i agree with you flow - it's kind of ignorant to know nothing about anything that is interstellar.
i don't know how someone can ignore the name of the planets of our own solar system.

i personally think life is what makes the universe interesting.
But in order to understand life - you need to understand the universe.

it looks retarded and useless for so many people. but that stuff interests me, understanding as much as i can about the universe is like a personal goal.. it's out of this world, it changes from learning about things you need to know exclusivly on this planet.

I agree with afi in some sort of way tho - there's people that gets crazy with it.
but there's people that gets crazy over mostly anything on earth.

ignorant to dismiss the thought of it, not ignorant to know nothing about it.
Death is the only certainty. EVERYTHING else is variable.

Ignorance is not knowing about something.


So people that know nothing about space are ignorant.


Just like I am ignorant about details of religions, mathematical intricacies, the deep workings of physics...


I can't really pinpoint when I first got taught about the solar system and the greater universe, but it bothers me that my fifteen year old nephew doesn't hear anything about space in class.

So I take it on me to show him what space is all about, hell we came from space,all of us were brought forth from meteors impacting on earth bringing with them amino acids that combined with matter on earth to form life that evolved into what it is today.

The universe is mind boggling to think about, the vastness of it, how everything from a molecular scale to galactic scales are intertwined... It's fantastic and awe inspiring at the same time and many times I find myself pondering about my place in this vast structure.


We humans like to think we are so important, we destroy our own planet and ourselves for personal gains and my greatest fear is that humanity will collapse on itself before becoming truly spaceborn.

I would give everything to be able to skip the next hundred years and get to a point in the future where humans have finally set aside pathetic wars and politics and have united to work towards the same goals.


Because - given that we don't nuke ourselves- our planet won't sustain us forever, and I would really love to find out if there are true edges to our galaxy.


Also: there's a new theory that predicts that we are but holograms, that all the information of our galaxy is stored in a two dimensional sheet at the edge of our universe, which would be cool but nihilistic at the same time.
Computer games don't affect kids. I mean, if Pac-Man had affected us as kids, we would all be running around darkened rooms, munching magic pills, and listening to repetitive electronic music.

reality is charlie sheen, desperate housewives, E Entertainment and fucking MTV.


on the other hand, reality is you, being, just being, existing right now, no thoughts of the past, or the future, just you as a person, right now, just sitting there at your computer/laptop or phone, just you, existing, right now...that is all that you are, your past doesnt mean shit, your future doesnt mean anything, all you are, is what you can see before you, right now...

yep, im shit fuck drunk, and i apologise for my stupidity!


hopefully, someone can see where im coming from though! :)

I'm not even going to read it again, but take from it what you will.
