Create a Bio File

How it Works

Store your cells alive, with their biological clocks stopped for an indefinite amount of time1. Sign up for the LifeNaut BioFile Project. There is no charge, however we greatly appreciate your tax- deductible donations. 2. We send you a bottle of mouthwash and a collection tube. 3. You gargle the mouthwash, then send it to us. We collect the live cells from your sample and store them at liquid nitrogen temperature (-190° C) for an indefinite period of time. 4. After you have been declared legally dead, future technology may be able to grow you a new body via ectogenesis and your mindfile may be able to be downloaded into it, enabling you to live on indefinitely.

Benefits

By combining a LifeNaut Bio File™ account with a LifeNaut Mind File™ account, there is a chance that future technology will be able to grow you a new body from your stored live cells and allow you to then download your conscious mindfile into that body.

Sustainability

Terasem Movement Foundation’s HQ in Northern Vermont is 100% powered by the solar panels & 100% heated/cooled by geothermal loop under pond, also powered by PV. Thus, Net Zero.  TMF safekeeps mindfiles and biofiles of lifenauts for future revitalization in accordance with their consents and technology advancements, while also spreading the good word that software people are people too — not having a body makes you differently abled, not sub-human. TMF also encourages work on cyber-consciousness via Bina48 tweets (@iBina48), FB posts and HIRL at various confabs, plus the movie “2B” (http://www.2bmovie.com/).

Cost

There is no charge for participation in the LifeNaut Project’s Biofile program. We suggest a donation amount of $399 because our estimated costs of vitrifying and storing your cells are about $399 per participant.  We realize people have different financial abilities, so smaller donations are also most welcome.  Whatever you can afford.  People who can afford to make a larger donation should do so because this helps to cover the biofile costs of those with much less money. We also encourage your donation to be made in automatic monthly amounts. Our sponsor the Terasem Movement Foundation Inc. is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization which can receive tax deductible donations and will send you a receipt for your tax records.

FAQ

  • We will send you a LifeNaut Bio File™Certificate of Storage once your sample has  successfully been vitrified and and brought down to temperature.  This includes:

    1. data that verifies that your cells were determined to be alive; and
    2. the freeze curve for your samples that documents that your cells were brought down to storage temperature using the safest, state of the art technology.
  • Our crytostorage facility is monitored by 2 completely unique 24/7 surveillance systems that will alert Bio File™ personnel of any problems related to security and/ or temperature change.

  • Because we store cells in liquid nitrogen, our LifeNaut BioFile™ System is not dependent upon electrical power to keep the cells frozen. In addition, our storage facility features backup power in the form of battery banks.

  • At LifeNaut Bio File™, your personal privacy is important. We recognize you may  have an interest in how we collect, retain, and use the information about you.  For further information, please refer to our Privacy Policy.

  • 1.  Sign up to donate to the BioFile Project
    2.  LifeNaut Bio File™ sends you a mouthwash cell collection kit
    3.  You send your sample to LifeNaut Bio File™
    4.  LifeNaut Bio File™confidentially identifies the sample, then vitrifies & cryogenically stores live cells
    5.  LifeNaut sends you a Bio File™Certificate of Storage including a copy of  your sample’s freeze curve, which confirms safe storage of your live cells.
    6.  Upon your request or based upon your wishes in the signup form, your cells will be released free of charge to a whole body regeneration laboratory when that  technology becomes available.

  • Vitrification is the transformation of a substance into the form of “glass” (as opposed to ice). By using a special cryoprotectant, Cryostor™, we are able to prevent damage to cells due to ice formation.  Instead of forming ice crystals that can pierce the delicate membranes and organelles inside your cells killing them, the Cryostor™, basically allows cells to be frozen exactly as they were before freezing, alive, yet with their biological clocks stopped.

  • Yes, the LifeNaut Bio File™ service is a part of the larger LifeNaut Project, which is a research experiment designed to investigate whether or not these 2 hypotheses could become a reality someday: 1. Given a comprehensive database saturated with the most important aspects of an individual’s personality, future intelligent software will be able to replicate this individual’s consciousness; and 2. These reanimated personalities will be able to be imported into biological, nanotechnological, and/ or robotic bodies.
