At the time I’m writing this, a little less than 119,000 people have viewed Elon Musk’s presentation on making humans a multi-planetary species on YouTube.
I’m puzzled as to understand why there aren’t more noise about this. No one seems to care that we’re finally going to Mars.
Is it out of disbelief? I mean, the guy who wants to send us to Mars is the founder of X.com which merged into PayPal… And he made electric cars possible with Tesla. With such a great CV, I trust he will succeed in sending humans to Mars.
I admit, I do have fears for the faith of humanity about this project. Are we going to send our best humans to Mars, making Earth dumber, like the movie “Idiocracy” so brilliantly demonstrated.
Is the Mars colony going to revolt and declare World War III, or should I say Interplanetary War I?
And my greatest fear of all… Will my son want to go live on Mars? Arg!
On a brighter side, I do have great expectations, and even dreams for this mission. As a Star Trek fan, I can’t help but dream that we’ll get over our selfish self, and because we can explore the universe, boldly go where no one has gone before, we’ll lose our drive for money, work to make humanity awesome, and to better ourselves.
By living on another planet, we’d start to care about people, and by really caring, we’d find cures for sick children, stop poisoning our food and our minds with junk and mindless entertainment.
Being aware of such incredible possibilities, I regret not having followed my deepest interests. I regret that I haven’t stayed true to my nerd nature. Instead of doing porn, my mind is rambling about how I could have helped build the spaceship to go to Mars. Okay, maybe not build the spaceship, but do other meaningful things to help humanity.
Instead, I’m just a porn star trying to make people interested in making themselves a better version of who they are through weekly blog posts. I share my contagious smile through pictures everyday in the hope of making people a little happier. And I rant about how amazing the big rocket is, and nobody except for a few nerds seem to care…
Do you believe we’re going to send the first humans on Mars around 2025?
