I estimate it'll cost at least $1,000/yr to preserve a brain. That's about the cost of maintaining a family at global poverty levels.

I should have posted such calculations first before posting the excerpts. Thanks for your comments.

Interesting! How did you arrive at the $1,000/yr figure?

That's about the total annual cost of preserving a brain and spinal cord under an Alcor cryonics contract. I assume that the price paid while the patient are alive are roughly the same as the cost of preservation when dead.
