“OUTER AND INNER SPACE EXPLORATIONS”:  UNDERSTANDING FRONTIER EXPERIENCES IMPLICATIONS FOR HUMAN GROWTH Dr. Kenneth J. Cox kcox12@houston.rr.com January 2004 “OUTER AND INNER SPACE EXPLORATIONS” DANCE OF THE PERMANENT WHITE WATER MANAGEMENT:  DANCE OF THE PERMANENT WHITE WATER MANAGEMENT THE FACTS We are living through a time of rapid, complex and fundamental change THE CHALLENGE FOR HUMANS Create a desired vision and provide leadership to attain that vision within diverse turbulent environments THE RESPONSE Individuals and organizations must adapt to emerging levels of complex and chaotic systems in order to mature relationships, and to identify and understand significant patterns of change DANCE OF THE PERMANENT WHITE WATER MANAGEMENT (CONT) :  DANCE OF THE PERMANENT WHITE WATER MANAGEMENT (CONT) THE FOCUS Integrity, congruence and discipline Intention, leadership and insight Adapting, unifying, sharing and risk taking Listening, looking, intuiting and reflecting Visioning, creating, innovating and inner growing THE APOLLO EXPERIENCE - A HISTORICAL CENTRAL PROJECT:  THE APOLLO EXPERIENCE - A HISTORICAL CENTRAL PROJECT Patterns of human experience Impact of weightlessness, silence and darkness An event horizon occurred when humanity experienced the vastness of outer space on the return lunar trip by viewing the earth as a beautiful blue and green silver planet floating in the womb of the cosmos Then, the vastness of inner space of the mind opened and was manifest as a higher level awareness and compassion for the well-being of the earth An enhanced understanding that everything is interconnected and interrelated began to unfold POST-APOLLO CHALLENGE :  POST-APOLLO CHALLENGE Build upon Apollo mission experiences and broad international science activities View defense, civil, and commercial domains as prime elements leading to the development of outer space Search for opportunities to interweave science, exploration, technology, development, education and infrastructure activities with Political and legal institutions Ecological sustainable systems Multidimensional community development In-depth understanding of human history Aesthetic systems - art, writing, music and movement AN EXPANDED PERCEPTION OF SPACE :  AN EXPANDED PERCEPTION OF SPACE Terrestrial space - Involving the basic elements of earth, fire, water and air Inner space - Individual aware beings at the mind level Outer/under space – Above and below the earth’s natural surfaces Relationship space - Aware beings interacting with each other, other life forms and all parts of the living universe Relationship space is an essential frontier Requires an understanding of relationships between parts and the whole of systems Modified universal symbols, myths, art and language forms will naturally evolve A VIEWPOINT ON SPACE :  A VIEWPOINT ON SPACE Transform the space program into an earth/space movement Settlements and personal adventure Science, commerce and ecology Holistic well being for elements of the earth Primary Domains Space Exploration - Destiny Driven Space Science - Discovery Driven Space Defense - Threat Driven Space Economics – Business/Market Driven Space Settlements - Human Genes Driven Earth/Space Sustainability - Survival Driven Space Culture – Aesthetics Driven THIRD MILLENNIUM STRATEGIC INTENTION:  THIRD MILLENNIUM STRATEGIC INTENTION Seek meaning and awareness for humankind in the ultimate frontiers of earth/space Live, work, and prosper in multiple solar system space communities Develop a human-energy presence beyond our “local galactic universe” Openly interact with “What’s out there” in the frontiers of outer space Nurture the growth of consciousness in earth/space SPACE CHALLENGES:  SPACE CHALLENGES Drive Towards An Integral Space Frontier Strategy Search for origins and life forms Sustain human life on the frontiers Understand dynamics between living entities and the regenerating universe Develop symbiotic relationships between humans and intelligent machines Evolve a frontier science of open systems ULTIMATE FRONTIERS:  ULTIMATE FRONTIERS Span of life activities - cellular to stellar Major domains Earth terrestrial space Inner space - human mind Outer and under space Relationship space Understand prime environmental drivers Human friendly – abundant water, air and fire Human hostile – radiation, gravity, vacuum and temperature/pressure extremes Future potentials for renaissance evolution Expanding into broader horizons Providing stewardship for future generations Discovering higher ground while enabling common ground NON-LINEAR SCIENCE:  NON-LINEAR SCIENCE Non-linear science – involves dynamic behavior of complex systems Characteristics associated with living systems Self organization processes Attractors that underlie and govern transitional and transformational behavior Bifurcation points where transformational change occur, leading to new life Chaos where irregular, unpredictable motions occur within a complex system Periodic motion that exhibits both simple and complex cycles Fractals where entities replicate, and discard things that are not their true essence self FUTURE INFLUENCE FACTORS:  FUTURE INFLUENCE FACTORS Simultaneously develop local/regional/national/global/universal commerce Shift from nation state “Cold Warriors” to market state “Trade Negotiators” Expand into information space with boundless communications Grow into enhanced levels of human mobility Expand open systems Fluid and layered boundaries Flexible human identities Multi-dimensional realms of reality SPACE DEVELOPMENT:  SPACE DEVELOPMENT Significant need to mature private and public sector relationships Establish plausible combinations of investment energies Initiate sensible public regulatory functions Develop vibrant and new methods of collaboration Understand potentials for frontier patterns of growth Future areas of focus Human capital systems involving research and engineering, education and development of diverse work force skills Policies to encourage multiple levels of free market businesses to effectively participate in the space frontier ventures MARKET DRIVEN STRATEGIES FOR VARYING ENVIRONMENTS :  MARKET DRIVEN STRATEGIES FOR VARYING ENVIRONMENTS Friendly environment - commercial markets with high volume Terrestrial applications Prime driver – private sector Secondary driver – public sector Semi-hostile environment - commercial