A thought occurred to me. I was watching Ancient Discoveries about cars and planes, and it said the phrase "up higher and further than we've ever been
before". So It got me to thinking about it, because it reminded me of the phrase, the sky's the limit. Then I remembered the saying in the movie 2001
A Space Odyssey. The sky's no longer the limit.
Because really, what it made me do was realize, you can go beyond the sky. When you go beyond the sky, you really can't go up any further because
there really is a limit to how far up one can go. And here's whatt i realized.
When you go beyond our atmosphere, you go into space. In space there really is no up and down as we know it. And unlike the sky, there is no air and
atmosphere, only a vacuum, and very little refractory particles that make the color of the sky.
So, when you've gone into space, you've gone beyond the sky, and the sky is no longer the limit. In space you can't go up or down, you can only go up
or down in the sky. So when in space, there's really only one thing you can do.
And that is go on and on, further than anyone has ever been before, away from your home planet.
I think there's a lesson in there somewhere. Maybe, just perhaps, there is also some grand metaphor for life.
Well, it's something to ponder anyhoo.
