We are all Explorers

I’m just trying to put my thoughts in front of you all on exploration, its importance and why do we explore? I’m not writing any fundamental things about exploration and what we should explore and how should we explore. I don’t think that telling this kind of things make any sense as this topic is individualistic and too broader to explain. I’m not even trying to convince anyone that we should explore the things around us or the things which are out of our reach. I’m just expressing my own views on this topic, that’s all! Some of you might agree with my thoughts fully, some of you might agree to some extent and some of you might not agree with me at all. In any case, if you wish then you can add your comments or thoughts after reading this post. So here I go!

It’s cool to be the first one to go where no one else has been before. Don’t you think that? HAHA! In my perspective, we are all explorer, including all other living beings. Exploration is much more than going to a place where no one else has been before. Exploration is a basic instinct to survive. Exploration is a way to deepen the mysteries, it’s a way to understand this world and the whole universe. Exploration provides purpose, seeks purpose and defines it. With exploration we become and we are always becoming. We are all explorers, we are all seekers. We keep on exploring things around us and sometimes we didn’t even notice that we are exploring something, something which is around us or maybe not. Our mind is always ready to explore the things, we just have to put our will and have to discover our area of interest. When you travel to a place where you haven’t been before then what comes in your mind? Don’t you want to explore that place? Don’t you want to find out what’s there in that place? Exploration is always followed by curiosity; curiosity is a trait of exploration. When we explore something it certainly raises some newer questions in our mind and to find the answers we have to explore more till we get our answers. The more we explore the more we learn and the more we gain knowledge.

Exploration has no limit. Some people like to explore their imagination by looking at all the angles of their imagination. Exploration can be of any type and it can be anywhere, like a person walking down a beautiful park full of people and then that person tries to explore that area automatically, that person tries to explore its every parts with some different perspective and gaining some knowledge from it. Some people tries to explore the world by taking photographs of the world around them. Exploration can be physical, it can be mental or it can be anything. Some people tries to explore themselves and some tries to explore the world by traveling to different places. For exploring anything, it doesn’t matter that our hands can reach that place or not, our eyes can see it or not and our bodies can travel there or not. We are always fascinated by the universe and therefore, we always try to explore it and it doesn’t matter whether we can reach out there or not, we will still be exploring it like always. Some people like to explore the laws of universe, physics and other. There is always something you can explore about the laws of universe and physics. Who knows, one day these laws might fall but for now, they are still what make our universe go round.

There is a special kind of pleasure we get from exploration. Going out to a some place and then returning back to the home but by some other route which is unknown to you and this will makes us feel good that there is another way to return back to the home and that’s what exploration can teach us. Exploration is the ability we have which let us to see beyond our horizon and beyond ourselves to ensure a future for our civilization. Exploration is in are thoughts, it’s in our behavior, it’s in the behavior of all the living beings. Our civilization will one day may live on Mars and beyond when we will run out of resources on Earth or maybe we will find some other alternative ways or things. So one have to explore to find new resources and areas which will help us to survive anywhere whether on this planet or on somewhere else. By exploration, one day we may find out the answers to some of the questions about our own origins. How did life begin on Earth? Is there life on any other planet? How did the universe originally form? How did the moon, our planet and the other originally form? Exploration has no limit, from microscopic to the macroscopic, from ocean to the universe, from bacteria to the space, all are in the field of exploration.

late at night…

late at night, a gentle rain with lighting in the sky, sitting nearer to the window, a gentle touch of a cool breeze on the face, a cup of hot coffee and a melodic post-rock music. Ah! Isn’t it a perfect combination to do some writing?  I guess, it’s a perfect combination to do anything worth to do in this kind of moments 🙂
