And people really think we're the only living, sapient beings in the entire universe?

To quote from the movie Contact: "If it IS just us... seems like an awful waste of space."

watching this late at night, slightly stoned, makes me feel so insignificant, makes you realise how pathetic our earthly struggles really are.

That was awesome. Really makes your realize how precious this earth is. We are so small compared to the vastness of space and time. Yet, God, while existing outside of all of that space and time, still knows each one of us better than we know ourselves and loves us regardless of what we think of ourselves.

Dude, not cool - they didn't include my home planet!

I'm feeling existential loneliness after watching this again.

" "The marriage of the human body and technology will probably be sooner than you think."

Yeah sure. Only for the ones who can afford to do so. Meanwhile, those left behind should have no trouble smashing the servers and wiping those rich fcukers out" "

You really think my super-powerful robotic arm and mega-vision cyborg eyes will depend on a server? Sure, and my augmented shock-absorbing legs will be running Windows 8.

You honestly believe that in the 5 - 7 billion years the Earth can sustain life that technology won't have advanced enough to reach another solar system? Even is light-speed travel is impossible, a ship that would have multiple generations on board to get to a new solar system is possible.



That's not what he wrote. He wrote this:

it is unlikely we will ever be able to communicate or identify another intelligent life form outside the confines of our solar system


Given the size of the universe, that is true. Even if our descendents develop interstellar travel and expand to an empire of a million stars, that's still such a miniscule part of the universe that it would be very unlikely to intersect with any other intelligent life, even if they too have an empire of a million stars, even if there are thousands of those empires.

Charles and Ray Eames did this sort of thing in 1968 with a film called "Powers of Ten." You may have seen it in grade school.

Known and knowable...there is a slight difference. Known=studied and understood. Knowable=available for study.
Known universe barely extends past our stratosphere...and even then, that's a tenuous grasp of knowledge about our dear little planet.

Will humans be around in 5 billion years to see our sun die out? Hard to say, really. Our species, homo sapien sapien won't be around for sure. We're due to make our next evolutionary leap very soon, and thanks to our penchant for technology, that will probably be sooner than you think. The marriage of the human body and technology is very close on the horizon. Perhaps soon, we will be homo sapien machina.

There's no marketable incentive to go to other planets. Where's the profit in spending all that money?

We are ruled by Ferengi.

Unless of course we go extinct.. but that's kind of unlikely.

The human race will NEVER leave this system. They're simply too venal and petty.

"You honestly believe that in the 5 - 7 billion years the Earth can sustain life that technology won't have advanced enough to reach another solar system?"

It's entirely possible that we simply can't harness enough energy to travel, and even if we would, there might not be any habitable planets within a travelable distance.

It would have been better if on the way back they would have zoomed in on some girl sunbathing topless in her backyard.
