Now lead to the stars ...

I love to sail forbidden seas.
 — Herman Melville

________________________________________________________________________________________________

Sometime ago,
friends dissatisfied with society and religions asked me to help them build a new worldview for today,
    no longer a world of gods and goddesses, angels and demons, griffins and unicorns,
        but now a world of quarks and galaxies,  computers and DNA, even gigaparsecs of space-time ...

Building a new worldview for today requires a knowledge of science and technology.
Although I grew up in a world of science and technology many others do not know this world - yet.
So we embarked together on a survey of the science of the last 500 years, since Columbus sailed.

Come, my friends,  ’Tis not too late to seek a newer world.

Come, my friends,

’Tis not too late to seek a newer world.

Push off, and sitting well in order smite

The sounding furrows; for my purpose holds

To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths

Of all the western stars, until I die.

It may be that the gulfs will wash us down:

It may be we shall touch the Happy Isles,

And see the great Achilles, whom we knew.

Tho’ much is taken, much abides; and tho’

We are not now that strength which in old days

Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;

One equal temper of heroic hearts,

Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will

To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

          —  Tennyson.   .   .

I love to sail forbidden seas. — Herman Melville

NEWS & NOTES:

2017-09-22 : I decided to revise this site and write about what is coming soon,
                              . . . if we survive our bad monkey behavior !! : 
                         1: the singularity —  when our computers become smarter than us
                         2: the uploading —  when we take on electronic form and travel as pure thought.
