The milky way
A galaxy, home of countless unique stars and a whole host of enthralling miracles. Wonders referred to as natural phenomena but we barely start to understand the complexity of laws and interactions behind them.
The cradle of Humankind.
Humanity set forth it's epic journey full of detours and doubles far in the ancient past. We paid dearly for our mistakes and sins against the galaxy and planets embracing us. Our acts against sentient species sharing this small region of the vast universe with us took their heavy toll on Humanity as well. Selfish conflicts and techniques for power as an end in itself were deliberately confused with fostering competition and coordination, functions in fact crucial for furthering our development.
Our voyage never lacked in challenges: we struggled with the elements. We tried to overcome our hardships due to the limits of our understanding of the universe. We had to keep going exposed to forces greater than us and beyond our control. Humanity is a fascinating race though.We call struggles by their right name: challenges. We consider challeges to be cure against inaction, stagnation and decline. There is no land barren enough to stop us from trying to cultivate it to provide our families with food and to avoid starvation. We excavate ores and materials from the dusty tunnels of planetary Abysses or deserted asteroid fields to transform them to majestic structures that ensure our survival in the cold depths of space. We defy the heat of smouldering smelters day by day if the need arises.
Step by step we tenaciously uncover mysteries of the galaxy and we mobilize our new insights to further our goals. We don't grow complacent. We fight for our survival so we can fight for our families. Should our families' safety be secured we might work together with and for our communities. If the community is flourishing then we did our best to safeguarding our families and future. Strong communities make such perspectives, opportunities and level of security attainable that an individual alone might never dream of. The building blocks of a strong community are dedicated individuals and the community provides conditions for the individuals to fully utilize their talents and unleash their creativity.
