SOCORRO, N.M. (PRWEB) August 01, 2017
After numerous years administering aid projects in Asia and then conducting research in the neurosciences, R. Robert Holson, Ph.D. unveils in his book "THE UPLIFT PROJECT" (published by Xlibris) a proposal for a breathtaking thousand-year project for the increase of longevity and intelligence in humans, select animal species (including dogs, dolphins, chimps and Asian elephants) and computers.
An excerpt from "THE UPLIFT PROJECT" reads:
Humanity has quite unintentionally achieved a high level of intelligence, linked to spoken language. This intellect has given us mastery of the planet but seems inadequate to prevent overpopulation, resource depletion, global warming, and perhaps even extinction.
