This video is sure to make you question the premise of existence in a positive way and illustrate some things about the nature of reality.
From what we are told by scientists, the universe is constantly expanding at about 42.5 miles per second per megaparsec. New theories are constantly being formed about how our universe was created, what will happen next, if there isn’t some complex of multiverses, and what time even is. We don’t even really know if time is linear. But if time is not linear… Physicists believe the future may actually be influencing the past.
The furthest probe ever launched into space is Voyager 1, traveling at about a million miles a day. After nearly 40 years, the spacecraft has barely even left our solar system.
Just last month, astronomers found an ultra rare globular cluster much more massive than the sun that could birth stars and explain how galaxies form: it is about 50 million light years away.
These are the questions that preserve the freshness of life: any time you feel depressed, all you have to do is search a little bit for something interesting to ponder like this. Research away.
