Space Renaissance and Spirituality — April 25th 2021

Posted by in categories: alien life, government, internet

Watch the Webinar “Space Renaissance and Spirituality”, held yesterday April 25th 2021.


The webinar “The Space Renaissance and Spirituality” discusses another, often neglected, primary need of humans: spirituality. Spirituality animated human deep feeelings and culture since the very ancient times of our history on our mother planet, Earth. Spirituality is a feeling that characterizes us, as human beings, and cannot be felt by other sentient but not self-aware and less intelligent species. Spirituality suggests reverence for life and great appreciation for the highest expression of nature: the intelligent life.
The Webinar Series are done in the frame of 2021 Space Renaissance Congress “The Civilian Space Development”.

Some introductory questions to the panelists:
- Spirituality, and religion, animated human efforts during the whole human history.
- Religions were often used as a sectarian flag, to motivate wars, conquers and ethnic cleansing anti-human acampaigns.
- However, at the dawn of expansion into outer space, humans feel the need to cultivate spirituality — both as individuals and communities — facing the magnificent mistery of the Universe.
- In the same time, a mature open spirituality could be a wonderful synergystic alliedm with science and philosophy, helping to motivate the profund evolutionary impulse to expand Earthly bioma into the Solar System and beyond.
- The original meaning of the term Religion, from Latin language, is religere=joining efforts, and can be related to both theist and secular communities.
- Should space advocacies include spirituality in their public outreach and discussion?
- If yes, how to avoid this message to be confused with irrational, new ageist and fake metaphysics, so common in the web age?
- Which are the common shared deep humanist concepts and ideals, among some currents, such as Astronautic Humanism, Astronism, Cosmodeism, and some theist and non theist Religions?
- The aim of this discussion shouldn’t be a game among different spiritual currents, but a first effort to share and put together some agreed concepts and believes, for the sake of the space renaissance, a true and urgent well motivated strategy of space settlement.
