In what Tariq Malik, writing forSpace.com terms audacious in this article, Quantum POP believes is not so much audacious as it is awe-dacious. It is the result of reaching the inevitable conclusion, that we are running out of the resources to remain in the lifestyle of prosperity for all, to which we would like to become accustomed too. And, since we have the technology, why not just put a bunch of the money that was going to be invested anyway, on finding and developing the dwindling resources of earth, and put that money where the mother lode of all resources are. I don’t have to say it do I? You got it. That’s Right!
This is where we want to be as a species the evidence would seem to indicate. On what do we base this? The world loves tech and the better standard of living it fosters and the fun it brings.. It is everywhere. all cultures and creeds.The more we make it, the more people want it and the more the world’s standard of living increases as a direct or indirect result of this tech toy working model of wealth creation. And what are we making this wealth creation stuff out of? Things that are disappearing on earth but are in great abundance out there in the heavens.
It is instinctual, throughout all languages and cultures since the dawn of any historical record that when we seek God we look to the heavens. Are our very instincts so corrupted that even they are deceived? Then we should have never been. And if you believe that, then what are you doing here anyway. Go somewhere else and stop trying to slow down the fruits of evolution. Species evolve or die. It’s the law. And those that break the law must go to the house of pain.
It is not that we all want to live in space or that even most of us do. It is that we can live anywhere.and we will improve the quality life on earth by doing so. If I were a person with skills, I wouldn’t mind living out in space for 9 mo or so doing a job making a bunch of money and then coming back to earth and hanging out. Fisherman and other trades have been doing this for years.
Quantum POP believes that as a matter of survival, if we do not leave the nest, this latest earth product of dominant species will go the way of the dinosaur and will be replaced with a new species which fulfills the earth spirit, mother gya whatever’s seeming desire to consciously connect in some way to the greater universe and embrace the creation from which it is made and from where we all come.
Space exploration and development is not arrogance. It is rather, an exercise in awe. The awe mankind inescapably feels when it comes face to face with the realization scientifically of its own puny tiny stature in a life of infinite proportions. Instead of fearing it, we must rejoice in the knowledge that in this universe, our creator has seen fit to give something as small as we, so much abundance. And all we have to do is what we love. This realization can only humble us and make us better able to accept it with gratitude. As we learn it, let us teach it and afford access to creation, to as many as possible, as soon as possible. To want more is to do more.
More awesome awedaciousness is certain to come.
