I’ve had an interesting…meditation on this topic last night. For some context, I’m an avid reader about innovations in, and the future of, space exploration—though you know, certainly not an expert. I’ve always been fascinated by Timothy Leary’s belief regarding humanity’s destiny being in the stars, “Starseed.”

In his book Musings On Human Metamorphosis, Leary writes:

“Migration is nature’s classic solution to overpopulation, scarcity, and competition. When humanity begins to work for extraterrestrial migration, the competition for material acquisition will gradually diminish because unlimited space, energy, and resources await in the solar system.”

And I have…until yesterday night…really agreed with Leary on this point.

But.

Dr. Stephen Strange: I’m not ready.
The Ancient One: No one ever is. We don’t get to choose our time.

On your journey of spiritual development, you might find it helpful to have role-models—archetypes—to pattern yourself after. While the annals of “real-life” esotericism are filled with possible heroes & heroines to emulate, you could just as well take the pop-cultural route.
