  • There's something about the cosmic perspective which for some people is enlightening and

  • for other people it's terrifying. For those who are terrified by it, they're here on earth

  • and they have a certain self-identity, and then they learn that earth is tiny and we're

  • in this void of interplanetary space and then there's a star that we call the sun and that's

  • kind of average and there's a hundred billion other stars in a galaxy. And our galaxy, the

  • Milky Way, is one of 50 or 100 billion other galaxies in the universe. And with every step,

  • star. And by the way, there's a hundred billion other stars that have other planets. There

  • might be other life out there, could be like us. It's probably not like us, but whatever

  • it is, it'd be fascinating to find out who it is. Can we talk to them? Can we not? Are

  • they more advanced? Are they less advanced? By the way, the atoms of our body are traceable

  • to what stars do. So those who see the cosmic perspective as

  • a depressing outlook, they really need to reassess how they think about the world. Because

  • when I look up in the universe I know I'm small but I'm also big. I'm big because I'm

  • connected to the universe and the universe is connected to me.

There's something about the cosmic perspective which for some people is enlightening and
