on the Moon
11 was the first mission in which humans walked on the lunar surface
and returned to Earth.”
11 Mission Summary
is a common belief that it is possible for a human being to live on
the Moon in a spacesuit, just as it is possible to live under water in
a diving suit. Most people forget completely, however, that if one
dives to a great depth one remains on the Earth but that if one flies
in a spaceship sufficiently far away in the direction of the Moon one
thereby loses his connection with the Earth. In a film from Hollywood
it is no problem for a man in a spacesuit to set a flag on the Moon
and to leave a human footprint. In reality however, it is impossible
to do this.
a man falls asleep in the night, he loses consciousness of his
physical body, and he then has no idea what is going on with his body.
Nevertheless it happens as if by a miracle that a man wakes up
refreshed and reinvigorated. He owes to the Earth the miracle that he
finds his physical body reinvigorated in the morning, for the simple
reason that his physical body is a part of the Earth. If this "part
of the Earth" were removed far enough so that the Earth could not
sustain this human physical body, the man would first lose his
consciousness and then die. A walk on the Moon in a spacesuit is
possible in Hollywood, but not in reality.
launch a spaceship to a space station is expensive; however it would
not be much more expensive than to fly in the direction of Moon until
a human being loses his connection with the Earth. This latter
space-flight would test the law that the physical body of the human
being is part of the Earth and that without connection with the Earth
his physical body is not able to live. The reason why the Apollo
missions were cancelled was not the cost, but the failure to land on
the Moon in reality. The film, however, was represented as evidence of
the success of the Apollo mission. It is not then a wonder, that years
since the first successful landing of this "Hollywood on the
Moon", no human being in a spacesuit successfully walked on the
Moon in reality.
a man comprehends that his physical body is an inseparable part of the
Earth, that he owes his
physical consciousness to the Earth, then he also realizes that the Earth itself is a
living being which has an awareness of each of
its parts, and he begins to love the Earth
itself and other humans consciously.
is a general idea that people must accept, if they do not want to live
with ideas from Hollywood but with ideas from reality.
