    That is so bizzare. Just watch that and try feel any importance about anything. Sure family is one thing, but think of all the other shit that we worry about in a day.

    Or you could go the other way and think about how out of the entire vastness of the infinite universe, filled with galaxies, systems, and stars that dwarf us, as our world dwarfs an atom, we are (to our knowledge) unique. Tiny, insignificant when scaled to our surroundings, we live, we learn, and we love. In a brief flash of the cosmic timeline, we find a lifetime of memories.

    It may even be a comfort that, as we look out into the cold dark surrounding our little blue island, we shall never lack for new frontiers to explore, new wonders to experience.

    You are a dot. Honestly all you have to do is look up into the sky at night and see the stars to realize how small and insignificant we are.

    I sometimes spend hours thinking about how small we are in the universe.

    Unfortunately, it's when someone is telling me something important 75% of the time.

    No wonder why the aliens refuse to make contact. They fly over Earth and say 'these fucks are still flying on Galaxy Shuttles from TF Victory, let's see what's cooking at IC 1101 galaxy'.

    The truth is out there and when we find it, we'll all go mindfuck. That's all.

    It is amazing how small we are. I look up on some clear nights and ask myself how can we possibly concern ourselves with the petty details of our lives. The possibilities are endless and there are very few things we can be sure of.

    only thing I'd change about the first video is have it start on a person, move to a tall building, then the mountains, then same from there on..

    we are sub atomic in comparison to the rest of the universe. Hell we are tiny in relation to most of our fellow planets in our own system..

    We're just tiny little specks about the size of Mickey Rooney.

    That calls for a video link of its own, and also the one that probably partly inspired it.

    Makes you wonder whats out there. It's possible life exist elsewhere, hell our radiowaves have only reached about a handful of other star systems. 30 billion planets, it's hard to even fathom how big our galaxy is.

    When I watched that video in High Definition all I kept thinking was how 720p made it possible to see my house from here.

    I think I may have missed the point.
