All creatures exist in one ecosystem or another, which, if observed closely from outside, reminds of terrarium lives. Most are occupied with chewing on the state of their own container, and perhaps occasionally looking down upon those dwelling in similar but lesser systems. How many can break out and explore their own outer space like astranauts?
It is admittedly a nearly impossible thing to even think about. Spacewalkers become both determined and capable only because they are enrolled on a collective mission, and even so, without non-stop support from inside their home system, they can’t perform any further duties despite breaking free from gravity.
Now imagine, what would it entail to land on an elevated sphere by ones own will and endeavors?
