    Default Lonely Universe

    I was surfing youtube and came across this and it gave me the chills. To think how big the universe really is, where we occupy it, and how that reframes the way we look at the things we consider "problems" is chilling, to say the least.

    Well, I do feel alienated from society, so I guess it works.

    I have already posted this but I think that this is very good for visualizing the entire size.

    I was thinking of the Total Perspective Vortex as well.....

    I'm not particularly disturbed by the idea of an infinite universe- I think it's kind of fascinating because of all of the millions of millions of things that are still undiscovered and that there really ARE things that we don't already understand... I guess I find comfort in the unknown because it means that there are still plenty of puzzle pieces left to deal with.

    NOT knowing, and the process of finding things out comforts me a lot more than the idea of knowing...

    Plus- I LOVE the pictures of other galaxies and star clusters and such... they're so beautiful (I used to have a picture of space taken from the Hubble Space Telescope hanging over my bed, near the map of the world)
