Artificial life: The coming evolution
Within fifty to a hundred years a new class of organisms is likely to emerge. These organisms will be artificial in the sense that they will originally be designed by humans. However, they will reproduce, and will evolve into something other than their initial form; they will be alive'' under any reasonable definition of the word. These organisms will evolve in a fundamentally different manner than contemporary biological organisms, since their reproduction will be under at least partial conscious control, giving it a Lamarckian component. The pace of evolutionary change consequently will be extremely rapid. The advent of artificial life will be the most significant historical event since the emergence of human beings. The impact on humanity and the biosphere could be enormous, larger than the industrial revolution, nuclear weapons, or environmental pollution. We must take steps now to shape the emergence of artificial organisms; they have potential to be either the ugliest terrestrial disaster, or the most beautiful creation of humanity. 22 refs., 3 figs.

Why the Archive is Building an 'Internet Library'
Libraries exist to preserve society's cultural artifacts and to provide access to them. If libraries are to continue to foster education and scholarship in this era of digital technology, it's essential for them to extend those functions into the digital world.
Many early movies were recycled to recover the silver in the film. The Library of Alexandria - an ancient center of learning containing a copy of every book in the world - was eventually burned to the ground. Even now, at the turn of the 21st century, no comprehensive archives of television or radio programs exist.
But without cultural artifacts, civilization has no memory and no mechanism to learn from its successes and failures. And paradoxically, with the explosion of the Internet, we live in what Danny Hillis has referred to as our "digital dark age."
The Internet Archive is working to prevent the Internet - a new medium with major historical significance - and other "born-digital" materials from disappearing into the past. Collaborating with institutions including the Library of Congress and the Smithsonian, we are working to preserve a record for generations to come. Open and free access to literature and other writings has long been considered essential to education and to the maintenance of an open society. Public and philanthropic enterprises have supported it through the ages.

From Africa to the stars
The thesis is developed that our evolutionary future, like our past, is tied to our penchant for exploration and migration. The main stages of human exploration and migration are examined, with the evolutionary implications of each, starting from the time our distant ancestors first stood upright and continuing into the coming era of space expansion.
This article stunned me!
What I found especially interesting was the end.
It suggest Mankind should genetically manipulate our Evolutionary Path in order to Expand throughout the solar system(or as far allowed by extraterrestrial life, yes it says that.).
Simply stunning....edit on 5/2/11 by masqua because: (no reason given)

Central Intelligence Agency (CU). The Committee is
seeking information on the relation between early ethics policies in DOD, HHS, and AEC, and
experiments conducted by the CIA. In the 1970s, public and congressional attention focused on
MKULTRA, and other programs of CIA experiments on mind control (most famously involving
'___'), at least some of which involved unknowing subjects, including members of the public.
Documents show that CIA officials who were involved in the predecessors to MKULTRA also
were members of the DOD Committee on Medical Science and probable participants in the DOD
Joint Panel on the Medical Aspects of Atomic Warfare, groups at which human experimentation
planning and policy, among other items, were discussed.
Beginning in the early 1950s, CIA engaged in an extensive program of human
experimentation, using drugs, psychological, and other means in search of techniques to control
human behavior. CIA has so far found no evidence that radiation experiments on humans were
part of this program. CIA documents and a 1963 CIA Inspector General (IG) report, however,
state quite clearly that MKULTRA was a program "concerned with research and development of
chemical, biological, and radiological materials capable of employment in clandestine operations
to control human behavior." (emphasis added) The IG report states that "additional avenues to
the control of human behavior had been designated . . . as appropriate to investigation under the
MKULTRA charter, including radiation, electroshock, various fields of psychology, sociology,
and anthropology, graphology, harassment substances, and paramilitary devices and materials."
(emphasis added)2 The program included unwitting experimentation on humans with '___'
(lysergic acid diethylamide), brainwashing, and other interrogation methods.
CIA's human behavior program originated in 1950 and was motivated by Soviet, Chinese,
and North Korean use of mind control techniques. It began under the code name BLUEBIRD
(and was later known as ARTICHOKE) and was operated by the Office of Security and OS1 with
support from other offices. MKULTRA formally began in April 1953 as a special, clandestine
funding mechanism for DOD human behavior research. The program was the subject of
investigations by the Rockefeller Commission in 1975, the Senate Church Committee in 1976,
and hearings by Senator Kennedy in 1975 and 1977; however, these committees did not focus on
radiation experiments, and no such information was found by them.

I noticed you came on to ATS the same time I did. I have already done enough threads and if you have you 25 posts done, Please start a thread on this about the Tritium 9/11 evidence. If it hasn't been on the 9/11 site please start one. I have tried to keep up with anything about 9/11 so this is some very important info. We also need to give kudoos to the OP for all the treads that will come out because of this thread. Thanks