markets with moderate volume Atmosphere and under water applications Drivers – blend of private and public sectors Hostile environment - commercial markets with low volume Outer space and deep under earth applications Prime driver – public sector Secondary driver – private sector STRATEGIC VIEWPOINTS :  STRATEGIC VIEWPOINTS Earth/space should be understood from a top down perspective similar to systems engineering, an innovative global business or an interdisciplinary academic institution Nanoscale technology, together with cosmic stellar technology will be key for future innovation Technologies of the small Technologies of the large Critical areas to better understand Surface interactions and layering concepts Fabrication under different environments – gravity, radiation, temperature and pressure Dark matter EARTH/SPACE TECHNOLOGY APPLICATIONS :  EARTH/SPACE TECHNOLOGY APPLICATIONS Human health and safety Nuclear propulsion and power Human/robotic operations - mining and constructing Energy harvesting systems – thermal electrics Manufacturing and fabrication Hostile environment space suits and local transport systems Solar power systems Magneto-plasma propulsion Habitation and transportation systems Nano scale research and technology Cosmic scale research and technology NEAR FRONTIER SPACE INFRASTRUCTURE:  NEAR FRONTIER SPACE INFRASTRUCTURE Initiate a phased development of near earth outposts including transportation hubs, maintenance facilities, platforms, and science and technology research facilities Develop upper stage vehicles for near earth transportation leading to exploration missions Mix and match human, cargo and robotic upper stage systems with available booster systems Perform operational science and technology tasks within the near earth environment BEYOND EARTH TO THE STARS:  BEYOND EARTH TO THE STARS Building a near earth infrastructure is key to robotic and human exploration and development of the inner solar system Collaborating between the civil, defense, and commercial space elements is vital Multidimensional communication, intelligence, learning, knowledge, wisdom and awareness are also key to opening additional frontiers of space Frontier strategies Opportunities for everyone Protect humans and other living entities Live off the land where feasible Progressively improve self sustainability UNFOLDING OF FRONTIERS:  UNFOLDING OF FRONTIERS Search for concepts of wholeness Evolve basic understanding of layering and connections Continue to expand a relevant science of reality External science involves matter Internal science involves mind Relationship science involves bridging and meaning SCENARIO PLANNING PROCESS:  SCENARIO PLANNING PROCESS Scenarios are one of the most effective tools available for systematically influencing and helping to shape the future Normative scenario planning is a way to develop imagination by telling a set of stories about what is happening, might happen and what is wanted to happen in the future These stories provide viable images of the future A well developed scenario process will produce a spectrum of plausible futures that effectively bracket the horizon Relevant stories are generally emergent and fact oriented, and help to evoke a set of choices EVOLUTIONARY RELATIONSHIP SPACE:  EVOLUTIONARY RELATIONSHIP SPACE Outer space adventures provide event horizons with extended points of view A cultural vitality council should be considered in order to support the development of harmonistic living relationships in the harsh space environments Such a council could solicit broad viewpoints and perspectives from anthropologists, psychologists, sociologists, philosophers, artists, writers, biologists, ecologists, folklorists, spiritual leaders, craft persons, historians and many others Slide22:  We must be pro-active in shaping the future for the space frontier elements Past driving forces have been intellectual curiosity, economics, defense, and religion Future driving forces will add universal entrepreneurs, high frontier adventurers including explorer artists and authors, and searchers for space resources. Relationship space dealing with “human capital” will be an emerging cultural frontier We also need to better understand the multi-generational planning from the past, including building cathedrals, pyramids and sacred sites TRANSFORMATION AND TRANSITION A DYNAMIC MODEL FOR THE REGENERATING UNIVERSE:  A DYNAMIC MODEL FOR THE REGENERATING UNIVERSE Develop vision around earth/space frontiers Establish innovative approaches for research Provide concrete actions for space development Invest in revolutionary science and technology Construct evolutionary space infrastructure Develop viable exploitation activities Invest in mature human capital Understand viable options for establishing communities in outer space BACKUP SLIDES:  BACKUP SLIDES Celebrations Quotations CELEBRATIONS - RECEIVING, HAVING AND GIVING:  CELEBRATIONS - RECEIVING, HAVING AND GIVING The dynamics of relationship space will be energized by Knowledge from verifiable measurements Learning and wisdom from engaged experiences Understanding from higher levels of awareness The matriculation of humanity will be enhanced as individuals Learn to grow into a mature relationship with the flowing universe Serve a cause greater than one’s self Discover who we are as we travel to broadened horizons CELEBRATIONS - DOING :  CELEBRATIONS - DOING It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, and comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievements, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat. Theodore Roosevelt, 1910 CELEBRATIONS - BEING:  CELEBRATIONS - BEING Live - to be well remembered Act - to be well evoked Love - to be well missed From the Mexican celebration of the day of the dead THE CREATIVE MASTER:  THE CREATIVE MASTER The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his life and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him, he is always doing both. James Michener ENDPOINT:  ENDPOINT We shall not cease from exploration and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time T.S. Eliot A TINY SEED:  A TINY SEED How can you think you are but a tiny seed, when within you are the secrets of the universe? Georgia Lesley FUTURE TASK:  FUTURE TASK As for the future, your task is not to foresee, but to enable it Antoine de Saint-Exupery
