very long-term cultural institution.

"The Living Universe Foundation":
the foundation's purpose is to ensure
"the eternal prosperity of life";
that includes eternal survival:
"Our solar system will last for billions of years.
That is a very long time, but it is not forever.
The goal of the Living Universe Foundation
is the assured survival of life.
To achieve this, humanity must spread to
other star systems."
