Painted human mandibles that may have been worn like necklace pendants have been discovered at a ceremonial site in Mexico that dates back around 1,300 years. In the same ceremonial area, numerous whistles and figurines were also discovered. Made out of ceramic, these objects had been smashed into thousands of fragments, not a single example found intact.

At the present rate of development of new innovations in human life extension, as well as that of anti-aging therapies, many are saying that the human lifespan may be greatly extended in the coming decades. Although the present state of such technologies is focused primarily on warding off the negative effects of aging in therapeutic ways, the end result may be something once relegated to science fiction. Immortality, in the literal sense.

The origin of life on Earth has been a matter of intense debate throughout human history. Even today, scientists don't know whether the molecular building blocks of life were created on Earth or whether they were brought here by comets and meteorites. This is obviously hugely important – if they were delivered to Earth then it seems plausible that they may have been transported to other planets, too.

Today we face the possibility of babies getting organs grown in human/nonhuman chimeras-- beasts that are pigs except for a single human organ. To the uninitiated, this may sound more like the dark arts than modern medicine, but pursuing careful research and potential clinical use of these chimeras is both proper and important.

In the universe, there has been no incidence of present and future at all at any site of space, all are submerged into their respective depths of the past. In or under the circumstances : In the evolution- The Universe as I see its- near about 14 billion years past location is dark energy or event horizon yet from that location- just at this time it is again- event horizon is on this place. Both locations are same i.e. event horizon or dark energy is omnivorous. Our universe age is 14 billion years yet that the case in our lifetime. That is to say; By the Big Bang and Evolution, Big/huge universe for our lifetime i.e. Space Time Physics for lifetime and lifeless position is in the dark energy or event horizon. Astrobiology, Astronomy, Astrophysics, Cosmology or History of the universe is early i.e. early universe. The most important tale is that- it is possible to feel or assess it through the depth of our brain and nothing else i.e. no other means...

In the summer of 2013, Steven Pinker, the chaired Harvard professor of psycholinguistics and bestselling author of popular psychology, engaged in a heated debate in the pages of The New Republic with its literary editor at the time, Leon Wieseltier. The debate took place in three hefty articles, starting with Pinker’s shot across the bow, “Science Is Not Your Enemy”, then Wieseltier’s rebuttal, “Crimes Against Humanities”, and finally, yet inconclusively, a lightning round, “Science vs. the Humanities, Round III”.

A recent genetic counseling session reminded me of a chromosomal quirk that flies completely under the radar of genome sequencing, yet if it were to turn up in two copies in a bunch of people who have children together, could theoretically seed a second human species, one characterized by a chromosome number of 44, not 46.
