The Universe is large. Like, impossibly large. And getter bigger. You are much smaller. And while you may increase (or decrease) your mass by a “large” degree during your time in existence, it’s hard to compare that to the size of.a planet.
Much less a star.
Much less galaxy. Quite ridiculous, actually.
As Douglas Adams once noted, space is big. Like, really, really, big.
What are *your problems* in the context of that? In the context of a million years? A billion?
How about where time itself ceases to exist on the edges of the Universe? What do your bills matter to that?
How does your complaint compare to a supernova? A millennia? Space is vast and long, our lives short and sweet.
There is both a difference and sameness to be appreciated.
One thought on “Zoom Out”
Just when you think a 2008 post has been buried – I was researching a really weird guy named Leo Donofrio who popped up on Twitter in regards to 2022 AZ election and claims (actually he YELLS!) he’s “Not crazy!” and found your post that explains EVERYTHING! Thanks for the heads up https://robotpirateninja.com/2008/12/15/the-final-word-on-leo-donofrioand-the-natural-born-citizen/
