I remember very well, as a boy of thirteen, watching Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey for the first time, and thinking, during the opening sequence showing an alignment of sun, moon, and Earth: How peaceful Earth seems from so far away, and how different this perspective is from what I'll experience when I go home and watch CBS News to hear the nightly Vietnam War body count from Walter Cronkite. 

How odd that Heaven can be a matter of scale, or the face of Hell may be hid by the aspect of dreaming beauty.

This quote is one of the greatest things I've ever read.

I read this quote after seeing the Atlantis launch (I cried, truly, from the sheer beauty of it)...thank you for rendering it so beautifully. Definitely a fave!

Speaking as a political science major, good God does this quote speak truth.

And on a bit more of a technical basis, I love the layout and especially the color combination - it's not one I see often, and it grabbed my attention right away. :D

I took an international politics course and got an A; I know nothing more now than I did before I took the class. Complete waste of time and money.

If it weren't for politics - and quite stupid instance of politics at that - he would never land on the moon and would not get a chance to have this pretentious epiphany. Love the design though.

It's also true that many useful things were invented during WWII, but that doesn't mean we should praise the war.
Thanks for loving the design though.

You don't stop wars from occurring by saying pretentious bullshit about politicians. Politicians are there because people have vital interests that often produce conflicts. Politicians are the ones we have to try and deal with these conflicts. It's childish to think that the conflicts would not be there had there been no politicians. It's like saying that without doctors there would be no diseases. There can be bad doctors and there can be bad politicians, it's a legitimate topic for discussion (if one wants to discuss these things). But that's not what he does - he is a soldier (because astronauts were elite soldiers) playing a key role in arms race, who suddenly becomes a pacifist on the orbit. He then fails to notice his crucial role in the problem he's describing (how much money it cost to put him on the moon, weren't there perhaps better things to do with the money) and blames "the petty politicians". And what does he come up with? A line from a cheap B-movie.

Don't worry, you'll grow up one day. Being a teenager who wants everyone to be happy and just be friends is in fact adorable. Just do your best to express your views in front of other like-minded teenagers. Otherwise it gets embarassing.

You mean more embarrassing than someone who constantly berates people and overuses the word pretentious?
koteria's avatar
Yes, I meant more embarrassing than that. In fact, studies by top scholars have shown that using the word 'pretentious' more than once in a discussion is not embarrassing at all. As for berating people: If you care to look at the conversation we've had, you'll see that first I made my point, then you misinterpreted it as an endorsement of warfare. I then elaborated on my point to explain the misunderstanding, to which your reply was 'whatever'. That is not a polite response to someone who has taken their time to make his point more clear.
