The title of this post is a lore that I’ve encountered first in the Star Wars series where Jedha, a small desert moon frosted by a permanent winter, was home to one of the first civilizations to explore the nature of the Force. At one time a world important to the Jedi Order, Jedha served as a holy site for pilgrims from across the galaxy who sought spiritual guidance.
In a game created by LegendaryCollector, “Galactic Pilgrim” is an A.I. machine and a member of the Interspecies Collaboration. The Interspecies Collaboration was constructed by humans and machines who thought that working together instead of against each other was the way into the future. The “Galactic Pilgrim” is on the lookout for new habitable planets in her custom-built spaceship “Seeker” that is equipped with a fully autonomous explorer drone.
There exists also a HipHop group called Galactic Pilgrims who made an album called The Dark Side (https://soundcloud.com/thabenjaofficial/galactic-pilgrims-dark-side) and launched in 2017 a project called Artz &nd Craftz (https://soundcloud.com/thabenjaofficial/galactic-pilgrims-artz-nd-craftz). I have no knowledge of more recent projects.
Galactic Pilgrim exists also into the form of an album of Christian inspired poetry by Daniel Orsini that wants to explore key concepts from Jungian psychology and the new physics. In this bundle the author examines the spiritual as well as the psychological effects of being a Christian, trying to reconcile them with an amalgam of diverse yet related influences.
The theme also relates to my own project ” A Cosmology of Civilization“, since it incites people to have a look upon human civilization from a broader perspective.
