Ancestry Dot Com

I saw a commercial this morning for Ancestry.com. A woman was giving a testimonial, saying that thanks to the research into her family tree, she discovered that her great grandmother had borne five children, but that only one had survived. 

This was an obvious comment upon how precious and mysterious the interconnected web of causes and conditions actually is. For those of us who are familiar with the doctrine of interdependent co-arising, this is not new information. 

Nice to see it utilized in mainstream advertising, though.
