Who are the Experts on Cryonics?

Link post

I really liked the recent essay Who are the Experts on Cryonics? by Max More.

Here’s why I think you might like this article:

  • There are a lot of generally relevant points about when/​how to trust experts, not specific to cryonics.

  • I think it does a really good job at explaining how to identify the relevant experts in cryonics to help you assess the value of current and potential cryonics.

  • It has a list of interesting famous wrong predictions ‘experts’ made.

Here’s the table of content:

  • Whose expertise is relevant to evaluating cryonics?

  • Experts dropping the ball

  • Factors to consider in evaluating expertise

  • How experts can be wrong

  • Caution: Expert ahead!
