-dried bodies
The technology is called promession or cryomation. One of my sources in the funeral industry mentioned that certain states are now discussing permitting this process via legislation.
Promession involves submerging the body into liquid nitrogen, making the body so cold that it freezes and can be broken into tiny little pieces. Water from the body is then evaporated and all metals from the body removed. Just watch….
It is really nice to have options other than just sticking your body into a furnace, but I have personal reservations about this because it reminds me of a Star Trek rerun that scared the crap out of me when I was younger.
I’ll admit this episode doesn’t seem so scary now. But I find something unsettling about being reduced to a little freeze-dried cube.
