Dare to Dream a Different Dream

Richard Branson made history recently by talking his first trip into space. The whole world seems to be applauding his efforts. To borrow a song lyric from Three Dog Night: "One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do".

Perhaps. But sometimes one is the only number that you can do. You hear a different drummer and nobody is stepping to the beat but you! It happens.

So far there is Richard Branson, Jeff Bezos, and Elon Musk dreaming of space.

Mr. Branson, along with Mr. Bezos and Mr. Musk, the civilian space explorers, adventurers, pioneers, visonaries ... whatever you want to call them are dreaming while ... I am having nightmares!

Someone at Noise.Cash asked me if I never dreamed of going into space. Never? Below is my response. I am going to repeat because it bears repeating. Even though I may be the only ONE person who thinks this way. it's my story and I'm sticking to it!

Have I ever dreamed of going into outer space?

NO. That was not one of my dreams. When I grew up and realized that space rockets had punctured the ozone layer which was protecting this planet from the harmful rays of sun and NOW we have climate change and the earth is “melting”, I really don't dream of it.

Let me put it this way. Say you leave your home and go for an outing in your car. As you drive off, out of the back your car comes noxious fumes and fire. You ignore that and go have a happy time. When you come back, your entire home has been destroyed by the destructive chemicals that came out of the back of your car. You no longer have a home. But that car ride sure was fun!!

Hold on because I'm not finished with my analogies.

When Noah built the ark, the only people who were saved from the flood was his family because they believed him and got in the boat with him. Others could have been saved if they had entered the ark. But they did not believe and chose not to.

These billionaires are building a “sort of ark”. But do you know who gets to go in the ark with them? The people they choose! OR … The ones who can pay for a ticket!! OR ... some lucky bloke who WINS a ticket! Those are the ones who will be saved to move to another planet.

Whether you're a believer or dreamer, it doesn't matter. If you're not among the chosen or the paying passengers or one of the lucky ones … YOU'RE SCREWED!!

As you can see I do dream (or have nightmares). I dream really crazy dreams of a whole bunch of people getting left on a planet that's been almost destroyed by billionaires with their toys while they get to ride off to “New Happyland Acres”.

Every day is Earth Day.

The End.

Amen to this! I totally agree with you. They're just destroying the ozone layer every time they explore space, just for seeking life on those lifeless planets.

I really don't expect my voice or my words to change anybody's mind. These people have already invested heavily in their business ventures so they can have their adventures. But I still feel compelled to speak out.

You're just doing the right thing. My aspiring environmentalist classmates once posted a petition on change.org about this also. It's just a little move but at least we speak our minds.
