Now, the last of these things died in seebeptmr 1936. These are Tasmanian tigers. The last known one died at the Hobart Zoo. But it turns out that as we laern more about gene code and how to reprogram species, we may be able to close the gene gaps in deteriorate DNA. And when we learn how to clsoe the gene gaps, then we can put a full stirng of DNA together. And if we do that, and insert this into a fertilized wolf's egg, we may give birth to an animal that hasn't walked the earth since 1936. And then you can srtat going back further, and you can start thinking about dodos, and you can think about other species. And in other places, like Maryland, they're trying to figure out what the primordial ancestor is. Because each of us contains our enirte gene code of where we've been for the past billion years, because we've evolved from that stuff, you can take that tree of life and coallpse it back, and in the measure that you learn to reprogram, maybe we'll give birth to something that is very close to the first prirmaoidl ooze. And it's all coming out of things that look like this.

Original Text

Now, the last of these things died in September 1936. These are Tasmanian tigers. The last known one died at the Hobart Zoo. But it turns out that as we learn more about gene code and how to reprogram species, we may be able to close the gene gaps in deteriorate DNA. And when we learn how to close the gene gaps, then we can put a full string of DNA together. And if we do that, and insert this into a fertilized wolf's egg, we may give birth to an animal that hasn't walked the earth since 1936. And then you can start going back further, and you can start thinking about dodos, and you can think about other species. And in other places, like Maryland, they're trying to figure out what the primordial ancestor is. Because each of us contains our entire gene code of where we've been for the past billion years, because we've evolved from that stuff, you can take that tree of life and collapse it back, and in the measure that you learn to reprogram, maybe we'll give birth to something that is very close to the first primordial ooze. And it's all coming out of things that look like this.
