Universe is so fucking vast
    #2974942 - 08/07/04 10:47 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

And not just universe, but our planet.

Who here is depressed?

I for one, 99.9% of my time im in my own involutary ego prison but every once in a while i get to take a peak "outside" and boy, am i ever surprised to find what is there. Its so beautiful even if i can not have it... i guess what im trying to say is being locked up tight and then experiencing this brief moments of joy and discovery, even if they brief is awesome, whats outside of reach is so infinitely beautiful


Like the naked leads the blind.
I know I'm selfish, I'm unkind.
Sucker love I always find,
Someone to bruise and leave behind.
All alone in space and time.
There's nothing here but what here's mine.
Something borrowed, something blue.
Every me and every you.

Whenever I'm depressed I go outside at night and look at the stars. All those stars, quadrillions of them, that could be suns for planets, planets with all sorts of interesting lifeforms. So many possibilities for types of civilizations and cultures. So many different possibilities for expression of consciousness. Then I think about my own life here on this rock in the Siberia of the Milky Way, and how infinitesimal it is in the big picture. Then suddenly my own suffering and problems don't seem that big a deal anymore.

Whenever
life gets you down, Mrs. Brown, and things seem hard or tough,
And people are stupid, obnoxious or daft,
And you feel that you've had quite enough...

Just remember that your standing on a planet thats evolving, revolving at 900 miles an hour
Thats orbitting at 19 miles a second, so its reckoned
A sun that is the source of all our power
The sun and you and me, and all the stars that we can see
Are moving at a million miles a day
In an outer spiral arm at 40,000 miles an hour
In a galaxy we call the milky way

Our galaxy itself contains a hundred billion stars
Its a hundred thousand light-years side to side
It bulges in the middle, sixteen thousand light years thick
But out by us its just 3000 light years wide
We're 30,000 light-years from galactic central point
We go round every 200 million years
And our galaxy is only one of millions of billions
In this amazing and expanding universe

The universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding
In all of the directions it can whizz
As fast as it can go - the speed of light, you know
Twelve million miles a minute and thats
The fastest speed there is

So remember when you're feeling very small and insecure
How amazingly unlikely is your birth
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space
Cos there's bugger all down here on earth.

"whats outside of reach is so infinitely beautiful"

That's why its out of reach - we ruin it when we reach it, so then we look further again :wink: for more beauty to deconstruct

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

tons upon tons of galaxies..and we're the only one's here

hmmm....lots of wasted space on us, dont ya think?


--------------------
Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.---senior doobie

I don't think we really are the only ones here.  The universe is far too big...

I was just quoting a song btw :wink:
