'The only way out is up'. All the raw
materials for life are up there waiting for us to go out and
plant forests up there, instead of chopping them down here.
All the evidence we have in terms of anatomy and genetics, make it extremely difficult to believe, that we are not animals.
Before Charles Darwin's collosal insight, we never understood that we were actually animals.
But we are animals with one vast difference, all other species, are very
largely adapted to the environment. We have evolved the ability to
change the environment to fit our needs, so we can live virtually
anywhere, this does not give us the right to turn the 'Garden of Eden'
into a parking lot. (take note literalists, I mean the 'Garden of Eden'
as a metaphor)
Our species tends to describe our history with word pictures, emotions,
TV programs, films and rituals, lest we forget. No I'm proposing
something radically different, that our history is actually an
roughly the same sense, that a multicellular body can grow
starting out with one cell, that doubles, becomes 2 4 8 16 32 64 cells
it is around here that the cells start to differentiate into the over
200 different kinds of cell that it takes to constuct a human body.
What I'm suggesting
is, the morphogenesis of our culture has endowed our species with, the
ability to vastly amplfy the ability for 'life' to fertilize space
the same mathematics that created all the bodies of our species, plus
all the bodies of all the other species. The earth is pregnant with us.
There is a lot of silica and aluminium on the moon, these elements
could be the raw materials for something very like Richard Buckminster's
geodesic domes, using the silica to create the glass and the aluminium to create the frames.
With things on the moon, being only a sixth of their weight here, makes
building much easier and larger structures cheaper, once the infrastucture is in place on the moon's surface.
If we can fly drones around the earth from thousands
of miles away with which to kill people, we can control machinery on
the moon to construct domes, using the raw materials that are on the moon
A sizeable proportion of the moon's rock is oxygen, if we extracted
that oxygen and released it in vast domes, we could breathe as long as
there were no leaks. Ok a normal nitrogen oxygen mix, would be nicer,
but it would not be essential for survival. Divers when they need to go
real deep, breathe in an oxygen helium mix.
If the human race does not go forwards, it will go backwards and end up
drowning in it's own decadence, in the belief that money or sport, are the
only true religions, first the Moon, then Mars, then Venus, then the Stars.
The biggest reason, for believing the moon is the answer for our
species to conquer space, is to think otherwise, is illogical.
Accelerating to escape velocity, in the earth's atmosphere using rocket
fuel obtained from the earth, is expensive and dangerous.
There is a much cheaper and safer route, we can use the water, that can
found on the moon, to create rocket fuel and use that fuel to enable a
space craft sent from the earth, to refuel from payload sent from the moon, and attatch it to something akin to Spaceship One and
accelerate it to escape velocity in the safety of the vacuum of
space, to achieve
orbit and beyond.
Ok this will require enormous capital cost, but once this capital is
printed by the money printing machines, the door is opened for our
species to go forth and multiply.
