Purpose of Extraterrestrial Exploration

Someone asked the purpose behind extraterrestrial exploration.

THEIR PURPOSES ARE LEGION. SOME WORLDS ARE CROWDED, SOME CARE ONLY FOR EXPLORATION. OTHERS, SUCH AS THE WORLD WHERE OUR STUDENT (Soleal) LIVES, CARE ONLY FOR SPIRITUAL GROWTH. THERE IS MUCH CURIOSITY THROUGHOUT THIS GALAXY — CURIOSITY SUCH AS THE KIND THAT CREATURES OF REASON ON THIS WORLD EXHIBIT WHEN THEY TRY TO BREAK FROM THE PRISON OF THIS WORLD.

PLEASE DO NOT MISUNDERSTAND US. MERE CURIOSITY COULD NOT, OF COURSE, ACCOUNT FOR SUCH AN EXPENDITURE, BUT MANY TIMES IT SERVES AS AN IMPETUS IN THAT MANY WORLDS EXPLOIT THEIR TECHNOLOGIC STRENGTH ON THE BASIS OF UNREQUITED CURIOSITY.

EXPLORATION HAS ALWAYS APPEALED TO CREATURES OF REASON. AS SOON AS THEY LEARNED TO CONQUER THEIR NATIVE ENVIRONMENT AND SUBDUE IT SUFFICIENTLY TO INSURE LONG RANGE SURVIVAL, THEIR THOUGHTS AUTOMATICALLY TURNED TO THE STARS. AS THEIR TECHNOLOGIC MIGHT INCREASED, THEIR HORIZONS BROADENED. WE BELIEVE THAT THE MAN BERTRAND RUSSELL HIT UPON A BASIC TRUTH WHEN HE DESCRIBED THE “UTTER TERROR OF COSMIC LONELINESS” THAT MAN FEELS WHEN HE CONTEMPLATES THE COSMOS. MAN IS NOT ALONE IN THIS. ALL CREATURES OF REASON EXPERIENCE IT. IT IS PART OF THE EVOLUTIONARY PROCESS ON THE PHYSICAL PLANE, AND CANNOT BE AVOIDED.
CREATURES OF REASON, OF COURSE, RETAIN THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE PANDIMENSIONAL UNIVERSE WITHIN THEIR ESSENCES, AND AT A FAR DEEPER LEVEL THAN MOST, ARE IN CONTACT [with essence] AND RESENT THE LIMITATIONS PLACED UPON THEM BY THE PHYSICAL PLANE — THE ULTIMATE SPEED LIMIT, THE ULTIMATE THIS AND THAT IMPEDES THEIR PROGRESS — AND EVENTUALLY THEY REBEL AGAINST THIS AND LITERALLY BURST FROM THEIR FINITE PRISON INTO THE PANDIMENSIONAL UNIVERSE.

THIS ULTIMATELY BRINGS THEM IN CONTACT WITH OTHER CIVILIZATIONS, SOME OF WHICH ARE FAR BENEATH THEM ON THE EVOLUTIONARY SCALE. MOST OF THEM, BY THE TIME THEY HAVE REACHED THE STAGE IN WHICH THEY CAN TRAVEL BETWEEN THE STARS, CAN DETECT THE READINESS ON A WORLD FOR CONTACT. MOST HAVE ADEPTS WHO KNOW THIS LONG BEFORE THE VENTURE IS UNDERTAKEN.

BUT YOU ARE QUITE CORRECT — THERE ARE WORLDS THAT HAVE ADVANCED TECHNOLOGICALLY WITH NO PARALLEL SPIRITUAL DEVELOPMENT, AND THEY REPRESENT QUITE A SIZABLE NUMBER OF VISITORS TO THIS SECTOR OF THE SPIRAL ARM. THEY HAVE NO OTHER PURPOSE BEYOND EXPLORATION, AND CONTACT WITH THEM WOULD BE ARID, TO SAY THE LEAST.
