Space has not changed but technology has, in many cases, improved dramatically. A good example is digital technology where today's cell phones are far more powerful than the computers on the Apollo Command Module and Lunar Module that we used to navigate to the moon and operate all the spacecraft control systems.
For tribal man space was the uncontrollable mystery. For technological man it is time that occupies the same role.
Happy those early days when I Shined in my Angel-infancy. Before I understood this place Appointed for my second race, Or taught my soul to fancy aught But a white, celestial thought; When yet I had not walked above A mile or two from my first love, And looking back (at that short space) Could see a glimpse of His bright face. When on some gilded cloud or flower My gazing soul would dwell an hour And in those weaker glories spy Some shadows of eternity.Henry Vaughan
The Earth is cylindrical, three times as wide as it is deep, and only the upper part is inhabited. But this Earth is isolated in space, and the sky is a complete sphere in the center of which is located, unsupported, our cylinder, the Earth, situated at an equal distance from all the points of the sky.anaximander
He got used early to the adulation of a wide public and eventually decided that he could do without it; long before the end, fame had to chase him far harder than he chased it. But among his fellow practitioners his lustre was undimmed, unequalled. and unchallenged. ... Just as the astronauts riding up on their rockets all worshipped Chuck Yeager, the jet pilot who never joined them in space because he flew too well with wings, so the media millionaires all knew that Cook was the unsurpassable precursor who had done it all before they did, and done it better.Peter Cook
We notice as the Bible goes on, the area of scared space shrinks.Northrop Frye
The vestiges of the bicameral mind do not exist in any empty psychological space.julian jaynes
The purpose of architecture is to transmute the emptiness into space, that is into something which our minds can grasp as an organized unity.el lissitsky
First of all, directing is an idea that you have of a total flow of images that are going on, which are incidentally actors, words, and objects in space. It's an idea you have of yourself, like the idea you have of your own personality which finds its best representation in the world in terms of specific flows of imaginary images. That's what directing is.abraham polonsky
We put a monkey up in space / and I know exactly how he felt / looking at a lattice work of stars / missing his brothers back home too much for a postcardblake schwarzenbach
By speaking of space as an Idea, I intend to imply...that the apprehension of objects as existing in space, and of the relations of position, &c., prevailing among them, is not a consequence of experience, but a result of a peculiar constitution and activity of the mind, which is independent of all experience in its origin, though constantly combined with experience in its exercise.william whewell
A somewhat casual observer from outer space might well deduce that the course of evolution in this planet had produced a species of large four-wheeled bugs with detachable brains; peculiar animals which rested when they sent their brains away from them but performed in rather predictable manner when their brains were recalled.kenneth boulding
If a lack of money had prevented people from improving their lot, then mankind would still be living in the caves: unless you believe that investment capital first arrived from outer space.anthony daniels
The economic function of space industrialization is to generate jobs on Earth, not in space.krafft arnold ehricke
The accumulation of capital and misery go hand in hand, concentrated in space.david harvey
His epitaph, written by himself (translation): Man will not always stay on Earth; the pursuit of light and space will lead him to penetrate the bounds of the atmosphere, timidly at first, but in the end to conquer the whole of solar space.konstantin eduardovich tsiolkovsky
Keep a little space in your heart for the improbable. You won't regret it.Elizabeth warren
The diamond's virtues well might grace The epigram, and both excel In brilliancy in smallest space, And power to cut as well.
Though he lives in the conditionings ( Upadhis ), he, the contemplative one, remains ever unconcerned with anything or he may move about like the wind , perfectly unattached. On the destruction of the Upadhis, the contemplative one is totally absorbed in " Vishnu ", the All-pervading Spirit, like water into water, space into space and light into light. Realise That to be Brahman , the attainment of which leaves nothing more to be attained, the blessedness of which leaves no other blessing to be desired and the knowledge of which leaves nothing more to be known.
Methought little space 'tween those hills intervened, But nearer, more lofty, more shaggy they seemed. The clouds o'er their summits they calmly did rest, And hung on the ether's invisible breast; Than the vapours of earth they seemed purer, more bright, Oh! could they be clouds? 'Twas the necklace of night.john ruskin
The one infinite is perfect , in simplicity , of itself, absolutely, nor can aught be greater or better, This is the one Whole, God , universal Nature , occupying all space, of whom naught but infinity can give the perfect image or semblance.
space and light and order. Those are the things that men need just as much as they need bread or a place to sleep.le corbusier
