I have always imagined that our DNA stores the history of mankind within it. Perhaps we should be looking into decoding our own DNA to find the story of our past?

Sorry to have to say this but why is OP getting all the credit for this article, when I posted the same or very similar article several days earlier? He even has similar thoughts to me.

By the way this is not a case of sour grapes, but the article is a bit similar to mine don't you think.

Hey Slayer.
Stop hogging all the damn stars!!!

Anyhow, another great thread. Right, dna computing is not new, but glad to see they are doing some furthering of it now.
We become our own computer. no need for hard drives, just put your hand over a scanner and voila, all your important files and identification is quite literally coded into you.

This is sci-fi that we haven't even really considered yet (eat your heart out star trek) that may be employed over the next 20. the possibilities are significant, and a bit steampunk in its creative speculation (my pet cat is also my icat computer.).

Anyhow, this eventually makes way towards organic computing..which if we want to go into the alien thing, is arguably what the greys are, machines...

I had the same very thought as you leolady. The crystal skulls. In my mind, they can't possibly just be art. That just seems to simple in my mind. I don't think we can possibly imagine what information, if any at all, are stored in those, but i'm sure many other people feel the same way as I do. There is a much bigger purpose for those crystal skulls, rather than just some sort of art.

Another weird thought.....

What if "Whomever" stored a piece of the grander puzzle in all the different "Supposed races" scattered about the planet in pre-history and it isn't until we all come together genetically as one species that we'll finally be able to combine all the fragments and unlock some sort of message?

I know, I know.

Need more coffee.....

In the book Supernatural, by Graham Hancock, there is a chapter devoted to this very topic that I though quite fascinating! In his book he presents some evidence that reveals there is a linguistic structure in "junk DNA".

Another interesting tidbit. Sir Francis Crick, who won a Nobel Prize for his discovery of the double helix, later admitted he was under the influence of lsd when he first deduced the structure - he said it helped open his mind to new ideas..

Crick also couldn't understand how the intricate design of the double helix simply assembled itself from the collision with other molecules in the primeval soup. He said that was about as likely as a Boeing 767 being assembled by a hurricane in a junk yard - fascinating!

I was just about to post this. - Great book right?
I found that chapter so fascinating, the fact that DNA obeys zipf's law; applicable to every, yes EVERY language on earth is very strange indeed.'s_law

Seeing the headline to this thread almost made me spit my coffee all over my laptop, as it kinda proves that yes, our DNA is probably holding a "message" if only we could crack the code!

seems to be definatley the future of data storage...image how much storage a simple orange would have
keep yer apples I want a basket of fruit for my hard drives lol. Although does make me wonder what could feasibly cause damage to DNA, obviosly cros conamination isnt possible (although lets hope not as I dont really want to be 'infected' by the encyclopedia britannica lol.)

Awesome post. Absolutely amazing. Science is awe inspiring.

To answer your questions

A.) If there are Extra Terrestrials could this mean we aren't the first species to think of this?

Why not? I just answered a question with a question. =) I mean, of course the possibility is there. It is quite possible that an advanced alien civilization is out there. It is also possible that an advanced alien civilization has thought of this and so much more.

B.) Maybe we should start some heavy in-depth research into what the hell exactly is all that Junk DNA is that we've been carrying around all this time?

There are scientists doing research in this area, non-coding DNA.


Here are a couple more articles that I think are interesting.

The evolution of noncoding DNA

This is just the abstract. This article can be viewed for free at a college library.

Mysterious Noncoding DNA

Very exciting.

If I may, check out the link below...

Genesis 11:1-9

I believe your theory holds much water, my friend...

Especially this bit...

5 But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower the people were building. 6 The Lord said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. 7 Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.”

"... then NOTHING they plan to do will be impossible for them."

Emphasis mine.

I'm already half way done with a "Skunk works" thread on this very topic and it's possible ramifications

Stay tuned....

Wetware. I like that term!

And I agree with you, we will start to see heavy implimentation of biotechnology within human beings.

It will be heavily resisted at first... ie, Mark of the Beast, etc. But I think our true future lies within ourselves if we have the courage to actually track it down.

Next they'll be taking audio data, visual data, and sensory data and converting it to binary, resulting in almost a complete memory embedded in DNA. Could this possibly lead to replacing memories by injection? Injecting DNA until the fabricated information changes what you remember?

One step closer to being gods. And as I always say: the day we become gods is the day we decide we no longer need a god. The day we decide we no longer need a god, is the day we forget "God". The day we forget "God" is the day we complete the transformation from man at heart to beast at heart. And that is the day we have truly fallen.

You may say divinity has no part in this, but think: we have mastered chemical engineering to the point that we can invoke death or restore life. We can control the weather, and we've seen into the vast reaches of the cosmos. And now, we're rebuilding the GENETIC CODE to suit our purposes. If that isn't godly power, I don't know what is.

The weight of the DNA storage could be further reduced with a more efficient translation system than binary.

Each code in DNA is a combination of two out of four base pairs, sixteen possibitlies for each code.

Quantum computing is said to have the potential to expand on the standard binary format used in current computing

you guy's remember in the movie "The Matrix" while the people where in the matrix and their physical bodies where still in the ship and they needed to possess the knowledge to be able to perform a task? i think one example was to know how to fly a helicopter but yeah this makes me think it could very well be the first step and the infancy of that premise. think about it.

We need to decode the junk dna and see if its artificially produced data. We need to do it ourselves, tptb will never tell the truth. Where can i get started.

This would make porno take a lot less space by the way

Not everyone is incapable of living a moral life without a fake god to damn them to hell fpr otherwise. Some pepple are good people because its the right thing. myself, for example

Please take a look at said article, and note date posted......
