There is not a single human invention or discovery that even a poet has ever dreamed of.
Without poets, after all, there would be no science, as some point out, and they are probably not wrong.
Of course, by saying poets, we include all artists.
Although in recent centuries the scepters of scientific innovation or prophecy have been held by litterateurs.
Typical is the case of Jules Verne, who “prophesied” many new discoveries or simply made them public through his literary work.
Essentially, through his fiction, he looked at conservative England directly in the eye, while at the same time unfolding new possibilities of science.
As a French-speaking, Catholic, and liberal (in the true sense of the word), he encountered poor English translation.
Something that made him a children’s story writer in English-speaking countries, and not only them.
Of course, there is also the urban legend that he wanted to infuse teenagers and children with scientific curiosity so that when they grow up they can engage in science.
On the other hand, there are many who believed in the colonization of the planet Mars, especially reading the book “Alternative 3” by Leslie Watkins.
Which turned out to be the biggest hoax, since it sold millions of copies.
However, to some, this idea did not seem unreasonable or unrealizable.
Especially if you are both a dreamer and a billionaire, you just have to try.
“SpaceX is an American private aerospace technology company that provides space transportation services.
It is headquartered in Hawthorne, California, where it was founded in 2002 by businessman Elon Musk.
In order to reduce the cost of space transport and to develop the technology for the colonization of Mars“, Wikipedia informs us.
Elon Musk and his unique project were the main inspiration for the duet of the Italians, but now residents of the British Isles, Shape Of Water.
The song that opens their debut album “Great Illusions“, was released by Eclipse Records on June 12, 2020.
As Rox Capriotti, the singer of the two-member band, informs us, that the song already had a different performance with their old band The Lotus, and has been played since 2015.
When Shape Of Water was formed, they decided to include it in their setlist, something that took shape in November 2018, in their first live appearance.
The lyrics were written in 2013, when Rox heard about Elon Musk’s design, SpaceX.
As for the music, the inspiration came from two giants of alternative rock, Muse and Deftones.
These bands are a major influence on the newly formed duo and have never hidden it.
Although the way they create is based primarily on the composition of the music, on which the lyrics tie to…
This process was not followed on Mars-X, as the two parts of the song (lyrical and musical) were written at the same time.
The peculiarities of the song, however, do not stop here.
Although it has been around since 2013, it seems to be ahead of developments, as the SpaceX Starship (Interplanetary Transportation System) was announced by the company just in 2017.
A much more powerful missile system, so that it can reach other planets, but also be manned.
Just in 2019, SpaceX launched the new ship “Dragon 2“, which is suitable for transporting people.
No song managed to transport people to another planet …
Except maybe for the music track from the book “The Music of Erich Zann” by the legendary Howard Phillips Lovecraft.
In this particular, the hero is transported to another planet, playing a specific musical composition on his violin.
So do Shape Of Water… They prophesy something that is expected, although we would like it not to be true!
Mankind, as history shows, tends to destroy everything in its path …
The majority of songs convey a message, which can create a sequence of events.
From simple lyrics, they have the ability to evolve into classic works, which today only pioneers believe.
The main message conveyed by the song of Shape Of Water is YES to the colonization of a new planet, but WITHOUT destroying ours completely.
But most of all, humanity must not destroy another planet!
“Are we able to take humanity to Mars without destroying everything as we did on already Earth?” Rox Capriotti wonders.
One of the strangest theories, indeed very conspiratorial, states that mankind first lived on Mars, after destroying it, they colonized the Earth.
We really hope that this theory does not have a single drop of truth…
