Space Force: A program already underway for decades, finally made public...

Would you travel to space if it became possible in your lifetime and it was an option?

Is it something you're interested in or would want to do?

Would you do it just for fun, on a return ticket? Or are you one of those peeps who would take a one-way ticket and be a pioneer?

Just wondering what your stance is on all this.

Personally...

If leisure space travel became widely available someday...

Heck, I'd probably go. But only after a shit ton of people had already done it and proven it's relatively safe.

Yes. Innerspace is vast and beautifully imaginative. It's possible with LSD/DMT/ETC. 
My mind: The Best / Space with Stars and Planets bound by physics : Meh..

Trip On Mars?
Trip On Acid...

Fear is the Mind Killer
Anyone else been drawn to Half Life 2 lately? 



The acoustic NLWs are getting alien-like in tech.

Is that a video game??

I recently saw a trailer for some other video game and the graphics were insane...

I don't really understand why graphics are such a big deal on video games, why people want them to look super "lifelike" or "real"...

I feel like what's fun about video games is that they're fantastical and they're not supposed to seem real.

I don't wanna play a video game with 'startlingly real' looking graphics... I want to feel like it's a game.

Probably an unpopular opinion though.

Half Life 2 had "revolutionary graphics" in 2003 but the game focus was primarily on the story. It had some mild puzzle solving areas in the game but mostly an FPS adventure with a dystopian future ran by collaborators who sided with "bad aliens." (Much like the basis for the plot of the television series "The Colony."

I agree, graphics aren't a big deal....unless you're playing Red Dead Redemption 2. Them cowboy sunsets as you're riding your horse through the forested mountains of the pacific north west. That game has good story as well. 

I agree with you on 'startling real' graphics. It's a bit uncomfortable looking at some of them because your brain keeps phasing from "Is this real or rendered?" over and over. Somewhat mesmerizing but distracting. 

Half Life 2 is an epic game in that the story is epic. Fans have been waiting almost 20 years for Half Life 3. 


We (the players) still don't know this 'G-Man' is in the game or how he uses technology to get
inside the protagonist's head.
