Space: The Future of Mankind
Space is far-out. It is the Mother of all dreams. Since the dawn of man, the big mystery of the sky has compelled poets, philosophers, scientists, theologians and artists to explore the significance of the human soul. Why? Because within Space exists the Answer; the Final Answer! Why are we here? How are we here? And is there anybody out there?
Can it get more Groovy than that?
July 20, 2009 gave us the 40th anniversary of the first-manned mission to the Moon – led by Mission Commander Neil Alden Armstrong, Command Module Pilot Michael Collins, and Lunar Module Pilot Edwin Eugene 'Buzz' Aldrin, Jr., NASA’s Apollo 11 touched down on the Lunar surface and Mankind achieved a new and unparalleled milestone. Space became ours! At that pivotal moment in time, the very Universe ceased being an untouchable expanse and became a grim and grand reality. Humanity collectively reached adolescence – no longer would we be confined by our Father’s house; soot and soil, water and air, even mind and soul were now mere child’s toys and the big, bright playground of Outer Space became the New Now.
Today, the Future is here; manned missions to Mars, terra-forming planets, complex and self-sufficient satellites, black holes, worm holes, the whole gambit of exploratory imagination is before us and is limited only by our ambition. The Face of God is begging to be kissed – but humanity best check its breath before moving into first base. The Groovy mind shock that will surely meet us as we continue to venture into and understand this complex universe will catch many individuals off-guard and call into question every antiquated virtue that they have held so dear. In short, the body of humanity is relatively unprepared for this Adulthood. Only the few; those unique Persons equally advanced in preparatory imagination and pragmatism will possess the skills necessary to become the first generation of Space. Only those individuals well-versed and instinctively immersed within the tenets of The Fab Reich and War, Semen and Grooviness will prove worthy of inheriting the Universe!
