Humanity is hardwired for exploration. Perhaps it’s remeniscent of our times of hunting and gathering. Perhaps it’s latent curiosity. Perhaps it’s something else entirely. Either way, we are constantly seeking out new horizons. As the captain of the Enterprise used to say, “To seek out new worlds and new civilizations. To boldly go where no man has gone before.”
When you consider the vastness of our planet, and the brevity of our individual existence, wouldn’t it be inconceivable to not explore?
