To the curious, welcome.
Two Worlds is divided into My World (my personal page) and the Other World (my communication
Scroll down a bit to find a section highlighting content found elsewhere on Two Worlds. Beneath
that is the Ambient Sector:
a section devoted to the science, technology, and people who explore the observable universe. By
the way, I know absolutely
nothing about Astrophysics, Data Science, Cosmology, Instrumentation, Exoplanets, or anything
else. However, I do have a PhD in wonder and enthusiasm.
My personal/professional philosophy for connecting with people is simple. With all philosophical
pretense stripped away, a Stanley Kubrick quote says it best,
"However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light." The essence for the Two Worlds brand
is the connecting or overlapping 'Os' in two worlds. Secondly, the alien green color palette.
My troglodytic hunch says conscious entities on exoplanets would also recognize the universal
meaning of alien green.
Ultimately, Two Worlds is eclipsed by a simple insight into the human experience that each of us
knows but often forgets.
We simply want to share our story; To send out a transmission with the hope someone, somewhere
picks it up and sees a reflection.

Stanley Kubrick quote

There was a pizza joint on Robson Street in the early 90s. Can't recall the name but they enjoyed success
for a few years making largely forgettable pizza. Their logo, which sat above the doorway and window, spanned the storefront exterior.
Underneath the logo was a horizontal news scroll -- red dots on black background. Some context: This
was pre Internet. Even CNN hadn't fully abused news scrolls yet. So they were novel to the pedestrian eye.
This pizza joint's news scroll had stuff that would make you stop and do a double-take. It bascially consisted of a series of unrelated stream-of-consciousness sentences, observations, phrases. These expressions were so odd,
so arresting to the average pedestrian. They had nothing to do with pizza. Then a most remarkable sensation washed
over you: Recognition. This type of stream-of-consciousness was the stuff one always finds flitting around
ones' mind during the day.
True. It happened here on earth.
I get overwhelmed with
a sense of feeling great to be alive when looking at mission
photos or reading background on the people who have shaped history; Feel awestruck and
inspired by the ambition, commitment and scientific achievement.
NASA and SpaceX
are where it's at!
Vandi Verma, an engineer who now works with
Mars rover, is seen here
working as a driver for the Curiosity rover.
The special 3D glasses she's wearing are still used by rover drivers to easily
changes in terrain that the rover may need to avoid.
A key objective for Perseverance's mission
astrobiology, including the search for signs of ancient microbial
life. The rover will characterize the planet's geology and past climate, pave the
for human exploration of the Red Planet, and be the first
mission to collect and cache Martian rock and regolith (broken rock and dust).
Subsequent NASA missions, in cooperation with ESA (European Space Agency), would
spacecraft to Mars to collect these sealed samples from the
surface and return them to Earth for in-depth analysis.
The Mars 2020 Perseverance mission is part of NASA's Moon to Mars exploration
which includes Artemis missions to the Moon that will help
prepare for human exploration of the Red Planet.
JPL, which is managed for NASA by Caltech in Pasadena, California, built and manages
operations of the Perseverance rover.

Pink Medicine dovetails perfectly with my conception of
traveling through the cosmos. It was created by, Bearson,
a spooky talented DJ from Norway. The song was barely audible when it first
caught my ear
morning bustle of a coffee shop.
That's what I'm talkin' 'bout!
Some singers I love: Dean Martin, Robert Gordon, Robin Zander,
Felix Cavaliere, Lowell George, Nat King Cole, Lou Gramm.
If sound could travel through space, and I had to pick one singer whose voice would
be sent out into the boundless dark searching for a connection, it would be Tom
The clarity, passion and power of Jones would persuade others conscious entities
means what we say and we come from a good place. Seriously though, those pipes at
NASA is looking outside for
increasing astronaut psychological well-being. Companies like SpaceX, Blue
Virgin Galactic will be consulted for this initiative. Being awestuck as
an astronaut is one thing. Being awestruck or One-with-the-Universe as your garden
schmuck, like me, is another matter.
But I think I've discovered a solution: the Intergalactic Mellow Suspension. All you
need to do
to achieve psychological well-being or feeling One-with-the-Universe is click each icon,
resulting vibe and you'll be good-to-go. Ooooommmmm...veggie...
"The thing that really surprised me was that it [Earth] projected an air of
fragility. And why, I don't know. I don't know to this day. I had a feeling
it's tiny, it's shiny, it's beautiful, it's home, and it's fragile."
— Michael Collins
NASA astronaut Ron Garan explains this incredible feeling in his book,
"The Orbital Perspective." After clamping into an end of a robotic arm on
the International Space Station in 2008, he flew through a "Windshield
maneuver that flung him in an arc over the space station and back:
"As I approached the top of this arc, it was as if time stood still, and I
flooded with both emotion and awareness. But as I looked down at the Earth —
stunning, fragile oasis, this island that has been given to us, and that has
all life from the harshness of space — a sadness came over me, and I was hit
with an undeniable, sobering contradiction."
