Humans are designed with curiosity. We want to know what is over the hill, on top of the mountain, or across the seas. Our desire to reach into space and dive to the deepest depths of the ocean actually fuels our curiosity to go farther. We have had this desire since our earliest days, and there is no sign of slowing down.
We do need to remember, finding lands that are not populated allows us to inhabit them with our customs and laws. When someone else lives on those lands, whether we knew the area existed or not, the property is theirs and not up for grabs. We would have a problem if a space explorer showed up and tried to claim the Earth for its galactic empire.
This weekend is dedicated to Columbus, who failed in making it to India, and yet happened to stumble over some tropical islands on the outskirts of a couple of continents. We also remember the native inhabitants that were there to greet him and the Vikings who found some of the northern continent. These people did boldly go out and discovered lands with a lot of different peoples, who may not have realized Europe existed.
It is always good to learn. It is a basic tenet in growing as a person. To do so, we need to get out and see what is around us and what it actually means. Remember, the whole goal of new inventions, ideas, and thought processes are explorations into what is next. You need to understand what they are and know if they will help you with your quests or not.
Not all that is new is the right fit for everyone. That which succeeds and has staying power are the items that fill our needs and help us to advance our plans and goals. Those that do not are the ones that tend to fall by the wayside.
Thank you for being with me today. I hope to be with you again soon.
