Becoming Spacefaring

I do believe that mankind should be a space-faring  species because this is most probably the only way towards the survival of our species.

We can never survive the next thousand years if we are just confined in this planet, or if we are just locked into the confines and premises of this world, of this planet. Yes, I’ve recently watched Interstellar for the nth time and with it I grew fonder of science and all the possibilities it has to offer to us humans.

We need to be more than this because we are made to discover things, we are made to break barriers and to go beyond the frontiers of what limits this world. We need to learn how to risk things because it would be a very rewarding thing if we are to succeed in the things that we do.

Don’t get me wrong. I love our dear earth! We have devised means to travel this world efficiently both in the land, water, and air. At solid ground level, we can do with bikes to buses, a casual taxi ride to a luxurious limo rental (I was never fond of these before, but after my first ride with Inland Empire Limousines on my cousin’s wedding, it just made me look forward to another one for a bachelor’s party for anyone in my circle of friends), private cars to commuting through public transportation. Other means are through the vast waters of the earth. It’s the same story though: from small boats to ocean cruises to the military fleet. And on the air, we have numerous vessels already that can literally take us to distant places ranging from a few minutes to a few hours.

The earth has indeed become smaller.

I do believe that we need to go beyond the surface of this world, and to go to outer space, to spread our species there, to colonize new world, search for new worlds, or even stumble on intelligent life out there. We may never know what is out there, but we may know that we have what it takes to go there.


The Whirlpool of Time

We  are living in a world, in a universe that goes in tandem with time.

Time is the one thing which serves as a measurement of whatever we do, and unknown to us we are travelling through not only space itself, but also through  time itself.

Time is what enables us to see the beauty of this world, the wonder of this world, of this universe, because this is  the reality of everything.

Space and time are the two fundamental ingredients of reality. Space is what we see, what we feel, what we touch, what we experience, and  what we live on. Time is what we live in, where we flow on, what we do, time is ourselves.

I do believe that this is a topic which is very deep, a topic which is incomprehensible to the human mind, that even I, is having a very hard time on thinking of what am I writing, but fortunately there came a grasp of bright light that have flickered on my hypothalamus.

The whirlpool of time which I am referring to is the one which enables us to see the reality of things in this universe, and that things are happening due to the interconnection of this reality that I am referring to. As we live our lives, we are interacting with space, and this is the most obvious part of it, but unknown to us, subconsciously, we are interacting with time, more.
