I was writing something for a school assignment recently, and when I was proof-reading it, I found that, in my robot-like, emotionless focus, I wrote this.
Note: I have switched third-person for first-person.
“Nations would have to willingly cooperate with each other instead of “racing” to space. They would have to alter their budgets and spend much less on the military and more on space technologies. Sagan’s Pale Blue Dot is not an instruction manual on how to out-live our solar system, but a recommendation that we should start considering the fact that we must. He wrote that this begins at the most basic level – with letting children explore and develop a curiosity for the natural world without teacher instruction. Essentially, we all need to develop a sense of mild urgency about our finite future as a species on this planet.”
