If we predict that in another 2010 years, human may be extinct, we might be governed by a new specie. Therefore, undoubtedly our culture, teachings and bibles would probably perished together with our consciousness.
Now, suppose our government decided to build a time capsule to inform OR to remind (if only human still roaming) all the past that may have been forgotten. You're invited to build such capsule, how would you answer the following questions..
[Let's us put all scientists and humanists into one project]
For Sciences - How to build it.
1.)What material would you use to build this time capsule?
2.)How would you preserve the item what will be inside that time capsule?
3.)How would you present the time capsule to the future entity? considering they might not speak English.
4.)Which location would you put this time capsule? Taking into considerating of earthquakes, tsunamis or 2012 event.
For Humanities - What to put inside it.
1.)Should we exclude terrible history event like Holocaust, so the future entity wouldn't repeat that epoch again...or should we do otherwise to teach the future entity what is unethical.
2.)Whose magnum opus should we include in Time Capsule? Why?
3.)Should we include famous painting? Why?
4.)If we were to put songs inside, which 10 songs do you think is the best to represent our current era?
5.)What kind of everyday 'items' would you include in? Why?
For Multitude - What should we name this time capsule?
