Our sun isn't really spectacular when you compare it to other celestial bodies. We're just anthro-centric creatures and want to feel special so we give it special significance. It's special only in the sense that we fall within the goldilocks region of it for life to exist.
“You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.” -Nietzsche
The Sun was our God for Millennia. We worshipped the Sun. We worshipped the Sun, the bringer of light after hiding in the dark overnight and avoiding the dark predators, our God showed their shinning face to us in the warm sunshine.
And Jesus, as you probably notice, has a halo behind His head. The halo is the halo of the Sun. So Jesus is the latest reincarnation of the Sun God.
So we still worship the Sun, the bringer of life and light. And every day the Sun dies, just like Jesus. And just like Jesus is resurrected the next morning. Alleluia!
from the omniscient point of view of a dominant Ne thinker, our sun is NOT special. that's like saying one normally shaped, sized, produced, and configured sphere of hot gas out of a trillion, at least, is special.
but on the other hand, it is ours like someone said...so in that respect, I guess it can be considered special.
Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?
Given such a small number (a trillion) and such variance though, it would not be a stretch to say that given the precise composition, such a star is unique. It is, however, relatively insignificant in comparison to some of the more spectacular stars.
I was recently (try a couple minutes ago) in a debate on whether or not it is. Someone is having that fantasy that it is something special...when it isn't. I don't really know how to prove it isn't haha
It really is not special at all; the only stars less special are K-class and M-class stars (each being more common by an order of magnitude in that order.) In fact, in terms of 'friendliness' or life, K's are better than G's (though G's are obviously good enough, hehehe.) Still, G's aren't exactly common, but they are not uncommon either, and the stick around for a reasonable amount of time, thus being semi-easy to find.
