Journey Into Space by Toby LittA vast generation ship hurtles away from a violent, troubled Earth to settle on a distant planet orbiting an alien star. Those who set out on this journey are long-since dead. Those who will arrive at their destination have yet to be born. For those who must live and die in the cold emptiness between the stars, there is only the claustrophobic permanence of non-being. Life lived in unending stasis. Then the unthinkable happens: two souls - Auguste and Celeste - rebel. And from the fruit of their rebellion comes a new and powerful force which will take charge of the ships destiny. Journey into Space is science fiction at its most classic and beguiling: timeless, vast in scope and daring in execution.

For most of us, Earth is inescapably larger than life. Even now, after nearly six decades of human spaceflight, precious few people have rocketed into orbit and seen the sun peeking out from behind that curved horizon.

My Journey into Space. I can see the big star in the north as I gaze deeper into the Heavens. I can clearly see the many different sized stars. I can see the many far and distant planets. I soon find myself on my way; I am on my way into a short journey into space. As I pass through the cosmos, I can see many different sized comets. I see the many different colors of light.
Our civilization is entering a profound transition. For simplicity, I call it a transition from the story of Separation to the story of Interbeing. The converging crises of our time make them impossible to hold onto, and their unraveling induces the same on all the systems built atop them. For many of us, something similar is happening, or has happened already, on a personal level. It is for people who are approaching the space between stories, who are in the midst of that space, or who are recently emerged from it. It is the time when the old story of who I am, what is real, and how to navigate life has broken down. It is the time when my familiar ways of making meaning are no longer relevant.
