    Sometimes I lke to go to the beach and watch the ocean, and swim in it. This helps me when I sometimes get to focused on problems, breaks me out of my tunnel vision and humbles me.....and makes me feel better again.

    lol

    This is a great video. It's so difficult to apply information like that while sitting in my room drinking apple juice with my dog sitting next to me.

    You sound so much like my astronomy teacher. He would constantly say, 'Who cares what (he/she/you) think(s),(s)he's (you're) insignificant. Once you realize how vast the universe really is (he'll/she'll/you'll) think twice about acting so snotty, because you're insignificant....' He always said his class would humble you.

    It did not.

    Reading philosophy, munching on gummis, or live music makes me contemplate the metaphysical. I know I'm small but actions are not.

    theantijock saidOnce universe sufficiently expands so that we can no longer see other heavenly bodies, when there is no longer real time empirical proof, does astrology morph into another religion and do we then, again, become center of the known universe, our egos grown as large as insubstantial tales of mythical, colossal galaxies which some kook tries to convince us used to be or are even still there, only now we can no longer detect them.


    Astrology is not a religion. It is a (psuedo)science.

    We humans are mere microbes on our planet, let alone our solar system. Our sun is a dust particle in the swarm of suns that make up the outer arm of our galaxy. Our arm of the galaxy is a dustmole stuck on the bottom of your swiffer after 6 months of not cleaning up. I get sleepy, always, looking at images of our vast universe. We don't even know where, or if, the universe ends. I find it usefull to point that vastness out to eople who think that being gay is an issue. In all of that, who really cares, even God, if a crumb is toasted or not, or if the angel is dancing or standing still on the head of the pin.

    thank you for sharing this video. this video, along with witnessing the space shuttle launch a few days ago, i am reminded how my problems really are just a game that i sometimes invest too much drama in playing.

    i've looked up further information on the hubble deep and ultra deep fields and now have another way to anchor myself if i let the game get to me too much. thank you.
