Writer's Block: Forever young

If cryogenics became a real, affordable option (i.e., if you could freeze your body until aging and illnesses were better understood), would you consider it? If so, do you fear you'd miss out on the wisdom that comes with growing old and dying?

I don't usually do these silly writers block questions but this one piqued my interest. I don't believe that there is any wisdom in mere aging and certainly not too much at all in dying. Wisdom is a function of time, experience, and character.

Cryogenics is quite possibly a viable technology, and certainly not unaffordable, and I am seriously considering it.
