I don't want to hijack the thread, but I had the thought of 'leaving' Earth behind as we 'evolve'. I'm not talking simple human space travel, but metaphysical, and spiritual as well.

The concept in my mind's eye, would be similar to how I view my young childhood, I've got the memories, and some of the deep emotional reactions from that time period, yet I no longer really relate as such at the personal level.

Considering the amount of global ruins, perhaps we've had entire civilizations 'graduate'.

if you let go of the concept of linear time (a 4d spacetme artefact only), then Those old ruins are sober reminders of future failures...
