Bringing Together Science and Society: A Proposal for a Biohistory
This report describes a concrete plan for integrating scientific knowledge within society, by actively involving the general public in scientific research and planning and forging a relationship between humanity, science and nature. This will encourage both participation in and understanding of the technological revolution that has changed the lives of everyone on this planet, and an appreciation for both the dangers and the beauty of science. This beauty has been captured in a new science, "Biohistory", which aims to view humans and nature through their genetic molecules, and which enables researchers to paint both the history of evolutionary relationships and to sketch the future potential. As the centerpiece of the plan, the Biohistory Research Hall will serve numerous functions: as a forum where the public can join researchers; as a gathering place where every person, including artists, business people, policy makers, etc., can discuss science and philosophy of life; as a central organization for expanding networks of interested people from every walk of life; and as a learning setting for children and older students.
