Given the Foundation’s efforts around the library this wonderful exhibit that shows the history of the world and symbolizes our climb from nothing. From the wiki:

The Roots of Knowledge is a permanent stained glass exhibit in the Ira A. and Mary Lou Fulton Library at Utah Valley University in Orem, Utah in the United States.[2] It is 200 feet (61 m) long, about 10 feet (3.0 m) tall, and comprising 80 separate panes.[3] Each of the panels was handcrafted from over 43,000 pieces of glass depicting part of the progress of human knowledge during recorded history.[4][5] The exhibit depicts both religious and secular events and objects.[6]

In addition to the stained, blown, fused, and carved glass used for most of the window, other objects were incorporated into the display.[5] These included a shark’s tooth, part of the Berlin Wall, a Purple Heart medal, a $5 bill from 1777, and glass from NASA.[2][3][5][7] Part of the window incorporates a replication of the oldest stained glass known: a window created in 647 AD at The Abbey Church of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, Monkwearmouth–Jarrow in England.[4][8]

Mormon Transhumanist Meetup

Unlike most transhuman groups the MTA actually has a well rounded consistent meetup with 20 to 40 people every month.  Normally the second Sunday evening of each month, it is a great place to meet local transhumanists and even if you a secular transhumanist like me they are pretty friendly. to learn more:
