    Uh, not.
    I don't believe in the Age of Aquarius so strictly. The zodiac ages are just ways to describe epochs of humanity. The moon in the 7th house would be favorable for deeply emotional partnerships, especially romantic ones. A Jupiter-Mars conjunct would mean fortuitous action, so yes... if Jupiter were conjunct Mars it could mean that our exploration of space would have a lot of support. You should really consider studying astrology, you obviously have a knack for it.

    Seriously though... what modern people call astral travel is real and there is a scientific basis for it in quantum entanglement. All of the studies into near death experiences illustrate that consciousness exists separately from the body, but within it. The two are mutually exclusive. It's much more cost effective to travel out of body than using all of our planet's resources to leap over to the next planet, when you can really use your consciousness to go anywhere you please. Consciousness moves faster than the speed of light, as long as you have the intention to know where you're going.

    Also, science still applies to a state of raised consciousness, it just becomes applicable in new ways never before imagined. For instance, there are things you can and cannot do while in astral form, different laws to observe, and these commonalities have been recorded throughout the ages. The Vedic texts are one such example.

    If you could travel back in time 200 years to tell the scientists of that day about quantum mechanics, they would think you were some kind of charlatan. Today it's a reality.

    But... explaining this to someone who isn't there, in this medium, is difficult. It's even more difficult in America, where the scientific establishment has formed taboos based on early Christian America. The Russians do far more research into this stuff because funding is not biased. I don't expect you to care or believe me though.

    I would much rather see humans use their genius and limited resource to solve the crises that face the current and upcoming generations. When humanity is uplifted, we will see space in a whole different way.


    Alright John Denver. I prefer my space station, thank you very much.

    Thanks for your supremely unproductive response to what I'm saying, as usual.

    I know, I support the space program. Totally unproductive. I need to get in touch with my self-conscious in order to be better than those poor bastards that died in pursuit of science.

    Who's talking about being better? I support scientific research.

    I'm saying there are better ways to travel space that don't involve consuming the planet's resources, and traveling at a snail's pace.

    Can you stop trolling this thread now please?

    If people want to think of what ifs they can do in their own lives with their own money.


    Saying that, I personally do not see much potential in space travel unless the laws of physics are wrong.

    Re: Do you support the Space Program?

    I very much support the space program. I think we as a species - not just a couple countries - should think a lot more seriously about increasing our presence in space.

    As it stands now we've got all our eggs in one basket. A lot of things can happen to the Earth that we positively cannot control. An asteroid (an extinction level event) could hit us at any time. The magnetic poles could shift. When that happens it weakens and fades first before realigning, meanwhile permitting the whole planet to be irradiated. The super-volcano in Yellowstone (or other locations) could go off. If one erupts, it would be bad enough for all humanity. Two or more and we've got major problems.

    I'm not saying any of these things will happen, only that they could, so we would be wise to ensure the continuation of our species. I think a moonbase is a great start. From there, find water on the moon and extract it to fuel spacecraft. Other materials could be mined on the moon and sent to orbital manufacturing facilities via mass drivers from the moonbase. From there, we can seriously consider a colony on Mars. It will all take a lot of time, so we'd best be about it.

    Of course I grew up watching the first human walk on the moon.

    Space truly is the final frontier, and we need to get out there.

    It truly amazes me the lack of vision around here, lol.
    Explore the oceans ?
    A resounding YES!
    I also believe that we should learn about and discover ourselves.
    We have humanity itself to work on.
    Outer space can wait.

    We already know that we are humans WTH else is there to wait for? And what are you expecting to learn from the oceans?
