Mattia's Fortune Cookies

To science? It's a fraud! No one will ever resolve this problem,
neither genius, nor idiot! We have no ambition to conquer any cosmos.
We just want to extend Earth up to the Cosmos's borders.
We don't want any more worlds. Only a mirror to see our own in.
We try so hard to make contact, but we're doomed to failure.
We look ridiculous pursuing a goal we fear and that we really don't need.
Man needs man!

from "Solyaris", Andrei Tarkovsky, 1972
