although an undersea school would be cool....it doesn't inspire.
Tell that to Jules Verne, Jaques Cousteau, Steve Irwin, treasure hunters, marine biologists, geoligists, oceanographers, submersible designers and
pilots, divers, aquariophiles and all those who love the sea. It's real, here, and now, can be reached humongously more easily than space, has so
much yet to reveal. We have literally just scratched the surface....of our own anscestoral home!
I wish more people would look nearer to home for inspiration that has a realistic rate of satisfaction, sometimes lots of small things can far
ourweigh some of the big things. A lot of Science Fiction has distracted people from the true wonders right on our own doorstep and has bred
complacency with seeking answers to the mysteries of that wriggly thing we call "life".
If we want to explore and learn, why is it that we don't investigate a source we CAN verify as a step on the right path and with untold information?
But no, it seems natural for humans to be stupid and look into vacant voids from a ball of dirt with nothing to verify close at hand (a few out of
focus bugs don't count) and wishing there was a connection to something or somewhere more.
If I won the euromillions quadruple rollover I would start a company offering free flights to space for any human who wished to explore.
