human survival

In his unveiling of a plan to build the infrastructure for a path toward the eventual human settlement of space, Jeff Bezos framed his argument for the necessity of such efforts with this rhetorical question: “Do we want stasis and rationing or do we want dynamism and growth?”

I wonder: Is there a third option? Is there a way to inspire investment in long-term human survival that doesn’t stem from a narrative of fright and scarcity? Wherever we are, on planets or in pods, is there a way to engage the spiritual practice of living in mindful and balanced relationship with the elements required to sustain us? Is there an option that doesn’t pit our exhales against our inhales, but that inspires us instead to form a robust relationship with our breath?
