I am starting this with the aim of trying to find out if humans can put reason above emotion.
whether man can outgrow his circumstances and be successfull with satisfaction.
whether man can summon the frame of mind to enquire about other points of view.
whether life can be thrilling with only this process of enquiry and without any process involving a proclamation of victory
whether sport can be substituted for the periodic need to have adrenalin rushes.
whether the loser can be satisfied with having participated.
whether man has enough to do here or does he need to spread into extraterrestrial space.
