    Well well, this video is quite interesting. This puts into perspective, although we may not like to believe this, how useless and insignificant we are in the "big picture".

    Check it out, share your thoughts.

    (keep in mind, the stars in that video are combined 1 "dot" in the sky, imagine a comparison of all the dots etc. )

    **If you liked that video, check this one out as well.

    re: madmoneymike
    You don't believe in aliens? I didn't either until I saw the murals at the Denver airport. Then I googled 'Denver airport murals' and learned stuff that is mindblowing. Check it out.

    Hey, great post! A tribute to the delusional concept of self-importance.
    We are truly insignificant. However, I will continue to drink expensive,
    micro-brewed beer, enjoying my insignificant moment, my decaying state
    of entropy.

    Being only 3 dimensional we can only see a small part of the BIG picture.
    ITs like magic to us when those aliens do their techy stuff

    Not to mention interdimensional aliens and also possibility of Time travellers visiting us.

    Example go back to just the Victorian era showing someone an Iphone and they would think its magic

    Oh the mass permutations mess my small neurons.
    Oh and now discovered the UFOs ad orbs can be seen by infrared experiment on YT with two cameras there was a UFO seen with infrared and other normal camera NOTHING

    Wow imagine being dropped on a planet like earth but 100X bigger.
    Putting everything on a map would take thousands of years and the exploring would never stop. Imagine a place untouched by humans,pure, just the way it was meant to be...

    Makes me think of WOW...

    Put this in your pipe and smoke it.

    Would the universe be so vast if it was not for our insiginficance to give it scale? The universe is only vast because we say it is. Without us, nothing exists because seeing that something exists is something that only human beings can do. Of course, things exist independently of us, we must assume this to survive in the world.

    But we can say absolutely nothing about them without being totally subjective. If no mind experienced time, the universe would not be 14 billion years old or 4,000 years old as some bible thumpers would have you believe. It would have no age without a thinking being to assign an age to it.

    Also, speaking objectively (which is impossible if you think about it), we are actually closer to the middle in the general scale of sizes. It is a continuing curiosity that human beings are about half way in powers of 10, mathematically speaking, between a single quark and the estimated vastness of the visible universe.

    @Moneymaka - You would instantly be crushed by the gravity.

    Take a look at this.

    that's pretty trippy, if you wanna see some more interesting stuff like this, check out string theory, and also what the bleep do we know. It covers more dimensions, possibility of time travel, and parallel universes, plus a lot of other weird stuff with atoms and so on.

    What the hell is your problem.
    I am one motivated fuck, but not taking a break(even if its 15min. to talk about something else than making money) once in a while is bad for you, mentally and physically.

    And what does trust have to do with talking about the nature?
    What you just said there makes me think you're already mentally ill.

    Besides, this is the lounge section , so what were you doing here in the first place if you're so into making money?

    Thats exactly why I refuse to believe we are the only intelligent life in the Universe. To think otherwise is just plain ignorant (and shows what little intelligence us as humans really have).

    Yeah he does sound a bit screwed up... Just chill out man, some of us like to have non-marketing related chat from time-to-time. You dont like it, dont read it. Really is that simple mate.
