The development of humankind can be compared to that of a single individual. Humankind has lived its phase of childhood, wanting to accomplish great discoveries. At that time, it thought that it was the center of universe, tied to many claims without foundation and with a certainty to be special. Many people are still in this phase.
Today, humankind is in adolescence and loves playing with technology. It realizes that others living creatures in this planet also deserve to be respected. But humans still fight each other without tolerating their differences and experience difficulty in self-understanding, like a teenager.
Someday in the future, humankind will reach maturity. But for that to occur, it must leave its home, its mother, the planet earth. AstroTown is a science fiction book written in 2009 about this phase. Whether humankind is expelled from the planet or whether it decides on its own to abandon it, the fact is that humankind must learn to live independently. Only then will it be prepared to be part of a community it does not know. Only then can it find other life forms that are also living in space in a similar phase of maturity.
Find out how this independence process can occur and take a look at the difficulties that will be encountered on the way. The question is always the same: Is humankind able to redeem its mistakes and do what is right? Or is it a failed system that must be replaced by another, more-advanced system? The cards are on the table.
