We are talking about launching manned space flights to Mars and the
moon. Is that good or bad? Will it benefit the Children?
Or, will it take the Beast of Terror into space? Find out.

Launching Our Beast of Terrorism &
Sentinels Of Vigilance To Mars And The Moon!
New York, N.Y.--Jan. 10, 2004 -- There is a plan underfoot to launch
our Beast of Terror to the planet Mars, some 35 million miles from
There is a
plan to launch our Beast of Terror into Space
States is more than toying with the idea of manned Mars missions in
the near future and establishing a long-term base on the moon.
What does it mean to our future?
Can we, who struggle to resolve the Terrorism on Earth, find Vigilance
in the stars?
Human beings are explorers.
What separates us from the beasts of the earth is our ability to
adapt. We walk upright, allowing us to move freely in any
kind of terrain. We were given thumbs and the ability to
grasp, a key ingredient to tool making that started with the club to
bash heads and has evolved into the manufacturing of the computer chip
where billions of pieces of information can be stored on a pinhead.
A stock of Mars-related items are already available at the Space
Store, near NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston
On the one hand, we have
glorious belief systems that suggest the hope we will one day live in
a perfect world in peace and harmony with one another, and, on the
other, we design nuclear and biochemical weapons that can release
viral vermin with the potential to maim and destroy all civilization.
Space exploration means that we will shoot
into the stars both our good and bad natures. Humanities
great glories and its ugly tyrannies will march together into the
great expands of the universe.
Both the Sentinel of Vigilance and Beast of
Terror will be aboard the spacecraft hurdling through the stars.
Will that be good or bad for our children and Children's Children's
The argument can be well-placed on
both sides of the polemic coin. Here we are locked in
mortal battle in the Mid East, fighting with clubs and knives against
one another as we did a million years ago when one tribe sought to
dominate another tribe for whatever reason.
Will we export the genes of Saddam
Hussein and Osama bin Laden to the far reaches of space?
Or, will the genes be those of Gandhi or Martin Luther King?
stop fighting"...........a third party intervenes and.......
can be little doubt that our world as it exists today is ready for
something far beyond the petty battles we wage with another on this
planet. When children fight amongst themselves it often
takes a third party, an intervening force to raise their visions above
and beyond their own selfishness.
"Stop fighting. Look.
Here is something that benefits us all, that is far greater and of
more importance than anything we could imagine. Look.
Look up. Reach for the stars together. Put down your
weapons and reach into the unknown, where the treasures of the
universe really exist."
Would such an intervention stop
the radical fundamentalists in Iraq from strapping on a bomb and
walking into a herd of American or Allied soldiers? Would
the scales of human blindness fall from a martyr's eyes if he could
see that one day he could reach out and touch the face of God from the
cockpit of a space probe to the limits of the universe?
want to take an adventure through space?
the long haul, space is the great bindery of human conflict.
To explore space requires that all nations and all peoples seek to
expand their humanity rather than contract it as war and conflict
seems to do.
imaginative child ...........
child with any imagination would not want to hurl through space and
kiss the stars? What magic and mystery lies in the
great unknown above us?
I presume that the
children in Iraq, like the ones in Africa, Asia, North and South
America, Europe and all of the vast lands, stare up at the stars and
wonder what lies beyond them.
Space is the
great bindery of human conflict
purely a child's point of view, there is little question that space
exploration would charge the world with a new mission for humanity,
one that might heal the wounds of selfishness that we tend to nurture
here on earth. That selfishness is that our "land and our
way" is the "only way."
As long as we are bound to this
earth, humans will carve out their territory and draw battle lines
around their cultures, their history, their ethnicity, their belief
systems as though they lived on separate planets and all who would
infringe upon them were alien invaders.
It has been said many times that all
borders are battle lines. And the real estate of the earth
is limited. This fuels the madness to protect, and
in most cases, when such protection of the real estate is threatened,
leads to war.
estate lines are smudged, the whole becomes more important than
the sum of its parts
(Picture of Mid East taken from space)
But when the
real estate lines are erased or smudged as has happened in the
European Economic Union, the thirst for waging war on neighbors
diminishes. Collective goals overpower individual ones.
The whole becomes more important than the sum of its parts.
Space exploration offers the world
the opportunity to unify its great imaginative resources of
individualism into one collective union. It provides those
who harbor their real estate with brutal jealousy the right to explore
brave new worlds, to expand their visions to lands far beyond their
What magic and
mystery lies beyond us and our Children's Children's Children?
And, at the
center of this belief are the children. Space exploration
is not only for the present generation. The present
generation may be the great, great, great grandmothers and
grandfathers of it, but the real benefactors of reaching for the stars
will be the Children's Children's Children.
The fighting that exists on the earth
today is symbolic of the need to explore space, to expand the
potential for human evolution. As the pressure
of over population grows (the world population doubles approximately
every generation) the pressure upon societies to protect their "real
estate" and the belief systems associated with them expands.
Only when the potential for more real
estate unveils itself will the pressure be relieved amongst those who
jealously guard their homes and history, as one might guard the last
crumb of bread on a lifeboat set adrift with no land in sight.
exploration spreads out a universe of opportunity for the future
of the children
spreads out a universe of opportunity for the future of the children.
It provides room for them to grow and prosper, to create new worlds,
to design new ways of life.
In a way, when the space program evolves, the Beast of Terror will
shrink. The Beast of Terror thrives on selfishness.
It seeks to make us think in terms of what others will "take" from us,
and drives us to protect our lives through Fear of Loss.
offer the world unlimited gain for all humanity
offer unlimited gain for all humanity.
It will provide the world, not just one
nation, the opportunity to engage the imagination in ways none of us
yet can comprehend.
It will shrink our Beast of Terror's
shadow, for the power of Vigilance, the need to protect our right to
explore and expand will overpower our need to protect and defend what
little is left of this Earth.
The journey to
space will be the seeding of Vigilance, not Terrorism
Yes, when the
rockets blast off for the moon and Mars with people aboard, it will be
a bright moment for the future of humanity. For
aboard the ship will be the Beast of Terror who will shrink as the
gravity decreases. When human imagination expands, it
dwarfs the Beast's Fear, Intimidation and Complacency with the
brightness of Courage, Conviction and Right Actions.
The journey to space will be the seeding of
Vigilance, not Terrorism. For Terrorism cannot exist long
when the imagination is fired. And space, its limitless
expanse, is the treasure box of imagination of all children.
