steady state or expanding uni-verse?

as we are,so we see this world
as a steady state or expanding exponentially
While we know we are in motion at all times
we still feel a certain illusion of stability,/continuity
and make maps that allegedly define borders,perimeters,territories
which lead to negotiations,discussions,arguments,wars
which are eventually or dynamically settled
often without regard to geography or population
This flying rock is one of many.Many galaxies,many constellations.
The scale is only daunting because our species sees itself pre-eminent
It took years to even ask if other types of beings might co-exist with us
We make monster movies and horror movies about mutants,zombies,aliens
and scare ourselves into nuclear wars.Armageddonitis confounds us.
Rapture astounds us.New scenarios are needed so we can leap in to a new paradigm.
Because we cannot leave this planet.No other will have us !
