I think, I hope, I know where these people are going with this concept – sold, here, as reanimating the dead. Maybe it’s extended CPR for the brain. Dunno.

The first attempts to bring people back from the dead are slated to start this year.
Bioquark, a Philadelphia-based company, announced in late 2016 that they believe brain death is not ‘irreversible’.

And now, CEO Ira Pastor has revealed they will soon be testing an unprecedented stem cell method on patients in an unidentified country in Latin America, confirming the details in the next few months.

To be declared officially dead in the majority of countries, you have to experience complete and irreversible loss of brain function, or ‘brain death’.

According to Pastor, Bioquark has developed a series of injections that can reboot the brain – and they plan to try it out on humans this year.

They have no plans to test on animals first.

I read this article with The Ramones’ Pet Sematary playing in my head:

I don’t want to be buried in a Pet Sematary,
I don’t want to live my life again.
I don’t want to be buried in a Pet Sematary,
I don’t want to live my life again.

No idea what to think about this, really. I just don’t get a warm, re-animated feeling from it. It will probably be a good, logical next-step life-saving procedure. That, or fodder for a good sci-fi novel…
