Murmurs of Earth - The Blueprint of Mankind

The mystery remains, the cosmos is a gateway if we allow ourselves to think the possible, I say this for future generations solely in awe of life...

The Voyager space craft's Golden Record

This diagram is the given instructions to operate a disk called the Voyager Golden Record which was launched with the Voyager spacecraft in 1977. It contains visuals and sounds to portray the types of life and culture on Earth. Such a device would probably be laugh at or destroyed if it was found in hands of other life more or less intelligent then ourselves. As with the cave painting discoveries in France, the pictogram is an example that art or the act of drawing geometric symbols is the key to all life, etched here on this golden disk. The statement below was part of the intergalactic journey of
the American Voyager spacecraft.

If one such civilization intercepts Voyager and can understand these recorded content, here is our message: This is a present from a small distant world, a token of our sounds, our science, our images, our music, our thoughts and feelings. We are attempting to survive time so we me live into yours. We hope someday to solve the problems we face to join a community of galactic civilization. The record represents our hope and our determination, and our good will in a vast and awesome universe. - Jimmy Carter, June, 1976

As you shook it to see what it was, the motion would generate power and trigger on a holographic image. The audio should be samples be our heart beat, nevertheless the following montage is an example of what we look like to the outside world. Who knows, the aliens we are in search of may derive from ourself millions of light years ahead. The universal elements of life; Magnetics, electricity, fibonacci spiral, light, magenta, cyan and yellow.

In a dream, I remember seeing the vision of the statue of David as an epoch to the end of the World. Somehow the Sun had died and this was a reminder that only art survives the test of time.

A montage of the pinnacle individuals that left their mark in history on this planet, earth. We will be remembered in a vast universe that we accounted for something, fractions of light if so be......We have already passed
