Voyager A Theological Journey 2.22 Innocence

Music, logic, knowledge and conspiracy are all on the table this week as Tuvok sings us all off the sleep with a rendition of the Vulcan Ballad “Falor’s Journey”. As search was made in the internet for the other 347 verses but alas they could not be found. Vulcan music and the Lute as an instrumant have a long history in Star Trek going back to the legendary Spock.

Will agrees with Elizabeth about exploration leaving Lindsay alone in this eagerness to exploit the galaxy for personal curiosity.

We also explore the Johai window,s a technique that helps people better understand their relationship with themselves and others. It was created by psychologists Joseph Luft (1916–2014) and Harrington Ingham (1916–1995) in 1955, and is used primarily in self help groups and corporate settings as a heuristic exercise. Composed of four quadrants the Johari window allows us to reflect on knowledge and how it differs from person to person.

We also get to have some laughs through the ages with references to Mork and Mindy exploring the concept of reverse aging there the birth of Mearth as well as Red Dwarf portraying the possibilities of living in the big Suck.

So many opportunities for curiosity and the suspension of disbelief in and around this weeks episode of Voyager a Theological Journey!
