We don’t want to conquer space at all…

‘Solaris’ (1972) by Andrei Tarkovsky


Dr. Snaut: We don’t want to conquer space at all. We want to expand Earth endlessly. We don’t want other worlds; we want a mirror. We seek contact and will never achieve it. We are in the foolish position of a man striving for a goal he fears and doesn’t want. Man needs man!

Screenplay from the book ‘Solaris’ by Stanislaw Lem:

“We have no need of other worlds. We need mirrors. We don’t know what to do with other worlds. A single world, our own, suffices us; but we can’t accept it for what it is.”
Stanislaw Lem, Solaris

“Human beings set out to encounter other worlds, other civilizations, without having fully gotten to know their own hidden recesses, their blind alleys, well shafts, dark barricaded doors.”
Stanislaw Lem, Solaris


I encourage everyone to read the book and watch the film, doesn’t matter which way first, I saw the film first, and was blown away by the book.
