I cannot stop thinking about this video of the timeline of the universe. And with that perspective in mind, how ridiculous it seems to think of Putin’s war, Alberta’s oil obsession, the U.S. debt ceiling, the AI bandwagon, and so many other pursuits that mean nothing other than hasten our own demise.
We don’t lose when the human race disappears. We lose every day when we don’t cherish and respect the very gift of our existence within the vastness and perpetuity of the universe.
We are like butterflies who flutter for a day and think it is forever.
– Carl Sagan
