What is out there in space is the assortment of vastness into a constellation of Galaxies, Stars, Nebula and an assortment of mysterious and somewhat terrifying forces which bring quickely a sense of sobriety when considering the possibility that man will one day be out there in space.

Man with his ability to reason, man with his ability to leap into the unknown and face what ever risks he is confronted with. Out out there in the deep space what will future mans ponderings be in them lonely pauses of mind, what fears will stir his awakenings, what terrors will metamorphis from his psyche?

This is a metaphysical/philosophical question asked in context of future human beings who are navigators and explorers in space. Not the human being of today whose world is defined by limits of geography and earthly institutions; but a future human who is living on the bounding crest of the unknowns in space, the solar system, the galaxy and the vacuum of the interstellar void.

My greatest fear will be realized if nothing is "out there."

Exactly. I think the most horrible thing that can happen is to realize there is nothing out there. Nothing is more sobering than realizing we have a whole universe to ourselves.

The only other thing that I can think of is finding something that can stomp us out as easily as an ant beneath our heel, and letting it know that we exist. What happens if our curiosity kicks open a hornet's nest the size of the sun? What happens when we become the ants?

My greatest fear is that there are more just like us.

will we ever get to that stage where man explores the universe?i have my doubts.....we,r overdue a world changing event and in the next 50 years there may be a few that bring that to fruitution that could send us back to just being able to survive never mind able to do anything else.

We may very well be the ants already.

Very insightful, sometime I look to the Stars and shudder.

Deep down that is probably the greatest fear that most of us have.

Certainly would explain why we let our imaginations run wild speculating what might be.

(astrology, sci-fi, myth, etc.)

I think I can relate my fear that there is nothing 'out there' or that we might find something terrible to my fear that there is nothing after life or that there is a Hell waiting for me. It just gives me the same distressing feeling.

Our greatest fear and source of humility, if not humiliation.. would be to discover that it's the last who are first and the first, last, meaning that being the most recently evolved sentients within the context of a non-localized holographic universe (and evolutionary framework), we are, physically and potentially, the very crowning glory of all creation standing next to the very Godhead on a mountaintop of cosmic evolution. It's a fear however, that leads us to the humor of true understanding, imho.

I recently read an article that the people of the world need to be prepared for a discovery of life outside of planet Earth. They claim it will shake society to its very foundations and cause massive social problems. I think that is something to be concerned about and at the same time I find it simply ridiculous that the greatest discovery of the human race is also the most terrifying or that it has the potential to be harmful.

I fear that we will never be told the truth about what is out there. For whatever reasons, I think its everyone's right to know. Whatever is OUT THERE has been OUT THERE for a very long time, and if it intended to destroy us, I would think it would have done so already.

With all religious stuff aside, its not illogical to think that homo sapien is the only one that evolved this far. (Current Space Tech) I mean... as far as complex life, we could be the only ones. What if?

Edited:
Btw my fear is finding that we fall into some sort of known slave species, OR that something like The Reapers exist. (Mass Effect)


The Reapers, known by the geth as the Old Machines, are a highly advanced machine race of synthetic-organic starships. The Reapers reside in dark space, the vast, mostly starless space between galaxies. They hibernate there, dormant for fifty thousand years at a time, before they are given the signal to return. The first Reaper known to have communicated with organic life, referred to by Saren Arterius as Sovereign, claimed that the Reapers have neither beginning nor end. Even their true name is a mystery; "Reapers" was a name bestowed by the Protheans, and Sovereign stated that whatever the Protheans chose to call them was of little concern to its kind.

Sovereign also reveals that the Reapers were the original creators of the Citadel and the mass relay network. These massive constructs exist so that any intelligent life in the galaxy would eventually discover them and base their technology upon them – all part of a scheme to harvest the galaxy’s sentient life in a repeating cycle of purges that has continued relentlessly over countless millennia.

We already are a slave species.

My greatest fear, is that if humanity doesn't take that collective leap forward, to get us out of this mess and grow up -

We are left alone to continue as we are - indefinitely - separated, alone, and pitted against one another.

Peace,

Unless all possibility of predation by any power or principality has been removed whereby the higher always and forever serves to lower to raise up what is low to increasingly higher heights... We must not assume, lest we place unnecessary constrains upon ourselves by imagining that we are nothing but food in a purely eat or be eaten universe that is all tooth and claw.

