Carl Sagan: As children, we fear the dark

“As children, we fear the dark. The unknown troubles us. Anything might be out there. Ironically, it’s our fate to live in the dark. Head out from the earth in any direction you choose, and after an initial flash of blue, you’re surrounded by blackness. Punctuated only here and there by the faint and distant stars. Even after we’re grown, the darkness retains its power to frighten us. And so there are those who say we should not inquire too closely into who else might be living in that darkness…”

– Carl Sagan

What fears are holding you back? What would be possible if you stepped into the darkness and allowed the light of your being to light up the night?
