In January 2000, I was invited to give a weekend workshop on global trends in biotechnology to a small group of Senior executives in Sweden. In that workshop I met Rusty Schweikert, an Apollo 9 astronaut with a strong interest in the origins of life in space. He and I collaborated on an idea I had been considering prior to the workshop, that there may be hidden patterns in our genomic DNA sequences that do not code for conventional genes, but rather, represent the linguistic fragments of the DNA of earlier or parallel life forms. This white paper describes in more detail the concept, whose execution would be very cost-effective and rapid.
