The Foundations Library Project is about building a library of knowledge that is resilient enough to last for centuries. The purpose of such an archive is to help ensure a post human or trans-human civilization based on ours, for us or our children or even our machines. With the Archive, we work towards the long term success of intelligence in the universe. It is the single most important thing we can do to improve the likely hood of achieving a post human intelligence, if not from this civilization then maybe for the next. This is the key to why the Foundation is so committed to the creation of the library and archive.
