Walt Disney and the Perils of Cryonics

Fear of death causes us humans to do strange things… from hoarding material wealth like a species of gifted packrats… to robbing and stealing from each other to get our “fair share” of the social booty… from revering human embryos and outlawing abortion… to keeping hospital patients on their deathbed alive with a small army of breathing machines and feeding tubes and electronic monitors.

Fear of death compels us not just to cheat each other and the tax authorities, but to cheat death itself… and that can be especially problematic at a spiritual level when it comes to cryogenics, or, more specifically, the cryopreservation of the human body (cryonics)… freezing the body when we get terminally ill or grow old… hoping that one day we can be thawed out and restored to youthful vigor.

In November 1995, the ITC researcher Maggy Fischbach asked her spiritual mentors, The Seven ethereals, about the science of cryopreservation, and she received a report from Technician:

Walter Elias Disney, the man who produced many cartoon movies on your side, decided in 1969 to have his body frozen. His body was brought into that state when he was still alive. That means that he is not really dead.

Maggy told Technician that she had read about cryogenics, but she had doubts about the possibility of keeping someone alive through freezing. She believed that freezing the carnal body would probably cause death.

Technician replied:

He is not really dead and he is not really alive. Neither is he in the spirit world. He is able to leave his body, but not for a long period nor for any great distance. He is not aware what is happening to him. His state is between life and death.

This ITC contact in Luxembourg has been a little puzzling to me, as there are mixed reports as to whether Walt Disney really had his body frozen.

Even ABC News has said the rumor is untrue. (read more)

In any case, Technician’s report clearly describes the problems that can arise from our fear of death in the process of cryonics. The human spirit becomes lost and confused, and remains in that condition until the body is allowed to die… at which time the spirit can move on.

On another occasion we were told by Technician:

Fear of death is one of the most distressing concepts of human culture. It is based on the conscious belief that your bodily existence offers life and security, which it never wants to lose. Fear of death therefore is evidence of the mind having lost its roots. It shows a spiritual being who has far removed itself from its higher self. You owe this mentality largely to an intellectual and scientific way of thinking. It wants all thoughts reduced to a comprehensible level of material existence. Heaven is in man, and those who have heaven within themselves go to heaven. Heaven is in all those who recognize what is of God and let themselves be guided by the Divine. The priority and basic concern of every religion has always been the acknowledgement of God.

We have built-in spiritual blinders (read more about those blinders) that hide our rich spiritual heritage from view (read more on spirit reality) while we walk the Earth… and as a result we get absorbed in the illusion that this carnal lifetime is the ultimate purpose for our existence… and we cling to it desperately.

    So using your logic. We should do away with hospitals, doctors, medicine and CPR because they all prolong life and that is a terrible trap for the spirit that wants to move on? Or maybe just like your belief that Disney was frozen….you do not have a clue what you are talking about when it comes to cryonics which is different then cryogenics.

      Susan, thanks for making the distinction between cryonics (usually referring to the preservation of dead human bodies) and cryogenics, the broader use of very low temperatures (http://www.cryogenicsociety.org/).
      I was aware of the difference before posting the article, but neglected to mention it in the article. (I polished up the article, thanks to your comment.)

      Medicine, used well, improves life by reducing pain and suffering and beating diseases.
      Despite a few problems, such as its toxic relationship with the pharmaceutical business (see below)…

      … medicine today is a vital part of modern society.

      One of the big problems of medicine (and of society in general in these materialistic times) is that we tend to look at death as a disease that we have to beat like cancer or infection.
      That’s because we fear death, which we see as the end of everything.
      Truth is, death is just a transition to wonderful possibilities for our finer self, our spirit.
      Once we recognize that all-important truth, life and death fall into place.
      The line between medicine improving life and medicine prolonging life desperately and needlessly will become clear at that point.

    Have you ever read the book “Tuesdays with Morrie”?

    What a wonderful book that is. It shares so many important values that are beneficial to us as spiritual beings temporarily-inhabiting physical bodies.

    One section of the book features Morrie (the old man and former university professor currently in his deathbed) teaching the young man visiting him (a former pupil of his and very good friend) about being able to accept death. A memorable quote: “Learn how to die, and you learn how to live”. Basically I interpret this quote as really focusing on accepting one’s inevitable fate so that they can finally realize what can truly fulfill them in this lifetime (non-materialistic matters – focusing on higher, more noble levels of fulfillment).

    I also have to mention that I was recently thinking of that movie “Nosso Lar”. Thanks to you, I now consider that movie one of the most refreshing and fantastic movies I’ve ever seen. That’s a very special movie that I wish more people would have the opportunity to discover.

      Hi Ricky,
      I think I watched that movie more than 10 years ago, and it’s probably time to track it down for another viewing.
      It’s a good movie that puts death into better perspective.

      And Nosso Lar… an even better movie (imho) that puts death (and afterlife) into the right perspective.
