So I’ve developed an awesome super power… I can choose a length of time, and then enter suspended animation for that long. So I can say “100 years”, and then presto, it’s 100 years later (from my perspective).
So I have located an extremely seismically stable salt mine which geologists assure me will remain untouched for billions of years. I have constructed a chamber there. And I have decided to go into the future.
Trouble is… suspended animation makes me hungry and thirsty. So within a half hour or so of leaving suspended animation, I’ll need to eat a full meal’s worth of calories and drink a few cups of water.
Question is… what method of preserving quickly-edible food (and water) will let me travel furthest into the future?
(1) Please don’t fight the hypothetical. I can’t insert pouches of food inside my skin or anything of that sort
(2) Assume that when I emerge I will somehow be able to breathe and see and move around and not be atrophied and the chamber will be in good shape and so forth
(3) I presumably don’t have any way to keep, say, a freezer running for any unusual length of time. Although I’m curious how long frozen food would actually last, so I won’t object if the discussion wanders in that direction.
