Something to tide you over…

Makes you feel quite insignificant doesn’t it? Also, doesn’t it make humanity reaching Star Trek levels within the next few hundred years seem all the more important?

    Aye, nifty in a heart-achey kinda way.

    If it is any consolation, another ice age or the sun blowing up far sooner than that slideshow states is currently thought to be in our possible future. So there’s always that to look forward to -_^

    You might have seen this before, but it is called the Scale of Universe and it allows you to zoom in and out to massively large n’ small sizes and shows comparisons to give you an idea. Nifty indeed:

    • That is totally awesome and, just like that little gif I put up, makes you realize how insignificant you really are. That said, I enjoy my existence and believe, at least in relation to me, it’s important; I haven’t lost sight of how small I really am though and how small everybody really is. It makes something like the president or anybody else with an overinflated sense of authority seem irrelevant. It’s like the beginning of Contact where our little domain looks large but as the camera zooms back and we’re listening to chunks of various broadcasts from the past (and eventually silence) our sphere of influence is a joke in comparison to anything else. Now only if people would take that into consideration maybe we’d lighten up a little. =)
