Transhumanist Peter Thiel Is Planning Cryopreservation After Death

Please Share This Story!
Peter Thiel is a hardcore Transhumanist who has invested millions in life-extension technologies. To cover all the bases, he now plans to have his head frozen, post-death,  to -321 degrees Fahrenheit in hopes that he might be unfrozen at a later date to have his brain/soul downloaded into a computer to achieve immortality. ⁃ TN Editor

Billionaire tech investor Peter Thiel told independent journalist Bari Weiss on her podcast, “Honestly with Bari Weiss,” that when death comes knocking on his door, he has opted to be cryogenically frozen, even though he isn’t entirely sure if the technology will revive him at a future date.

Weiss asked Thiel:

“Is it true that you’re signed up to be cryonically preserved when you die so that you might be brought back to life in the future?”

The billionaire, who ranks 271 on the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, with a net worth of $8.1 billion, responded:

“Yes… But I think of it more as an ideological statement.”

“I don’t necessarily expect it to work, but I think it’s the sort of thing we’re supposed to try to do,” Thiel continued.

Weiss then asked Thiel if he made plans for his loved ones to be frozen too. That’s when he stated he was “not convinced” the technology works as intended (yet).

“It’s more, I think we need to be trying things. It’s not there yet,” he said 

Thiel’s interest in anti-aging technologies is part of a race among other billionaires fascinated with living forever. He told The Telegraph in a 2014 interview that he is signed up to be frozen by biotech firm Alcor.

“In telling you that I’ve signed up for it [cryogenics], there’s always this reaction that it’s really crazy, it’s disturbing. But my take on it is it’s only disturbing because it challenges our complacency.”

In 2006, Thiel pledged $3.5 million in funding for Alcor to complete scientific research into the alleviation and eventual reversal of the debilities caused by aging.

Thiel has expressed his concern that the human race is distracted by conflicts and cultural matters while it should focus on other issues like curing cancer

“I keep thinking that I’m not doing enough on biotech and radical life extension or even just trying to invest in curing a lot of these very big chronic diseases that we have,” he told Weiss.

Thiel joins a list of billionaires who also want to be cryogenically preserved. Some have already had their bodies frozen at temperatures of -321°F in the hope of being revived centuries later when medical science has advanced enough to treat the cause of their death.

Thiel is as ignorant as they come.


…isn’t this variation taking the idea of frozen assets to a new dimension?!…

This Tiel guy even leans towards it not working but blows millions on it anyway,
Zero logic !
IF it was possible All sorts of Organs would be Frozen from donors to be ready for Recipients in the near future.

Plus once ya die that’s it the Soul Moves On,
It doesn’t stay stuck in your head , mind or body.

How come this guy doesn’t notice the connection of cancer and vaccines , and GMO foods, and Chemtrails ????


ROFL!!!! I’m still LOL from the headline. Go for it, Thiel, you idiot.


At the moment of death Peter Thiel’s soul will leave his body. Trying to download his soul from his thawed brain will fail because his soul will be absent.

S. Abraham

The soul cannot be downloaded to a computer, probably the memory in the brain may be downloaded. However, without the soul the memory cannot do anything on its own and hence there is no further life or immortality. Probably they may design a robot with the memory of the dead person and deceive themselves and others that the dead person is now alive and immortal, of course with the help of electricity to run the robot! All must die and all must be resurrected to face judgement from God. However, God has promised immortality to all those who believe in… Read more »
