Lightbulb Genome Monk

The storyline opens in Tibet in 1943, wherein one of its protagonists, a Tibetan monk, is informed that he has fulfilled the prophecies made of him - he has fought an army of enemies while a flock of cranes circled above; fought for love at the palace of Jade; saved brothers whom he did not know from a family he never had; and forsaken his name. He is then entrusted by his master with the protection of a Scroll which contains knowledge by which the reader becomes the most powerful of living things - a protection that will keep him youthful and immunize him to injury until, at the close of 60 years, he must pass the knowledge to an heir..

The English word jade (alternative spelling "jaid") is derived (via French l'ejade and Latin ilia) from the Spanish term piedra de ijada (first recorded in 1565) or "loin stone", from its reputed efficacy in curing ailments of the loins and kidneys. Nephrite is derived from lapis nephriticus, the Latin version of the Spanish piedra de ijada..Next to emery, jade was the hardest mineral known to ancient Mesoamerica..Many types of serpentine have been used for jewellery and hardstone carving, sometimes under the name false jade or Teton jade..Of the jade suits that have been found, the pieces of jade are mostly square or rectangular in shape, though triangular, trapezoid and rhomboid plaques have also been found...

Premiered USA 16 April 2003 - April 14 – The Human Genome Project is completed, with 99% of the human genome sequenced to 99.99% accuracy /16 - The Treaty of Accession is signed in Athens admitting 10 new member states to the European Union \ 23 - Beijing closes all schools for 2 weeks because of the SARS virus..The Human Genome Project (HGP) is an international scientific research project with the goal of determining the sequence of chemical base pairs which make up human DNA, and of identifying and mapping all of the genes of the human genome from both a physical and functional standpoint.. It remains the world's largest collaborative biological project..The human genome is the complete set of genetic information for humans (Homo sapiens).. This information is encoded as DNA sequences within the 23 chromosome pairs in cell nuclei and in a small DNA molecule found within individual mitochondria... and 93 other boys are exact genetic duplicates of him, bred entirely from his cells.. He allowed me to take half a liter of his blood and a cutting of skin from his ribs...
