The Universe is a big place and we are very small (but we can still have a good time).

June 2, 2007

I thought I’d link to another blog today.  This blog post is particularly poignant, not for the religion/anti-religion stuff (and especially the tiresome comments) but for another human being being awed by the staggering size of our galaxy and the universe itself.  Moreover, it is an expression of being in awe while simultaneously understanding our minimal significance in it.  The tie-in to Lovecraft is wonderful too.

There are ways around the depression that comes with truth.  Embracing what we are helps:  highly evolved, curious apes with big pleasure centers.  Even though like Percy Shelley says all we ever do will amount to dust, we can still have fun in the doing.  Realizing potential is an end in itself.  In fact, that, and loving each other is all we have.
