During my anabiosis this morning I dreamt I was leaving work and reading.
John Hunter, supported by his experiments on _anabiosis_, hoped to prolong the life of man indefinitely by alternate freezing and thawing; and the Veronese Colonel Aless.
The main idea of the Anabiosis is not the focus on anabiosis itself, but rather journeys to a far away world, and meditation upon cosmic space ... and upon the earth itself from the point of view of the black abyss.
Therefore music about this subject is extremely eloquent: visions people sometimes get in anabiosis excite and carry them to the very edge of the universe, the place you have never planned to go to ... but will these visions return our consciousness back?

As the lakes freeze, only the smallest viruses stay in their liquid areas while bigger species fall into anabiosis in thick ice.