I find it amuzing if not hilarious how the non-religious seem to actually prefer the idea that we are slaves and food to higher powers, than what I've stated above. It's ridiculous, but it's true that the anti-God people are adamant and vehement in their assertions that we just meat for a universal grinder, like being victims of the ultimate universal conspiracy theory.

I have actually had the experience of the ant and I can tell you that it puts you in your place. But knowing one's place is nothing to fear because at least it is something as opposed to nothing. You can work with something but you can't do anything with nothing.

Well since we are in the metaphysical section I'll speak freely.

I would say that we as the human race are under the process of assimilation. The process is known as sequentializaion with the end goal of a hive mind consciousness much like what you see with worker ants or other insect hierarchies. You are encouraged to identify yourself within the language of the grid program rather than a simulatneously unfolding natural world. Our thoughts and spectrum of expression are becoming restricted, especially within the young. They are being persecuted for using their imagination. We are to be watched over and anything that is observed changes it's behavior.

The souls become marked, astrally by the subjecting force when the independent being gives over their free will to the collective. We also dis-empower ourselves when we look for salvation outside of our selves. It's good to have teachers but if they are truly evolved, they would not want to be worshiped. We do not live only once, that is a fantasy. Our bodies die, but the driver moves on to evolve and experience further.

Territories have been carved out in the astral realms within this sphere for thousands of years. They are created by and thrive upon belief systems. That's why they are always recruiting. Need new batteries.

When you die, your soul generally moves in the direction of it's resonance and what it has been programmed with. The souls progression on the sequential path is very limiting and will take tremendous energy to decompress.

Warning, video does have graphic images.

Sanest post I've read in a long time. But guess what, time is running out and I don't see as much as a hint of humankind wanting to take that leap. Leaving us only one alternative, and it's not going to be pleasant... at first. I feel for the ones being manipulated into behaving like cattle and believing in the "cult of personality", but not for the puppeteers. My advice is fasten your seatbelts, it's going to be a bumpy ride, and when things get bad try to refrain from becoming zombies, that will count points in your scorecards. You'll know what that means when the time comes, good luck to us all.

I used to be worried or concerned about a type of sister world, but at the apex of technology, called Babylon (see The Revelation of John), which used to mess with the world here on earth, call them agents and powers and principalities wrapped up in some sort of cosmic dilemma, pointing to mankind of all things, as if we were, and according to many especially at a place like ATS still are... key pawns in a grand universal controversy and conspiracy, who's aim it was (still is..?) to enslave all mankind - been there done that got the t-shirt.

Babylon however, as an empire involved with "ruling the universe" through ritual magic practices aimed at mankind, eventually, after enough time being held in in a continual state of observation, even by the infinite Godhead, and all Godliness and collective consciousness, the whose cosmic over - fell, it fell to ruin in the mirth and charm of a secret joke told at the devil's expense, so down he goes, double bound and chained into the abyss.

Speaking allegorically, this "hero's journey" we are all on in the sense of this percieved battle between good and evil, and against all manner of perceived and imagined powers and principalities in a purely dog eat dog (god eat god?) world, because it's played out relative to an absolute objective reality, was worth it, every inch of it's sorrow and suffering, and broken dreams, because it broke us all, broke us down, and here in the reelm where the love of God meets the human being, here is where the triumph is had, with a shared cosmic joke going up through the roof to the very heavens and the shouts of joy of the angels themselves at our eventual realization and recognition (re cognition) or what is known as the revelation of the sons of the God which the whole of all creation has been groaning in travail, as if in childbirth to bring to birth, so it's painful.

But,

"The more that sorrow and suffering has carved into our being, the more joy we can contain."
~ Kahlil Gibran

So it's to our own delight, and then you have laughter and love in ALL DIRECTIONS, where indeed it is the last who are first, and the first, last.

Do we have the courage to accept that the whole of all creation, no matter what's our there, was made for the son of God because of love (that's us, and the reason why).

Our fear is preventing us from cluing in to the truth of our existence and the true place of man in the creation, no matter how seemingly inscrutable or unfathomable is the predicament that we find ourselves in (existing).

So there's great joy after the birth, at a new creation, even if only as the possibility of a re-creation, which when it comes comes in the form and as fast as, the twinkling of an eye.
