This short book grapples with two vast questions: the nature of our minds, and our place in the wider universe. It considers how one mutually influences the development of the other. The changes and challenges that will accompany the first humans to leave planet Earth and travel to another planet, or even further, will not only impact upon our technical capacities, but also represent a watershed moment within our individual and collective human psychology. Many of the problems of resource-use, environmental degradation, and waste or destructive processes are contained in the larger vision of exploring another environment and planet. But the book also offers a shift in perspective that allows us consider humanity from an alternative, more holistic perspective, reappraising our own minds both individually and within dynamic social processes. This book considers our place and purpose in the widest possible perspective, that of space exploration and the much wider natural universe. It doesn't seek to answer these questions, but to provide a perspective to explore even further.
