The Biohistory Research Hall is a forum (hall) where we examine, study what it means to be alive and express the processes and results of that work.
When thinking about what does it mean to be alive, we begin to recognize the great diversity and commonality in the living creatures around us. Life began with our first ancestor 3.8 billion years ago, which went on to give rise to all the myriad species of living things that through cycles of development, and complex ecological systems in turn. We can read the history of life within that story.
By giving exact and beautiful expression to the story of the history of life, we develop an appreciation for the fascinating appeal of living creatures, and sense of curiosity and wonder about life. By contemplating what it is to live and to be alive, we hope to contribute to the development of a society that treasures life.
