The Chosen ONE....
    #4300153 - 06/15/05 05:57 PM (12 years, 10 days ago)

OK, a friendly species of FRIENDLY Extra Terrestrials come to Earth from lands far away, and have extended an offer to take ONE single person with them back to travel the universe and see the celestial sites, and the origins of their planet....   

Of course, the question would come up as to who would be the "best" suited person to take with them to "represent" our species.... 

And lets just say that no government would have control of the choosing of this person.... 

Who would be the best (willing) person to take on these travels....?

Would it be a Spiritual person, a knowledgeable Scientist, a kid Genius, an Artistic person, etc etc....?

You at least have the proper attitude, but would you face leaving Earth for a journey of many light years and possibly never return or return millenia after your species finally died out? Then there is the issue of surviving on a at least marginally inhospitable world and all of the inconveniance that it entails...for years at a time. You can have my spot...the food would probably suck...or you would be the food.

"A warrior is a hunter. He calculates everything. That's control. Once his calculations are over, he acts. He lets go. That's abandon. A warrior is not a leaf at the mercy of the wind. No one can push him; no one can make him do things against himself or against his better judgment. A warrior is tuned to survive, and he survives in the best of all possible fashions." ― Carlos Castaneda

but would you face leaving Earth for a journey of many light years

And this is a problem?

I'd jump at the chance in a nanosecond! Not only because of the explorer in me, but also because this planet is only going to get worse before it gets any better (if it hasn't already passed the point of no return).

Republican Values:

1) You can't get married to your spouse who is the same sex as you.
2) You can't have an abortion no matter how much you don't want a child.
3) You can't have a certain plant in your possession or you'll get locked up with a rapist and a murderer.

4) We need a smaller, less-intrusive government.

You should read Contact by Carl Sagan. It sorta deals with this.
