As noted in earlier “short & long games” response, what Valley people told me is need for reputation to secure funding. That there’s widespread agreement on the need for this, but databases are not “hot.” Alternatively, come across someone with a reputation and or money, other creative solutions and patience. That said, it may never come to pass and collectively we face the consequences and pay the price as a civilization and or species. Having dedicated decades to this pursuit, you can only do your best to explore all avenues. Nonlinear events are real. Persistence and timing are half of your equation because ability, per se, is easy.
