This thread is meant to increase productivity and progress in Cryonics, by rewarding those who can present repeatable results that show at least a small improvement towards a simple house-hold challenge's goal.

 

The prize for a noticeable improvement is 200USD. Before you reveal, the money would be deposited to a trustful person. If an improvement made is found later to be a well known technique, then there is no prize.

 

 

 

CHALLENGE 1

Freeze non-pure water solid so that it is more glass-like than normally.

 

CHALLENGE 2

Freeze a fruit, vegetable, plant, or brain-like soup/dough/etc and show that it has healthier insides than normally.

 

Try these ideas, and let us know what you tried and how it went:

Freeze a big, medium, or small:
Ice-cube/other. Or, a horizontal or vertical thick/skinny rectangle/triangle/etc.
With/without a vibrator attached to it, a centrifuge/motor to spin it, or a strong magnetic/electro-magnet attached to one side only to see effect.

Here I tried some very simple experiments. I froze them for 4 hours. It seems that the thinner ice-cube in height had less frost inside than the big one I froze with it. Also the apple and banana that was covered in tin-foil was easier to cut and healthier but likely simply warmer.

Don't act like we didn't see that chopped off hand in your fridge.

I did more tests, and found that a thin piece of aluminum foil standing up on a plate covered in aluminum foil with water on it frozen for hours voids ice crystals around the paper thin foil.

 

A magnet also worked. Even an eraser. The water around them had barely any ice crystals, yet the rest of the water was even super white in a lot of areas full of ice crystals.

 

Why is this?

 

The next step would be to take a piece of meat made of cells, and pierce through it up to a hundred needles to void crystallization.

There's 5 parts / videos I took. I also did some further testing with thin tall skinny aluminum pieces glued to the plate that I didn't film. Here you can see the effect happen in the videos.

 

I had the first plate in the freezer for 6 hours (the video that shows 12 midnight is the last video featuring the first plate). Note that Part 4 is also this "last video".

 

You can see in Part 4 at 0:27 the discovery. There is no white / ice crystals around the objects!

 

Also see Part 5 at 0:38.

Here is parts 6, 7, and 8. I got the water around the needles to be clear now. Also the ice glaciers in the grey plastic lid formed as individual pieces and so there is clear lines going throughout the ice structure as well.

 

I'm not sure if this is voiding ice crystal formation anywhere however. I searched Google a bit and read that there is bubbles/minerals pushed towards the center as it freezes, hence the surface (which includes the water around objects like the eraser/needles) is clear. But am left wondering if ALL the water turns into these bad "ice crystals" because of the molecular structure re-arranging.

 

 

 

 

I tried some experiments with hotdogs nevertheless. I didn't see any results with the naked eye however.

 

By the way I found this video below and I wonder if lasers could be used to make sure freezing from the outside-in doesn't happen.

I remember reading an article about "instant 3D printing" too. This video is showing layer by layer resin solidification however.

Time for a new approach.

 

Humans are mostly made up out of water. One currently big problem with Cryonics is that the water in us clusters together, expands, and crushes/tears/pierces our cells.

 

You can find online videos showing super cooling water where the water is really cold but the H2O molecules haven't yet linked together and expanded, until the water bottle is hit, or cooled further.

 

Clearly we need the water to lose heat. However when it looses enough heat, the molecules link together and the water expands. But what if we add back other forms of energy? Like motion, or de-pressurization? I also believe heavy experimentation with electromagnets has great potential here.

 

I'll see what happens when I put water in my freezer and give it a shake every say 10 minutes. I'll also test attaching a vibrator to the container, possibly a centrifuge.
