Chapter 2 expands the concept of biophilia to encompass an awe for the majesty of creation beyond the Earth's biosphere. Also treated in this chapter is the need for a new ethics that is more inclusive of the unknown, much as the Theory of Biophilia calls for more inclusion of the unrepresented. There will be a need to redefine awe and rethink companionship, as human explorers endure extended time away from reminders of home in the pursuit of endless discovery. This chapter will take the reader to where no theory has gone before.
