A man paid $100,000 to be frozen with his family in the hope of 'waking up to a better future'


Dennis Kowalski argues that in 100 years the technology will exist to revive them and thus 'come back from the dead'.

People dream of eternal life or simply being able to spend a little more time on this earthly plane.

Dennis Kowalski

wants to fulfill a wish that seems a little crazy, but it feels very real to him.

The man seeks to be frozen along with his family

in hopes of waking up in the future.

It would be very similar to what happens to Fry, the protagonist of Futurama: a young man who is accidentally frozen in 1999 and wakes up in the year 3000.

The funny thing is that Kowalski got this idea from a show he watched when he was young and started researching it.

Today, he is a respected businessman who runs the Cryonics Institute, a body specializing in this topic.

What is cryonics?

Cryonics is the practice of preserving humans and animals at cryogenic temperatures.

According to the

National Library of Medicine

, cryonics "is the practice of preserving humans and animals at cryogenic temperatures in the hope that future science may restore them to a state of healthy life, as well as rejuvenate them." The preservation process involves cooling the body at a very low temperature, usually below -195 degrees Celsius.

In this way, all biological activity is stopped and any damage to the cells is prevented.

As reported by the newspaper

El ciudadano

, Kowalski maintains that in 100 years the technology will exist to revive someone from the dead and stated that "no one knows the future, and it is impossible to know for sure".

"You have nothing to lose by keeping your body after death, but potentially everything to gain."

Kowalski revealed that

he, his wife and their three children have already signed for their bodies to be preserved

: "I talked to them and they understand it."

"They agree that the possibility of waking up, even at home, is worth it. They are also quite optimistic about the future," he added, according to the aforementioned Media.

In addition, the man had to pay about 30 thousand dollars for each member of his family.

Kowalski believes that "real science is even more magical if you give it a chance. I'm a dreamer, but I'm also a realist. I understand it might not work, but it's worth a try."
