SPACE TRAVEL: BEEN THERE, DONE THAT
Are you keen to sign up for space travel, the ultimate adventure, but don’t know how?
Not to worry! I know how you feel but more to the point, so do many others thanks to whom there is already a web-page for “Space tourism: 6 things to consider,” the “List of private spaceflight companies” has found its way onto Wikipedia, and “the biggest rocket ever constructed stacked, a dream come true” has been reported just a short time ago.
Everybody knows, space travel is not merely imminent, it is happening as we speak.
However, believing it is a first would be forgetting that 70% of both you and Earth’s surface are water, the total of which is estimated at 1.4 billion cubic kilometers, not counting you and me.
Though none of us were around when water first landed on Earth, I think it must still have been a lot of water by any standard — wouldn’t you agree? It had to arrive from somewhere. Well, it turns out it arrived by space travel from outer space.
To us on the wordy side, space travel is new and, therefore, a first. But on the wordless side, that is 70% of our body weight, it is a case of been-there-done-that all over again.
Having done it before means it can do it again. Water knows space travel inside out.
WATER & YOU
Extraordinarily responsive to change, water knows what’s going on ahead of time, comes in many disguises (ice, vapor, snow, etc.), is intelligent beyond anything we have a measure for, and always finds back to itself.
The good news, 70% of you is water and the proof is in the pudding.
Extraordinarily responsive to change, you have responded to your most pressing changes since day one, or else you wouldn’t be here. Still wordless, your initial response was to a change in a cell that split itself in two, we all did, and without thinking twice, made ourselves from scratch — heart, ears, eyes, brains, hair, and all.
Without water’s sky-high IQ, how could we have done it? I could be wrong as so many times before, but it doesn’t bother me. There’s a connect between the water within me and the water without. I can feel it. Knowledge has got nothing to do with it.
Do you feel it, too? I’d love to turn you on.
What if the rockets always take off into space without you? What if you never get a seat on an actual space flight?
Not to worry, 70% of you is more intelligent than anything we have a measure for. If it’s space travel you desire, your water will find a way, making sure that 70% of you will not miss out.
The other 30%, well, getting from A to B takes letting go of A, and when the time comes, that’s what those 30% will be about. Don’t sweat the small stuff. The water will stay with you, or you with your water, for forever and a day.
