Future Generations

Our Future in the Cosmos



Throughout the history of humanity, we have been extending our range until it is now planet-wide, covering all parts of Earth's surface and reaching to the bottom of the ocean, to the top of the atmosphere, and beyond it to the Moon. We will flourish only as long as we continue to extend that range, and although the potential range is not infinite, it is incredibly vast even by present standards. We will eventually extend our range to cover the whole of the solar system, and then we will head outward to the stars.

The Gemstone File

A Skeleton Key to the Gemstone File...



The Gemstone File is a phrase which originated in March 1975. It is part of the title of a document entitled A Skeleton Key to the Gemstone File. This 23-page outline was written by Stephanie Caruana, a
California journalist, and was circulated free. It was circulated worldwide over the next two decades, as it presented a brief, undocumented explanation of worldwide events. In particular, this document named three individuals as the shooters of President John F. Kennedy, and suggested connections between a number of political assassinations which occurred within a relatively short time frame.
