is a question Ian Martin asks in a political context. Eli is a strange creature who always wondered why others need the promise of an afterlife to answer that question one way or another. The existential drive others have towards settling other planets, even star systems is to Eli another such question.
Now some, not Eli to be sure, are constantly asking, "Is that all there is?" The question too often blocks making the most of what we have. In Eli's humble opinion, yes, the Earth is all there is for us who here abide for better or worse.
