A Question of Breeding

By Susan B. Martinez, Ph.D.

Throughout human history, human beings of an advanced type have coexisted with tribes of the lowest development, just as in today’s world the sophisticated West shares the planet with peoples of Stone Age culture.

Today, major scientific institutions are running trials on the teleportation of matter and energy. The almost unbelievable potentials of this research are exciting the minds of even practical physicists. The term teleportation was coined…
