dc.description.abstract "Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon and the truth." - BUDDHA You are on a ship floating in the vast ocean of space. You can fly to the moon and back. And on the moon you sing to break the silence and dance with melodies of music and gaze upon the vastness of space. You find yourself in between the past and the future. Living within Earth Bound Dreams. For fortnights of Light and fortnights of Darkness you are floating inside the vast voids of the soul. With dreams of tomorrow drifting gently across of the universe. Our dreams shape realities and our knowledge challenges space and time, with inspirations and exposures into the known and the unknown. Experiences define us and in turn are reflected in our actions. The human mind, the world of dreams – The Brain – drives cars, calculates complex math problems, draws comic fantasies, writes literary wonders, measures distances, cooks fancy dishes, dances with music and sings to make sense of it all; we remember and we forget; we forge the future, reconstruct the past and govern the present. We work collectively and display cognitive attitude. We reveal emotions and expose craziness. We transform with experiences. We are the bridge between the dream world and the reality of it all. We are Humane. Nevertheless look at what we have achieved. We have analysed the globe and beyond in search of the blueprint of the universe to know about ourselves, why we are and who we are. We have found ways to mimic ourselves by constructing machines and enter other thresholds of existence, creating new layers of possibilities. That is, in an era where human population is growing in an exponential rate, and we are aided by technology for global, climatic, spiritual, political and individual transformations. The bridge, silver lining, between war and peace is hence forever constant and in contrast. We humans are the agent of order and change. I started this project as a conceptual experimentation and evolution on self, investigating into ones core; important for the future generations to dream for themselves under the reflection of the moon, and unlock their creative potential; which will continue with top down, bottom up, qualitative and quantitative background study of Outer Space, Lunar Architectural Analysis, Human Anthropometry and Biomechanics in artificial gravity, Human Psychology, Geometric Analysis and Transformation of Form and Function. One must make great leaps to unlock oneself, of human nature and of one’s creative potential. The results unfold through the course of time. Future design solutions can be prepared based on the studies made in this paper. Please refer to the bibliography for expanded information on this research. Should we return to the Moon, is a decision beyond one man‘s comprehension. But that doesn‘t stop one from dreaming. en_US
