Humans are probably the most influential species on this planet. Generation upon generation and decade upon decade has our knowledge and power been multiplying. To me that raises a question, what is that one thing this dominating lifeform needs in order to survive?

I’m sure we can agree that we don’t need to conduct any experiments to establish that food, water and shelter are our basic acidities, but what is that one thing we need to not only survive but thrive. In my opinion that one thing is exploration.

Exploration gives us our identities as innovative beings, it’s the one thing that makes us move out our comfort zones and obtain knowledge and experience about new and uncharted territory. Humans explored since our early origins-from discovering fire, colonizing the continents and placing our footprints on the moon. Who knows? Maybe exploration and curiosity will fuel our drive to one day colonize mars.

Let’s face it, without exploration we wouldn’t have airplanes, satellites or even the will to live. Heck! We wouldn’t even be humans, we would be two legged beings walking the earth like any other animal with no hope for what the future holds. Live would be pretty dull and boring.

For me exploration can be defined as a driving force empowering us to make life about living, not existing.

Let us release ourselves from this shackles that is routine and fear and go out into the world and explore. Our reputation of mankind depends on it.
