Have you ever watched someone look at the stars? The wonder, the longing, the warmth you can see in their eyes? Maybe it is some mystic belief, maybe a foretelling, but where else will the human race go when Earth is full?
Some would argue we are technologically challenged. Some would simply say “why bother?” But getting to live on different planets is simply a next step in the long and winding road of human kind evolving. At the rate we are growing in numbers, where else would we go? Underwater colonies are a solution, but limited still.
To see this, the first thing one has to do is rid themselves of short term perspectives. Yes, it might not happen in this lifetime or in the next hundred of years. But 3,000 years later? Who knows? Maybe we will find human race trapped in an immense collection of universes such as Frank Herbert has predicted in his Dune series.
Humans tend to be self destructive, true. We should then all thank Mother Nature, providence, or some other higher power of choice for creating life in such an adaptive and survivor-cut manner. No matter what cataclysm, no matter what weapons we turn on each other, there will be remaining traces of our civilization. And the aim to further grow will keep us going. Like the remains of fallen empires that helped new empires grow.
What is common knowledge is that mankind can never be content with what we have already achieved. We need to find out more, to answer our unlimited questions, to keep wandering on our never-ending road through new worlds. Therefore, if some identify the other planets and other galaxies as future targets, future frontiers to expand, one day it will all come true.To see the article and vote it on Love to Lead, go here.
