BioTime's secret is dumbfoundingly
obvious: antifreeze. The company's flagship product, Hextend, is an FDA-approved
blood-volume expander designed to maintain blood pressure and chemistry in the
wake of massive blood loss. It's used for this purpose in surgical wards
throughout the US and Canada, but the product has an additional property: It
doesn't coagulate at low temperature. Since 1992, BioTime has been testing
Hextend in baboons, pigs, and dogs, replacing their entire blood supply and then
cooling them to 35 degrees. At that point, vital signs cease. Bleeding virtually
stops. Oxygen-hungry tissues go on a diet. Then technicians raise the body
temperature, reintroduce the blood, and shock the heart to life.

animals back from two hours of absolute clinical death," says Hal
Sternberg, BioTime's VP of research. "No pulse, no respiration, no

You'll want to use the 'Remember'

When you're at a place you want to remember: press -teleport -remember.

coordinates, and add my own description on the end.
You can use teleport by entering

Here's a list of some of my favorite
spots so far (just copy & paste into the teleport dialog box...):
America 56N 10E
America 56N 9E, rocks and black pyramid view-2!
America 66N 17E, Black pyramid, inside!
America 102N 14E, cool setting
America 111N 1E, floating skydock!
AWSchool 1S 13E, tourist worlds
- Lensman's 6S 0W, info arena (this one

LONDON (UPI) - Scientists in
Wales said they discovered what may be a tiny form of primitive alien life that
a passing comet may have dropped into Earth's atmosphere, London's Daily Mail
newspaper reported Wednesday.
Thursday, Nov. 23, 2000
Researchers said that in
the filter of a high-flying balloon operated by the Indian Space Research
Organization, they found a strain of bacteria unlike anything on Earth. The
bacteria were found at an altitude of 10 miles. Scientists from the ISRO,
Cardiff University and the University of Wales College of Medicine said it may
have come from a comet on a close approach to earth, according to the Daily
Wickramasinghe, who is based at Cardiff University, said the discovery marked
"the first time we have had direct evidence for the hypothesis that comets
seed life on other planets."
astronomer Fred Hoyle suggested the theory of "panspermia" more than
two decades ago, that the seeds of life, either DNA or microbes, could be
carried by asteroids or comets and dropped off on planets such as Earth to
