We are the way for the Cosmos to know itself
We, the SimMartian colonists of Hope-1, wish you not for more, but for less. Less hate, less ignorance, less wars, less lack of respect, less environmental disasters, less pain, less poverty, less sadness. No matter if you are American, Russian, Greek, German, Italian, Japanese, Australian. No matter if you believe in Christ, Islam, Flying Spaghetti Monster. No matter if you are Caucasian, Negro or anything else, child, woman, rich or poor, Socialist or Patriot. All humans on Earth are brothers and sisters. All life forms on Earth, from dolphins to roses, are brothers and sisters. We are all members of the same family, both planetary and cosmic. Let's work for a cleaner, peaceful planet. Let's use the scientific knowledges to fight ignorance, to gain wisdom, to evolve both technological and spiritual. Let's spread the beauty of life and intelligence in the vastness of the Universe.
From Terring and the SimMars colonists, Happy New Year!!
