Look at the image. Feel small, yet?
It would be quite legitimate, if you did. In fact, most people look at the image and realize what it means, feel that way…which is where it helps to be a space nerd.
Know what a space nerd does?
The space nerd starts reading about all of this, getting ever more deeper into that feeling of utter lonliness and inferiority, until that day when she notices something. No, I don’t mean the whole “We are star stuff”-stuff. That’s impressive, awesome, for sure, but what really gets up her spirits every time, is the simple fact that she can think about it.
Sapient, small ape on your planet, I bow to your powers! 🙂
