I should like to write a post. Mars perhaps? Why not.
Just a minute…
I should like to hope that the new Mars mission is a good sign for the health of the space industry. Space exploration is important for the inevitable colonization of celestial bodies and space beyond Earth. For the many problems which the people of Earth presently have, I do not see a reason to stop venturing out into space. Suffering and war seems perpetual, but that doesn’t mean that we ought to just stop everything. To do so would be to add insult to injury. It’s quite obvious that we can do both the space bit and do our part here at home to ferment long lasting peace and social progress. The solution would be to end the perpetual war, and to bring states together, rather than to continue down this path of divide and conquer.
It’s no so easy, they say. And perhaps they’re right. But, they are right in so far as they are speaking within their circles. A truly objective thinker could sum up all of our problems and age-old pacts of hatred as a thing of inertia. Of course, we are beings of inertia; we are temporal beings, and as such our dealings with the world seem to run on tracks. These are not the tracks of conspiracy or of predisposition, rather it is just impossible to stop and hard to turn many things. For these same reasons states will continue to battle irrespective of who is wrong, U.S. presidents will change but nothing will happen in terms of policy. We, and the entities and institutions which harbor us, are like massive celestial bits tumbling through the cosmos… always on the verge of ruin, but always moving, always on course.
Anyways, this has been a tangent upon a tangent within the peels of a tangerine. Or something.
