I’d like to take a break from our usual funny movie and TV videos to showcase something that I truly think everyone should watch. It’s a six minute video crafted by the American Museum of Natural History, and it shows a complete map of the known universe, from earth to the furthest point we know exists. We cover sci-fi here frequently, and so I think this is pretty relevant.
More importantly though, it just makes you stop and think how small we really are. When you see our world, our universe rendered in this way, a few things come to mind. We are all pretty insignificant when it comes down to it, with all of our petty problems and fights here on earth. We should be dedicating resources to exploring this vast unknown, not pulling funds from places like NASA to fund wars and bailouts.
And lastly? You really think we’re alone, amidst everything you can see here? It isn’t possible. And if not, what does that do to your life philosophy?
Probably too many deep thoughts for a Monday morning.
