Compression Far Beyond Belief

 

Here’s the claim. It sounds too preposterous to be true, even to me, and I know it’s true.

 

MPC’s Family Forest® Project has now strategically compressed such a large quantity of knowledge and intelligence onto a half-ounce piece of plastic that a standard CD can be data-mined to generate tens of billions of pages of mostly unique ancestral history charts, books, and reports.

 

To put this number of pages into perspective, consider this from Google co-founder Sergey Brin. In the February 20, 2006 issue of Time magazine, he said that Google indexes 8 billion Internet pages, and if all of those pages were printed on paper and stacked, the stack would be 500 miles high.

 

And to put this height into perspective, commercial jets usually cruise at less than 7 miles high.

 

Does anyone know of any other instance of MPC’s level of digital compression of knowledge, in any field, ever having been achieved?
