Look, whatever is lying at the bottom of the Baltic Sea is not the Millennium Falcon. Maybe it is some old Russian warships. Maybe it is an odd cluster of petrified wood. Maybe it's, well, nothing. However, the story that a very large and spherical object has been spotted at the bottom of those murky depths and awaits closer scrutiny has taken the internet by storm.
This got me thinking...
We are several thousand years passed the supposed weeping of Alexander for lack of "worlds to conquer."
We seem to need, as a species, undiscovered country. Newness. Strange and uplifting wonder. There has to be more in the shadows or the shadows lose there meaning.
So. Fire away, engage in fantastic conjecture and, above all else, enjoy.
