These 2 Unanswerable Questions Will Completely Change Your Perspective On Life
Chris Anderson, the curator of TED talks, has a lot on his mind, and always has. The fact is, everybody should. There's a vast, mostly unknown universe (or universes) out there that we as a human race are wildly unfamiliar with. If you take a moment to stop and look around even, you'll realize there's so much around you, even in your intimate little sector of life, that you've been blind to.
Now, step back and do that in terms of the entire universe(s). It's hard to fathom.
Yeah, try to imagine the fact that you don't even know what all is happening in what we currently refer to out universe, and now imagine that there is potentially an exponential amount of other universes out there we're currently unaware of.
There's countless theories of extra-terrestrial life, and the technologies they may be in possession of, making them considerably more advanced than we are here are Earth. Inversely, there's also the thought that we're the only ones. Both are pretty incredible if you think about them separately.
It's honestly hard to even wrap your mind around all this isn't it? But, that's what makes it so fun. That's what makes us human: the ability to think and be curious and explore. That's what will continue to drive us ahead a human race, and maybe, just maybe someday (or right now) we'll be the extra-terrestrials that other life forms in other universes are endlessly pondering over. What an incredible way to think about it.
You may as well think about them while you can. It's what makes you feel alive in our minuscule spec of the unknown world there is out there. So, get to it–have fun, thinking.
