Man has an initial urge to explore. Throughout man's story, every man has been an explorer. From enfancy on, man explorer.
First he turns to his immediate environment. Then he seeks to know more about himself. Eventually he proceeds to wider exploration of the universe.
As man's knowledge grows, his constant thought is how what he find may best be used and adapted to his purposes, to meet mankind's needs.
This vast field of human endeavor forms a sub-theme of Expo 67's overall Themne subject: Man and his World.
