We Are the Universe

“I assert that if you are depressed after learning and being exposed to the cosmic perspective, you started your day with an unjustifiably large ego.”

Neil deGrasse Tyson

This video is, in essence, how people should look at new scientific knowledge as it is discovered. It’s not depressing to think about how huge the universe is, or that we are beings of atoms and energy. It’s amazing. Embrace it, because it is the truest thing you can know.

  1. Wow! So at first, I was like this is bull crap!… but it makes so much sense. I guess I have a big ego because it did depress me when I thought of the earth from a cosmic perspective. It just made me feel really small and confused to think of the Earth being so small compared to the rest of the universe. It also confused me because I tend to believe in things I can see and/or feel and touch and the only part of the universe that I saw was only a very tiny atom sized bit of a very large meal.

    1. Humans are born with big egos. You are taking psychology, so you know! And I love the metaphor you used. A large meal. Great XD
