I'm not disputing that lowering the temperature of a dead body won't slow down decomposition.<quoted text>
You stop just when you almost get to a point.
What if you cool the body down to zero?
200 below zero?
Near absolute zero?
What happens to the rate of decay then?
Then the only decay will be caused by radiation (energy). That would also warm the cadaver slightly, but that is not the point.
Don't be afraid to think things through.
The problem is that when a person dies of hypothermia, the result of lowered body temperature is immediate and dramaatic decomposition... that contradicts Polymath's interpretation of the SLoT equations.
