I’m Justin Townsend. By day I work as a Systems Admin/Project Manager for a Hydraulics repair/machine shop. In my spare spare time I continue research I started in college in 2006 involving: moving away from internal combustion as a source of transport, species development socially and personally with a weather eye to ethos and principles, the renewing of craft/trade skills in society so that we can shape a merit-based society that has a more reasonable chance of propelling our species towards interstellar exploration, among several other hobbies and past times. I genuinely believe we are at a point in time when we can, and should, make serious choices that will benefit our species overall - not any political, religious, or monetary agenda; as, in fact, those things tend to diminish us as people frankly. I want a world all of our great great grandchildren love, cherish, and call home but I want it to be a place to start out from and reach out into Laniakea more. There is so much we do not know about our own planet yet, but so very much more out there that calls to us.
I look forward to sharing my thoughts for all of this and learning others’ points of view, thank you very much for being here and letting me speak as well!
