Yes saw it this afternoon but sadly, not the SETI we are looking for.
SETI in the form of the sarcophagus of pharoah SETI 1 is in the Crypt of the Sir John Soane museum in LIncoln's Inn Fields behind Holborn underground station. Who was Sir John Soane? Very famous architect who built the Bank of England building among others.
Amazing collection of stuff where hardly any of it is labelled [http://www.soane.org/url][/url]

Yes Chris, very good choice. Next time I go there I will have a guided tour. For a laugh, I might even buy some scented moustache wax for my brother for Christmas!

Well, fess up time, my avatar is Seti II not Seti I, but it is still the same genre. I thought that a couple of pedantics might have homed in. Personally I'm fascinated by ancient Egypt there is more to that than meets the eye.

Torino has the best old Egypt Museum after Cairo. Go and visit it.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shroud_of_Turin

Becomes a reminder of this as well.

What a coincidence.

I'd love to one day :-)

Whether the shroud is genuinely 2000 years old and was a burial cloth, really matters not. The devout will still worship it as a symbol of their belief.

If you do visit the museum, no photography allowed and there is CCTV

Or perhaps the closing ceremony of the Los Angeles Olympic Games, back in 1984.

Next it becomes a couple of other YouTube videos with some interesting contents.

Becomes kind of a ladder with several or many steps, where one could be about those magnificent things of nature at times,
or even the possibility that we are being visited by other civilizations.

If not so, I would very much love to know what is the reason for that of deceit, or perhaps rather counterfeiting, because the first word could be used in a more political context.

If rather make it that of red, white and blue and next shining as well, it could well be about such magnificent things which could be found in nature,
but for which science either has no explanation for, or rather seek to explain away, for several reasons.

Again the same word two times above, but I think I found the better one to use here.

Also perhaps a reminder of the old question which could be "where we are coming from and next going".

For such a thing it could perhaps be "Wonderous stories" at times, except for the accident which could happen and next break your arm.

Therefore perhaps not only about where we are coming and next going, but perhaps also about the meaning of it all.

I will have a couple of links later for those interested.
