Departure / Detachment

Just a beautiful piece of music from Gattaca. It takes significant effort to detach from the usual cares of the world and spend time engaged in other domains of thought. Many people can't or won't, and they are the ones, the majority, who will always argue that emigrating to space will be too expensive, dangerous or simply pointless. It takes a strong effort to remember that you have to ignore those voices, and keep moving. Those people will say the same thing even as the first colonies past Pluto are flourishing, and even as a civilization-killing comet moves inexorably towards the Earth. Those voices, really, are already extinct.

Below the music link...a rough screen grab of the book title page...Very, very close to being done, now!
