Our exploration of the outer space has not been in vain! Our own moon has water & rich mix of elements including silver & carbon dioxide as per NASA scientists. We are abundantly blessed to seek out all our future needs from our universe, when our resources in our planet run dry! That may still be far way as all our energy needs can be met from renewable sources from the sun & wind. There is enough for all & even more provided by whoever created us, to have a comfortable & enduring life. Of course, we cannot just stretch our legs, and wait for the manna to fall from the heavens. Also, we have to control our base instincts and channel our energies toward positive pursuits; a tough call indeed, if history is any guide. And with weapons of mass destructions threatening to fall into the hands of more and more, we will always find ourselves on tenterhooks!
Even when we feel we are at the end of the tether, we still find hope and reflect to make a better living, with some course correction. We have to look around, with hunger & passion to make our lives worth the while. Destruction is for the defeatist, with their all-consuming hatred, to get even. The good has to prevail, as it has done mostly. The discoveries of newer minerals, more uses for them & the pioneering inventions as the game changer for a life unimaginable now, are sure to happen at a more rapid pace. Information technology has been a path breaker, as also advances in communications. We are stymied by limited resources to make a faster headway, but exploring beyond our planet is a real possibility, to get us much ahead in the years to come.
The greater meaning to our lives, apart from the scientific discoveries & inventions has to be understood. We are more blessed than we care to admit. Whoever gave us our place in the sun on this planet has seen to it that we are abundantly blessed to reach a higher calling. Of course, it will be through hard-work & united efforts; every action has an equal & opposite reaction, so our progress can be for the better or turn out for the worse, if we are morally bankrupt! We are given a clean slate, as we are at the apex of creation, and able to lord over others. We are also capable of using our faculties to understand & explore beyond our planet. In short, we have a higher calling to reach-out increasingly, with scientific progress.
The resources are plentiful, with even newer ones over which we have no idea; a virgin field for our exploration & imagination. The entire universe may be teeming with resources & life which could be beyond our comprehension, for now! It is time we looked at the possibilities that are unfolding than get bogged-down by problems created by us, arising from petty rivalries. When we have so much to learn but insignificant in creation & the time frame of life, let us unite as one to concentrate on an exciting future. Why blow it all when the horizon is opening-up for our taking & scrutiny?
The more we see, the more we want to understand and explore. We have just not even scratched the surface of our potential. Hubble telescope is revealing more & more secrets of our vast universe, which some believe can even be a multi-verse! We haven’t seen anything, as yet! We have miles & even light years to travel before we can sleep, if at all! We always had exciting periods in history for scientific breakthroughs; the more we know the less we seem to know & understand. Even for the man in the street, these are exciting times, despite the mundane problems that haunt us. Of course, when we solve one problem, it is the beginning of new one! That makes our lives worth the while with a tomorrow, full of hope. We carry the baton that has been handed over to us, and with another generation waiting, to run faster. Let us not drop it due to our folly. We have a higher calling to safeguard the flame so that it burns eternal! We should never blow our chances as the final epitaph is written by us only; that we did not mess-up and was grateful for the chances given us & even for the challenges that came with them!
