This short energetic video by Jason Silva asks the question, “Why do we explore space?”. Silva among others believe that it is our desire to expand our consciousness. By seeking new horizons we develop new expectations of what the world is and what it can be.
I feel as we explore into the far reaches of the universe, we’re also delving deeper into ourselves. We’re questioning where we came from, what our future holds, and the laws that govern what lies in-between.
When we keep pushing beyond all limits, when we get to Kubrick’s “Beyond the Infinite”, the place where dreams are born…through the wormhole, down the rabbit hole… It’s glorious!
I like these shots of awe because they are short, energetic, positive jolts of futuristic philosophy. They’re a way to experience awe in compact form, and best of all it’s easy to share with others. I Hope you enjoyed.
When we dream of space, we dream of transcendence, we dream of what we might become.
