What is our human responsibility for dreaming BIG? And how can it affect the destiny of mankind when we do? Let us think on two examples - one describing our technological future, and the other our ecological future. Where each is wrapped up around the ideas of innovation and ambition, and each is as necessary as the air we breathe. For without dreams this world will die as surely by its own hands of societal strife and impotence as it will from the lack of caretake for its environment. But here, upon the moonscapes of nature can we find ourselves. Can we discover our furthest horizons. Can we see beyond all of our tomorrows that lay ahead of us. And there find the passion to impart a higher vision to humanity's imbalance within this universe of possibilities that God has given to us. For without dreams, without innovation, without passion and ambition, can nothing move forward as it should as if contained in a smog of confusion and distillation of the human spirit lost within its own short-sightedness and fury. Let us then, together, re-consider how the furthest frontiers of science might be probed. How we might together unite as global societies pursuing peace and international cooperation with one another. How we might together promote the boundless spaces of land, air, and water, to the furthest joys, and contentment causing the human spirit to soar over this our respite, this galactic isle, we call home. Seeking a global partnership of universal proportions committed to the preservation of the human spirit spawned upon the solar winds and clear flowing waters of hopes and dreams. It is what we have been created for in fellowship with the Triune God, our Creator-Redeemer, and Renewer of our souls.
