This paper asks what serious philosophy says about the ultimate goals and figures of merit, for use in evaluating and guiding activities such as NASA and other space program. It begins with a condensed review of a new viewpoint in philosophy, "the philosophy of sanity and integrity," citing papers in Neural Networks in more detail. More controversially, it presents concepts of the soul grounded in that philosophy, but also addressing more data from experience, bearing upon our goals in space and on earth as well.
