Ho fellow explorer,
With the detection of gravitational waves left behind by the big bang, specifically inflation, there has been a lot of talk about the possibility of a Multiverse, within which our Universe exists as a one of many.
Think you would like to get through to another bubble universe, frothed to existence from the violent nature of inflation? Well, you may need an Alcubierre drive.

Anyway, in keeping with the concerns of the life which calls Earth home,
Now let us move forward without torturing people.
Fuck. Like, really.
Really, it’s one thing to kill lower animals (not necessarily good), and another thing entirely to kill, and on so large a scale, animals that we know live rich emotional lives.
And the rest of us finger-wagers, I’m certain there are things that you too ought to stop doing…

Also, I personally am, certainly to some degree, a lazy jerk, and I too ought to knock that shit off.
Of course, besides war, cultural divides, and our various ways of terrorizing non-human life is our wholesale destruction of the environment, the only hospitable environment… with the exception of the space station, itself only existent because the life on the ground was able to develop sufficiently to contrive such extra-terrestrial environments.
Seriously humans… get your shit together.
So, while we ought to pursue faster than light travel, we cannot in good conscience escape our obligations to each other and our beautiful, life-supporting home planet.
Look at yourself, and doubt those most valued traditions that you have…
I am picturing in my mind’s eye, a recent video I saw of frogs being chopped up and served ALIVE.
And people eat and enjoy this particular meal/event, because they get to observe and consume a lower life form being forced to come to terms with such immense world-shattering physical pain, confusion, and fear.
You are welcome that I have not posted this here.
If the whole world were one individual, I would slap him/her, and demand that he/she takes responsibility and cuts a great deal of this shit out!
Really world… we act as if there are deities who will appear out of nowhere, and clean right everything which we have destroyed.
Here’s a little secret for you: that’s not going to happen.
For each of you, if you hold a tradition that does not rationally seem to be something positive for humanity… please do not teach it to your children.
Anyway, enough rant.
Here is something silly for you; a take on a classic (the best part is at the end).
