This is all well and good, except that I applied for a patent for this basic technique back in about 2001 (would have to pull out app to get exact
date). It was shortly after the human genome was initially published. At any rate, the info became public domain as prior art. Anyway, the idea was
to search for "canonical" formats in the inert portions of the genome, looking for an unnaturally-occurring pattern, using visualization
For example, a square or spiral circle, with black-and-white rather than colors, are examples of “canonical formats” one might find _visual data_,
or unnatural patterns. Imagine converting an inert region of Base-4 DNA into a spiral representation, and having an image that contains _lines_ and
_symbols_ greet you. Clearly, such would be unnatural and instead of design. Such search efforts require supercomputing resources, for all the
myriad of candidate patterns and formats.
This is indeed an excellent area for SETI research, as they have the computing resources, and I am happy that its profile as a concept has been
Actually, let me give you a complete _published_ citation. See my book, "Scout Report Volume 1: The Rise of the Black Wolf." Specifically, look in
"Chapter 3: Flying Machines." The entire section, "Circa 19035.644.52: The Search for Alien Life I," is about this concept, and mentions the
prior patent application.
