I have read that Time magazine asked Charles Lindbergh,the famous aviator,his views regarding the future of space exploration which had then just got under way, both by USA and the USSR. He replied that he was confident that Man will land on Moon and will also travel to Mars in the foreseable future. But,the more important journey,according to him was not into outer space but into inner space. He said that Man had not even started on that journey. Actually both in the west and the east, many had travelled that way,some the full distance, some part of the way. Many had described the journey and also prepared the road maps. This was in the philosophic and religious domains. Nowadays it is said that even Neuroscience had made great strides in its studies of the brain. So,Man is journeying into inner space from two separate directions. What are your views reg.i) whether our inward journey is more important than the the space exploration? And more resources need to be diverted towards the inward journey? ii) which is the more promising of the two directions of the inward journey? iii) what are the benefits to us as a race of the inward journey,if any?
