The free market and the quest for life on other planets


WASHINGTON, April 15, 2015 — Dwayne Brown recently opened his statements at a the “Solar System and Beyond: NASA’s search for water and habitable planets” discussion with three questions: “Could humankind perhaps be getting closer to answering where do we come from? Where are we going? Are we alone?”

That part of human civilization that respects knowledge is beginning to be able to answer these questions.

This respect for knowledge, for science and scientific methodology, led former astronaut and current associate administrator for the Science Mission Directorate at NASA John Grunsfeld to say, “In our quest to answer the question of are we alone in the universe, we are looking for other habitable environments besides here on earth of course, and we are seeing that environment in many different places.”

This exploration of space and of other life forms is only possible thanks to the free market. The two may seem unrelated, but they are actually intimately related.

The free market is a system that allows participation from anyone who wishes to participate. Realizing a true free market requires the best morals, the best judgment from all participants.

Bigotry is an idea that runs counter to a free market. Where there is bigotry, there never will be a free market; it is as simple as that. Bigotry leads to some members of a society feeling alienated and provides the opportunity for politicians to exploit this situation and introduce greater government involvement to the market. Instead of valuing ideas exclusively on their merit, you are biased toward some and away from others. Such actions means there is not one society but many hyphenated societies.

The free market says all must be treated equally. That means police officers must treat all citizens the same, and high-ranking politicians must also do so. There can be no favoritism, no elitism, no bigotry. Citizens must demand equality in all aspects. They must also protest when others are discriminated against. For the free market to work we need to obey the golden rule.

To fully explore space and to learn from whatever we may find, we must accept the truth without judgment, as one humanity. Bigotry drags humanity down to a lower level of thinking, while the free market raises us. The free markets allows easier convergence of knowledge and allows us to accept information from whatever its source. The free market respects knowledge and attempts to reward whoever brings that information forward.

All other systems either merely acknowledge the knowledge finder or discourage certain sections of society from looking for new knowledge by neither acknowledging them nor rewarding them simply because they are of a different race or ethnicity.

This was best exemplified by Donald Sterling, before he lost his basketball team. He publicly exhibited his bias, demonstrating that his world did not allow a true free market. He showed the ugly face that so many humans hide, that so many are biased against knowledge from sources that don’t look like them, don’t act like them, don’t sound like them. They don’t care whether the knowledge is superior or inferior, they simply ignore it because it does not come from the group they closely associate with.

Is this how we wish to encounter other life forms? Is this how we want to approach the possibility of knowledge from non-human sources? With a closed mind, biased against such information?

Einstein’s theories, especially those dealing with time, are the foundation for understanding dimensions. Manipulating dimensions are the only way to get to habitable planets around other stars. It is virtually impossible to reach other stars without manipulating dimensions. This is not the stuff of science fiction: different dimensions are all around us. Yet those who are bigoted against Jews continue to deny Einstein’s brilliance and his theories. They scoff at him, criticizing him for relying too much on logic and mathematics.

This is the world that denies knowledge, that closes the free market.

We are on the brink of finding other life in space. Dr. Ellen Stofan, head scientist for NASA, recently proclaimed, “Within all of our lifetimes, we are going to understand that there is life on other bodies in the solar system. We are going to understand the implications of that for evolution of life here on earth. We are going to find planets around other stars that we can say we see potential signs of habitability in their atmospheres. That is all going to happen in the next 20 to 30 years.”

This is a whole new economy that is going to open up. Do we want to continue with bigotry, causing unhappiness, tension, friction, bombs and the  desire to exterminate each other? At the end of the day, if we can not respect others, if we refuse to treat each other as equal, the only option is extermination.

As we enter the next age, the age where we may find life on other planets, it is time to accept a system that does away with bigotry and elitism. This is the best path for interaction, it is best for knowledge.

It is time to eliminate the bigotry and large government that blocks the free market and open our minds to possibilities.
