Steve Aoki Hopes to Live Forever by Freezing His Body

Steve Aoki wants to live to forever, and he thinks he’s found a way to do it: freezing his body until the time is right to come back to life. “There’s a potential where if my brain gets to a certain temperature to where it was frozen, it’s almost very similar technically as if I was for three minutes,” Aoki, 43, tells journalist Graham Bensinger on In Depth with Graham Bensinger in a YouTube interview on Wednesday.

Impacted by his father, Rocky Aoki’s, death from liver cancer in 2008, Steve reveals that he struggled with the processing death. “My mind couldn’t actually believe that he would actually [die],” Aoki said. After, he shared that he became highly interested in learning more about cancer and cancer prevention and started reading more on the topic.

Citing Elon Musk as inspiration, Aoki believes that some science fiction is slowly becoming more factual, including cryopreservation of the body and brain. “My passion is in what’s in the future with brain technology,” he told Bensinger. “The end goal is finding a way to live forever.”

Aoki admitted to Bensinger that it may seem like a far out concept, but “It’s not scary and crazy when you really start inching [toward] what that looks like,” he said. In terms of his 78 year-old mother, Aoki shared that he wants “to see her live to 120.”

Shouting out the Alcor Life Extension Foundation, Aoki endorsed the company’s plan to extend human life using “deep deep deep deep cold Kelvin temperature” to the point of “zero degeneration.”

“If I’m so lucky to die in a hospital situation where they can move my whole body and quickly get my body, my brain most importantly, into this deep Kelvin temperature,” Aoki starts, “If there’s technology that can bring me back, then I can come back.” His biggest worry? His family not being around when he returns, which he shared hopes of convincing them to try it too.

This wouldn’t be the first time a celebrity has shared interest in cryonics. Paypal founder and billionaire Peter Thiel was reported to have pledged millions of dollars to the cause.

“These are all steps to what I believe the future will eventually get to the point where we might potentially live forever,” Aoki said.
