MILLENNIAL RULES – QUALIFICATIONS - 04.19.2021
April 19, 2021
The SKYWARD Training & Development Complex has been established in San Francisco by the Bowman Twins. It is where the concepts for the establishment of the Bowman Moon Colony will be developed and the needed space vehicles and complexes designed and constructed. Now the candidate screening process is in full swing for Team Members.
"Team Members" will be employees of the Bowman Twins. They will be responsible for the research, design, and development of the modules that go into space, determine what supplies will be needed to support a colony on the Moon, and decide what types and how colony structures will be constructed. They initially build models of the Moon structures and then a full-scale mockup of the structures. They will work in conjunction with Jeff and Elon's staff, who will provide the rockets to transport Pioneers and their needed facilities to the Moon.
"Pioneers" will be volunteers from the employee "Team Members" who desire to build and inhabit the Bowman Moon Colony. Two people, one male, and one female, must volunteer together as a "Pioneer Team." It is understood by all that the best way to populate space is to have children in space rather than continually transport people from Earth. Pioneers will have to meet a much stricter screening process than Team Members.
To get a feel for who should be selected as candidates for the moon colony, I consulted my writers' resources and then researched other sources. First, I used my WRITERS GUIDE TO CHARACTER TRAITS by Linda N. Edelstein, Ph.D., which describes the qualities of a scientist and an astronaut.
Scientist – 1. Investigative, 2. Abstract, original and independent, 3. Likely to have grown up in cool, demanding home, and 4. Achievement-oriented, not people-oriented.
Astronaut - 1. Agreeable; willing to cooperate with others on the team, 2. Patient: rarely irritable, 3. Gullible (not sure where this one comes from?), 4. Not egotistical or arrogant; modest, 4. Able to share concern for others; effective interpersonally, 5. Not very open to new ideas; sticks with accepted ways of doing things, 6. Not fussy or whiny, 7. Perfectionistic.
Next, I looked at the NASA candidacy requirements – 1. Have 20/20 vision, 2. Be in excellent physical condition, 3. Have a blood pressure reading of about 140/90 at sitting position, 4. Be between 58.5 and 76 inches tall, 5. The candidate must complete a master's degree in a STEM field, including engineering, biological science, physical science, computer science, or mathematics, 6. The candidate must have at least two years of related professional experience obtained after degree completion or at least 1,000 hours pilot-in-command time on jet aircraft, 7. The candidate must be able to pass the NASA long-duration flight astronaut physical, 8. The candidate must also have skills in leadership, teamwork, and communications.
Then I added some Bowman Twins desires based on what I had written to this point – 1. All of the Colony residents will be between the ages of 25 to 45, in excellent physical condition. 2. The Twins prefer taller women, like their mother and wives, 3. They have an agreement with POTUS that the make-up of the colony will reflect the diversity within the United States, 4. The candidates must be able to clearly speak and understand English, 5. All colonists must be in superb physical and mental condition. 6. Pioneer Teams must be made up of a male and a female who like each other.
This is repeated from my January 4, 2021 post – Who decides who gets to pick those that colonize space? Part of that selection process includes the fact that initially, only the fittest will survive in space. If you think about it, NASA is one of the most discriminatory organizations in the World. The other part is that the players with the money to colonize space will probably select only those from their own tribe or clique. Yes, discrimination will come into play. Maybe Darwin was right with his theory – space will require the evolution of the species in the form of human-mandated natural selection. Oh, to be a young person in good physical condition with a high I.Q. who belongs to the right clique.
Who knows who the Pioneers might meet during their colonization of the Universe? This excerpt is from an April 23, 2021 article in THE WEEK titled Why Kaku Is Anxious About Aliens –

"Soon, we'll have the James Webb Space Telescope up in orbit, and we'll have thousands of planets to look at. I think the chances are quite high that we make contact with an alien civilization." Should that happen, some of Kaku's colleagues believe humanity should say hello. "I think that's a terrible idea. We all know what happened to Montezuma when he met Cortes in Mexic." For those who don't: The Aztec emperor welcomed the Spanish conquistador into his palace, only to be taken captive and then killed. "Personally, I think that aliens out there would be friendly, but we can't gamble on it," said theoretical physicist, Dr. Michio Kaku.

Welcome to the Bowman Colony, a small town on the Moon where there is no crime, poverty, starvation, or homelessness. Where you get to know everything about your neighbor, and they know all about you. Where there is peace, not so much quiet, and the concept of freedom is in question. Where your kids may end up living on another moon, or planet, or spacecraft billions of miles away. Who knows who they may end up befriending, avoiding, or battling? Any interest in joining this group? Or are you going to stick it out here on Earth? Whoops, forgot to ask if you meet the required criteria?
That's all for today.
