The Natural World and discoveriesEdit

I am grateful to be still alive and see this discovery, because in the future with faster models necessary to retain information that may take 1,000's of years, we can experience now because life as humanly as we know it, does not last actually a long time, so retrieving information, data in faster ways and models assists the human being with accessing information faster and therby may assist in other discoveries for helping our world in all fields of research.

Good going GIMPS!
