Getting Spaced Out & Tuned In

Avi Loeb is a Baby Universe unto himself ... borne of appropriate measures of exploratory wonder and scientific pragmatism which characterise his "Space Archaeologist". His notion of extra terrestrial possibility is devoid of Hollywood's tendency to infantalise Space; successfully exported to the masses but perhaps detrimental to a bonafide mobilised-globalised Scientific quest. Civilisation's hunger to know its origins vis a vis "out there" is as basic as Magellan's discovery of a new world right here. Until we WISH to find something, we probably won't. Avi is an adept pilot, steering us beyond the realm of Ego & Specialness to a humble Earth ... one which outstretches its young arms to that of the grander Cosmos with hopes of learning and growing its (healthier) self. Getting Spaced Out & Tuned for these 57 minutes is well worth the ride.
