Many monastic traditions stress the importance of silence and solitude. Leaving behind all the material comforts of Earth for the "final frontier" of dwelling in a monastic community or as a hermit in space would take on additional significance and spiritual impact. Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism and Jainism all have monastic traditions. The First Nation Peoples the traditions of solitude, fasting, and appealing to the spirits to grant a vision of that person's purpose in life. The mission into space could be a vision quest, or the result of it!
