Right now, we record lifespans like this: for instance, Jiroemon Kimura's lifespan would be written as (April 19, 1897 - June 12, 2013).

 

http://en.wikipedia....Jiroemon_Kimura

 

However, if/once people who are cryogenically preserved will get revived, how will we write their lifespans? For instance, if I get lucky with my lifespan but anti-aging technology is developed at a slower rate than some people here expect it to, would my lifespan be written as (July 1, 1992 - July 25, 2086, July 25, 2316 - present), if my death date would be July 25, 2086 and my revival date would be July 25, 2316, and the present would be the year 2317 or beyond?

 

Also, I sincerely apologize if this is a stupid question, but I am indeed very curious about this.

There's no such thing as a stupid question, just an easy one we all know :cool: . For the question, that's plausible. I mean the way things are written can always get changed.

One idea I had was we would have a birth date, death date, and a revival date. So I could say I was born May 2nd, 1999, died October 30th 2094, and was revived January 23rd 2302

It would suck to die on October 30th, 2094, just before the 2094 midterm elections here in the U.S. :( Will your heartbeat condition allow you to reach age 95? I seriously hope that it will, considering how incredibly intelligent and talented you are. :)

Yep, that would be his official lifespan. However, if he was born on March 19, 1897 rather than April 19 (as his family claims), his lifespan would be written like this: (March 19, 1897 – June 12, 2013).

I think your idea is about right, to be honest. Birth date, death date, revival date.
