"YOU can take a live fish and with proper precautions, freeze it and keep it frozen without injuring it. Exactly how long it can be kept in this condition, no one knows. Inasmuch as in the frozen state the fish does not consume any energy, it is believed that it could be kept so for decades and perhaps much longer, and still revive at the end of that period.

It is also well-known that certain animals hibernate for many months at a time without freezing and yet emerge into the world and go on living very nicely. Suspended animation, then, is not fiction, but actual fact. There is no good reason why parts of the human being or even the human machine as a whole could not be kept alive for years without deteriorating, providing the method used is correct.


(From The Ancient Brain, 1929)

The present story is exceptional and expresses this thought in a most novel manner. There is no reason why, sometime in the future, Mr. Stanglandís idea will not be realized, at least in part. "
