StarTrek, Albert Einstein and Fairy Tales? – by David Franklin Farkas



Albert Einstein changed our understanding

of how the Universe works, forever changing Physics. That was over 100 years ago! Most people still don’t understand the most basic principles he discovered. That everything is simultaneously both matter and energy.

“Reality is an illusion. Albeit a persistent one”

~ Albert Einstein

 

Knowing that, changes everything. How could it be that is not common knowledge?

 .
And, this year is the 50th Anniversary of StarTrek…
Yes, that story with it’s theme and variation through numerous television show and movies is still fascinating us.
 .
How are these two factoids related?
Einstein told us:  “If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.” StarTrek is a classic fairy tale. Let me explain…

Fairy tales are morality tales…
The heroes and heroines experience a strange world populated with exotic and sometimes dangerous beings. They must come to understand their situation and those they share it with, sort out truth from lies and gain strength and understanding, while applying the moral code they live by.
 .
That is exactly what StarTrek is about. Gene Roddenberry wanted to write stories that honored and celebrated diversity. The crew of the first series included the first black woman on TV in a position of power over white men. Ohura was a bridge officer! That was just the beginning.
 .
In each episode, throughout the many iterations of the story, the crew is challenged with strange beings… in fact, their mission is to seek out life forms and cultures as yet unknown.
 .
What is profound is that they were explorers without being colonists or slavers. Their mission was to peacefully make contact and learn about others, respectfully and without changing the course of the unfolding history and development of the species they encounter. They modeled a way of being that was exactly opposite of human history!
 .
Do no harm! Help if you can. Learn from and respect all life!
 .
“It has become a crusade of mine to demonstrate
that TV need not be violent to be exciting”
~ Gene Roddenberry
 .
In a time without fairy tales,
StarTrek taught us the lessons formerly only learned in those old stories that we now pooh pooh. How many times have  you heard someone say, ‘it’s only a fairy tale?’
 .
By the time my daughter was in elementary school, StarTrek Next Generation was already in re-runs. Our evening ritual was to finish eating dinner by 7PM so that we could watch STNG together.
 .
Like any child having a fairy tale read to them, my daughter asked questions and made wise observations and processed the underlying moral understandings. Then I would tuck her in for the night and we would talk about that night’s story.
 .
We did that for years. I am very grateful that we could. What a gift!
 .
In this time of political upheaval,
with it’s racist and xenophobic rhetoric, let us fall back on what StarTrek tried, so beautifully, to teach us.
 .
Whether Roddenberry knew it or not, it’s lesson is a basic teaching of Native Americans and all indigenous people. We are all related. We are all one!
“All My Relations!  Mitakuye Oyasin”
