Go a few million parsecs out into space, turn around and come slowly back, looking around you carefully at the passing supernovas and black holes and galaxies, newborn and dying suns and blue, orange, green, red, yellow, ringed and striped planets, planets of every description, some of their gazillions upon infinitillions bearing life but most not, and as you drift back toward your own microscopic blue dot of a planet there in the far distance, ponder the things you have seen and all that they mean and imply, then upon your return take a look at all earth's archaically manmade, pompously homocentric holy books and the people who take them literally-- and who use them as justification for killing each other daily-- without thinking there must be a more intelligently inhabited planet out there somewhere...
