Death of Robert Ettinger

Cryonics pioneer Robert C. Ettinger died recently and was duly frozen. His son said, "We were able to freeze him under optimum conditions."

Robert Anton Wilson wrote about his interest in cryonics and the immortality movement in Cosmic Trigger 1 and elsewhere. Can anyone explain why Wilson did not opt to have himself frozen when he died?

"Many are cold, but few are frozen." ?

I'm guessing it was financial; he was very short of funds towards the end, and was struggling to pay rent/medical expenses.

Thanks, Anon. Yes. RAW was deeply in debt when he reached equilibrium. That's probably why he didn't join Luna.
