I agree partially but I also believe there is a top threshold on which "discovery" makes us no longer humans, that although wired in our evolutionary process makes us blind to our own demise. Discovery without bounds ultimately swaps us out into something "Alien". Something that would drive a normal Homo Sapiens mad.
Now let me ask you something personal.
Do you fancy a brain implant to augment your intellectual capacity for the sake of "discovery" running the risk of becoming alienated to your own previous identity? Moreover, do you want to run the risk of being hacked directly instead of traditionally through classical marketing tactics?
I believe we all have a limit on what we allow ourselves to learn whether we are fully aware of it or not.
How far is too far for you?
I spend all my life praising Science and Technology and pushing the limits on all directions and I am still very much engaged with it every day for a great deal of the day itself, but that all said and granted, I am a Bio and I will die a Bio.
Mars has low gravity, no useful magnetosphere, and almost no atmo. Adapting to Mars is possible and a challenge, but is it necessary?
At the present day, in my current state of mind, I believe the Stars will not be for "Bios"...something else will carry the torch after us and with far less need for logistics. Bios are fragile and need a ton of care. A machine needs a power cell and its good to go.
Yes, I also agree that having more than one planet would be great for mankind, but my problem is to know what mankind will be very very soon down the line.
