Space exploration for introverts

As The Only Ones sang on their hit record ‘Another Girl, Another Planet,’ “Space travel’s in my blood. There ain’t nothing I can do about it.”

Previous generations heard the call of the horizon and the siren song of the sea. If they wanted to walk out of their old lives, they could embark on a new life of adventure in far away lands of opportunity.

I hear the call of space. The universe is so HUGE that it seems a terrible waste not to see as much of it as we can.

When I feel overwhelmed by the world, I dream of being alone in a vast starship, far out in uncharted space, with nothing but vacuum (and the occasional hydrogen atom) for light years in any direction.

Introversion expressed through exploration.

  1. I have an ambient noise video downloaded from YouTube that just plays a thrumming spaceship engine noise, I sometimes use it to fall asleep or if I’m feeling anxious and I just lie on my bed, eyes closed imagining I’m lying in my own sleeping quarters aboard a small ship somewhere out there.
