Just A Suggestion On What We Should Aim For When Traveling To Another Galaxy

I’m no geek in space stuffs, but I like to watch Star Trek TV shows and movies sometimes.  Anyhow, whenever I see Star Trek’s spaceship such as the Enterprise, I dream that I could be on one.  In my opinion, space faring is very cool.

In reality, we can’t travel anywhere far away from our planet earth yet.  Sure, we can send robotic crafts to a distant planet, but such a planet would still be within our solar system.  Perhaps, making as far as the edge of our solar system is already a great achievement in our time.

Talking about space faring to a hospitable planet which resides in another galaxy is totally a fantasy still.  How come?  According to the Internet, the closest galaxy is like 25,000 light-years away.  Our human civilization might already be extinct by then if we’re not careful.

Traveling to another galaxy requires technology which we can only fantasize at the moment.  Warping in space is one of such technologies.  Another one is using a wormhole to take a shortcut in space.  These technologies require immense energy, and our current technologies are in no way near in having such advancements.

Nonetheless, if one day we can harness immense energy and know how to utilize such energy, I like to suggest that we should not build a spaceship like the Enterprise.  How come?  Such a spaceship is too small and not sustainable for generations of space faring creatures.

I think we should create a spaceship that is immense in size and has similar shape to earth.  Such a craft should be at least 1/3 of the earth size, because such a huge craft can sustain artificial ecosystems that are similar to earth.  This way, generations of space faring creatures can survive and thrive for a long time — making our way to another galaxy should be doable by then.

Such a craft may need a technology to harness the stars, and making such stars as if they’re the gas stations in space.  Warp and wormhole technologies are the must have technologies, because these technologies could aid in speeding up the journey to another galaxy.  Anyhow, as the human race advances, we may be able to see the children of much later generations to take on such a bold adventure — traveling to another galaxy.

Traveling Within A Network of Multiple Infinite Universes

With a pen and if you’re willing, you can write 0 and 1 into the infinity on an infinite, long paper.  With all of those 0s and 1s, you can basically form infinite patterns that represent whatever you want.  Our computer is much more complicate than using a pen to write down 0s and 1s pattern to form software, because it involves much more than just a pen.  Nonetheless, in theory, if a computer is strong enough, it can create 0s and 1s into the infinity to form a software of infinite.

In my mind, I imagine an infinitely strong computer as a universe.  The 0s and 1s — that form patterns — form up humans, planets, thoughts, and whatnot.  So in theory, if a computer as a universe that can write infinite amount of 0s and 1s without stopping, isn’t it creating an infinite universe?  Nonetheless, I can also imagine we have multiple infinitely strong computers which can create infinite 0s and 1s.  Isn’t this mean we have multiple infinite universes?  And if we can network these universes together in a Local Area Network, isn’t this allowing intelligent beings to travel between universes?  Just like data of 0s and 1s.

Although our existence is made of elements on periodic table, but how do we know the periodic table consists of all the possible elements there are in a universe?  After all, patterns can be formed infinitely in theory. We can already theoretically theorize how an infinitely strong computer can form infinite patterns with just 0s and 1s, and so it’s also possible for us to imagine the basic elements that form the higher elements can also multiply as if 0s and 1s, consequently forming infinite elemental forms within a universe.

I raise all sorts of interesting points about how infinite 0s and 1s can be, because I’m very curious of how infinite our universe would be.  Furthermore, I wonder is it possible that there are multiple if not infinite universes out there.  To go one step further, 0s and 1s existences in this universe are possible for there are those earliest basic elements that formed from the beginning of time since the birth of this universe.  This means, the universe herself probably is an expert in 0s and 1s.  I suspect the universe herself is infinite.  Nonetheless, if she is being networked within a web of universes, perhaps us intelligent beings (among others) are capable in traveling between multiple infinite universes in the future.
