Every Step You Take Makes Your Brain Grow

iving in reduced gravity atrophies nerves.

In the Matrix movie, we were offered either a red pill or a blue pill.

Now humanity is offered either gravity or atrophy.

Bare with me and I will fully explain this discoursive train of thought.

You go to space, and your muscles will shrink.

Until we develop antigravity space stations, we are basically doomed to become gray aliens.

It’s just a matter of logical fact.

Leave earth, and you will encounter either environments with zero gravity, or landscapes with less gravity than earth.

Do you want to become a being with a big brain, but an atrophied, whispy body?

Then you are a prime candidate for the next mission to Mars.

The Earth is our identity.

You go beyond that, and you risk becoming a breakoff species.

You will get isolated, and you will be too weak to land on earth and engage with earth beings.

Your body, your choice.
