We will only be capable of space exploration, if we can work together, as a single entity.
I've got lots of reasons that this is what it takes, and reason to believe, it got stopped dead in it's tracks, before we even existed.
But that's another story.
Tower of babel, thats the reason why.
" Look at these men, they are of one language, and one purpose, there is nothing they desire that they will not accomplish."
It was way in the "way back", long before we remember today, that we were sundered from eachother, fo the purpose of keeping us busy fighting
ourselves, and thus keeping us from our rightful place in the pantheon of the universe.
We men, we all dream of being GODS, because we SHOULD be.
Only WE are stopping our ascent to the heavens, only WE are capable of impeding OUR progress. The human mind knows no bounds, men have only the chains
they place on themselves.
Sad but true.......
A lot of people may not understand what you are saying, but I do.
The Tower of Babal incident described the humans working together as one toward a goal of space exploration, in which the 'gods' (aka
Extraterrestrials) did not agree with.
"Look at them. We must go down and confound their tongues..."
I am glad that it was not lost on all, you obviously understand exactly what I was saying.
I am not religious, in the sense that I believe a "GOD" is all powerful and created everything, I just believe the biblical stories have historical
merit, and that there is much truth, about our origins and ancient past locked away in their tomes.
They fear our abilities. Our boundless minds, our unbreakable spirit, our ability to overcome any and all obsticles.
So they used the only thing that could keep us down forever against us, ourselves.
They turned our focus inward, concentrated on what men could do to men, instead of what man could do in the heavens.
We really are, and should be GODS, we arent because we would rather spend our time worrying about defending ourselves from our own brothers.
Fear not, the singularity is coming, we will be one again.
The only question though, is will there just be another sundering, like the events we see playing out today for instance.
Always a wedge is being driven between us all, always focusing on our differences, never on our similarities, that is very curious to me.
Why would a human always try to divide his own people?
Would a human do this?
If not, who would? And for what purpose?
