This is defanitly out of left field but I thought I’d remind you of a not so little and often over looked fact, even though it’s one the most bloody obvious and in your face (look up past the street lights at night) facts we live with.
Weather you are religous or not you have to acknowledge the fact that (as far as we can tell with our current technology anyhow) live on a planet that has a moon, that planet is in a solar system with many planets, this solar system has a sun or star, this star is one of (don’t know the figure) shit loads of stars within our galaxy, this galaxy is one of shit loads of galaxy’s within the universe… are there more universes, who knows possibly?

(The colours may not be normal visible light but it does exist)
So I ask you to do yourself a favour as you sit there at you computer be it at you office or home, sit back, take a deep breath expell those carbon dioxide molecules and re-oxigenate your blood that flows through your body the same as everyone elses pumping through your heart every second that you’ve existed and think of yourself at your desk, in a room, in a building, in a town/city, in a state, in a country, in a continent, on a planet, in a Solar System, in a Galaxy, in a universe….
The big punch line at the end I think is that it’s real. As real as the desk your computer sits on. It’s a fact that we live by….
We gloss over it way to much, it almost seem like it’s made up, a movie, this other thing that we kinda live by but never dwell on for too long in fear of going mad!
For me thinking about it reminds me how insignificant we are at a universal scale, we’re not even an ant running around under the universe’s feet… I think that makes our every day worries pretty small.
