The cosmos. It is truly strange to be inspired by the cosmos, as if the cosmos was something outside of us.. But perhaps we could never be inspired by something which does not resonate within our inner cosmos.
In the cosmos, stars are separated by light years of darkness. For future astronauts it means that incredibly vast distances should be traveled in deep darkness. The term light years became just slightly more intriguing! It also means that the journey through darkness must be embraced, if one wants to see other suns and meet new worlds! And not only the darkness of light years but the darkness of leaving behind the only known home, the Earth, perhaps loved ones, and embracing the unknown.
ETERNAL SUNSHINE is inspired by the radical astronauts willing to embark on such cosmic journeys! But more so by the realization that becoming a radical astronaut is not only about moving further, away from the Earth, but moving into one`s own world and radically traveling it! Because only when we become radical astronauts of the inner worlds, can we reach for the stars in the outer space!
