Organ doner for sure, but id like to dedicate my entire body for science. If they won't take it then i guess I'd like to be taken to the north pole and buried in snow so that my body never decays and archaeologists can find it in the future

Contradiction: Archaeologist implies long time in the future. Snow in the North pole implies in the next 20 years or so, when there will be no snow/ice in the North pole in summer. I'd say a bog, but I guess we'll burn all the peat once the coal is gone. "It's kind of scary when you think the whole thing through"

As someone who has known a lung transplant recipient, I'd be honored to be harvested as much as possible, but then I'd want to be cremated. Not sure about my ashes.

Why would I care? I'd be dead, for chrissake!

 

If you really, really want to do somebody some dirt, mix their ashes into some porcelain that's used to make a toilet. Then people can literally piss and shit on them.

Others are talking about donating their bodies so someone else could live, and you're talking about doing someone some dirt.  Wow.

I'll be cremated. I don't really care where my ashes go.

Since I'm an organ donor, I'd like people to take what they can from my body first of all. After that, I much rather be buried in a pine box and have my body go back to the Earth and feed the trees and other plant life. I feel like since the Earth has provided so much for me, it would be the least I could do to give back.

It’s a bit of a long shot, but a deep space burial would be amazing.

Dig a hole, strike a match, preserve it in extremes of physical space, what is  it compared with being alive beyond that in someone's memory?

I would rather experience deep space when I am alive to enjoy it.

I would like to be buried. I would want to be buried so that I could become a part of the Earth and so that any loved ones I have or might have would be able to visit my grave and converse with my spirit. As odd as it sounds, I believe that the physical body dies, but the spirit can somehow live on. I feel that my spirit would only be able to live on if my remains existed and became a part of the Earth. Another thing I can say is that I would like either to be buried in a bed of flowers or underneath a tree (preferably a cherry blossom tree or something else).

I'm already registered as an organ donor so hopefully my corpse can be of use to someone who needs it... the rest? I really like the idea of  alkaline hydrolysis/water cremation because ti's pretty eco friendly and also I just don't like the idea of rotting in the ground naturally (probably an irrational fear of being a zombie? who can say). Then my neutralised corpse juices can fertilise a plant or something that'd be pretty neat

Trust someone in our overdeveloped society to take something as simple as growing a tree on some ashes into a product. Complete with greenwash stylisation. Just dig a small hole, fill with ashes*, put soil back on top, add an apple pip (or whatever you want).

 

*personally, I'd much rather not be cremated, because that's done with fossil fuel

I would donate my organs and the rest to be donated to science.
