Lets try to put this into some sort of perspective, try to wrap your brains around this.
Yes the pic is big, it kinda has to be

We are small, that is all.

I love that series of images. So amazing to put things in perspective. If you ever make it to Kennedy Space Center, they have a huge backlit poster of that Hubble photo with all those galaxies.

Breathtaking.

compound that scale by how little we actually know about our own planet, let alone our nearest neighbors. Now think about the infinitesimal number of planets represented by even the tiniest fraction of that image, each with at least as much if not many times more raw information to know about than our earth and it kinda gives you the epiphany that...
We are small
and ignorant.

ok enough depth for the day, I'm gonna go watch porn :thefinger:

WHAT? :confused: :rasta:
ok I'll paraphrase.
our planet, in comparison to the rest of the known universe, is less than 1 grain of sand compared to all of the world's beaches in scale.
And we know somewhere between jack and $hit about our own grain of sand (planet), so imagine how many other grains of sand make up the rest of the beaches in the world, each unique and with as much to learn about it as our entire planet.

Im gonna come back to this thread w/ a head full of acid one night and just let it rip me to shreds.
If you did enough when you were young you are supposed to get some freebies when you get old..... And don't go for this thread drop some and go to Kennedy and see it all big time and chit.... might be too much.

And think how much smaller. "Atom" means indivisable. We were wrong there. you have protons, electrons... Now we find those are divided into quarks, neutrinos... And that's all we see so far. Infinitely smaller as well as infinitely larger.

Whats not to say everything we see isn't really one atom on a protozoan in the belly of a termite? We gave time it's perspective didn't we?

Mostly because as we look at things smaller and smaller, they get more and more uniform, both in size and physical arrangement, and as we look at things larger and larger they are more varied and randomly positioned (see the pictures of galaxies above).

The alien playing marbles with the universe at the end of Men In Black was funny, but not very scientifically accurate.

Someone's already trippin on acid. Anyone watch the movie Boondock Saints? Remember the scene where Rocko walks into the room where the entire Mob meeting was just blown away and he successfully has an entire monologue using essentially one word (F***). TBP, start over.

for anyone over the age of 8, I would agree with you - incoherent, babbling crap typed with a rubber mallet.
but for TBP, that was actually decent :thefinger:
