A Man from Beyond, an Agent of Evolution, an International
Man of Mystery.... he's been called by many names. And Hans
Starlife is certainly a cosmopolitan, having his family and
businesses spread out through both Europe, America, Asia and
Australia. But not only that, he also have a universal, holistic
fact, there is a cosmic timelessness about Hans Starlife.
While all the rest of us run about like ants, busy keeping
up with new trends or fighting each other in sports, politics,
religion or even family matters, he appears more like an observer
from the beyond, someone studying our planet from above. Almost
like a visitor from space ...or the future!
When I was a kid in the early space age, I thought we had
come pretty far. But the longer I live, the more primitive
I realize our species are. Our thinking, behaviours and reasoning
are still that of cavemen. Frankly, we are not on the same
level, this world and me. And that makes me feel lonely, as
if I was born a millennium too early, he says.
worse, much of what we Humans fight about are things we have
made up ourselves. Religions, traditions, values, laws, politics
and borders, they are all invented, just like the fairytales
we read to our kids. In that broad sense, they are not real
and thus not worth taking too seriously. Only Nature is truly
It doesn't hate, fight, cheat or conspire - making it a good
has always embraced the inhereted naturalness of growth, change
and evolution. But not everyone does. Therefore, he uses his
visions to help us widen our horizons and see beyond, exploring
our place & role in the larger scheme of things, as well
as the deep interconnectedness of everything from the smallest
quantum particles to flowers, trees, Humans, planets &
this work, our emerging upgrowth into the cosmos has been
his favorite topic. It is the perfect symbol of Nature's evolution
at work... growing, awakening, sowing the seeds of Life. "It's
beautiful" he says. And not only visually: actions and
processes - both our own and those of Nature - can also be
beautiful. But these perspectives also makes him stand out
from traditional space enthusiasts, who mainly work with the
hard sciences, technologies & profitability of space.
example, when Hans looks at planets, stars and galaxies, he
does't always think of telescopes and rockets. Instead he
may think of wildflowers, butterflies & leaves fluttering
in the breeze. Likewise, if he takes a walk among wildflowers
and butterflies and leaves fluttering in the breeze, he may
sense an intoxicating holistic presence of stars and galaxies,
of cosmic evolution in the making...
has always had a rational but positive outlook, appreciating
people with a sound amount of common sense. He also rejects
collective identities & mindsets, including those of religions,
party politics, nationalism and many sports, as they foster
a negative 'We versus Them' mentality. Hans doesn't see the
world in black and white, so often it's no meaning to ask
him which side he is on!
he has a reversed set of priorities, compared to others: He
sees the universe as more important than the Earth. And the
Earth as more important than continental interests. But that
means he also sees continental interests, such as the EU,
as more important than the interests of its member nations!
despite his many Big Visions, Hans sees beauty and wonders
even in the smallest of things. He gets along extremely well
with both kids and animals, and enjoys wine, the fine arts,
botanic gardens and cultural exchange, but also exotic topics
like SETI, AI, terraforming, time travel, multiverse theories,
transhumanism & mind uploading and even (the scientific
investigation of) paranormal phenomena!
I was a kid in the early space age, I thought we had come
pretty far. But Human behaviours and reasoning are still
that of cavemen. Frankly, we are not on the same level
- this world and me."
