      We Are Small

      It never ceases to amaze me how small the Earth is compared to the grand scheme of things. I never knew about the hubble's ultra deep field until my recent research. This video blew my mind.

      'We pointed a telescope at nothing because we were curious and we discovered the universe is huge' is a pile of crap, but the image is of course amazing.

      We're not tiny though. Your body is made of 7,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 atoms, which are 0.0000000001 meters across, and only 0.000000000000001 meters of that is the solid nucleus. We're huge.

      We are small compared to some things, but are we insignificant? What if instead of looking at size or mass, you looked at how much complexity is present. Then that changes the picture entirely.

      Well, I like to think more highly of myself than 160 pounds of dirt. If you don't, then that sucks for you.

      Significance is just a human concept that somehow allows us to mate more. It's pretty insignificant.
