It's safe to say we're TRAPPED in our own galaxy by the sheer vastness and emptyness of space, the laws of physics won't allow us to get out for milennia to come. If we could place telescopes out of the Milky Way our view of the universe would expand a thousand-fold. What we can see now is heavily blocked-off by stuff like gigantic clouds/nebulae/star clusters/galactic center/etc, we have to rely on infrared/gamma/etc rays to "see" distant objects.
Scientists say we can only visually see 1% of the universe from where we are.
Mass relay?

Science is not a belief nor a belief system. It's a collection of evidence, with testable hypothesis's; that anyone can test for themselves.

Think outside your box there, pard'ner.

How many people who read that article ran "test for themselves" and confirm that it is true?

Sorry to bring it to you, but many things in science are beliefs to most people. It's simple, you read an article about something like this, and you believe it. I'm not saying these things don't exist or that it's not true, but I'm pointing out that most reader's read this and believe it is true. You trust the article and those scientists.

Let's be honest here and speak reality, you read that article, and you believe what it told you.

To the average person, there's some things in science that is not as simple as walking outside and confirming that the moon exists. Many other things in science are beliefs to us, whether you disagree or not, my point is TRUE.

Human perception sucks....The amount of time we actually experience something is SOOO small, does anybody know how much time we actually experience before it goes into memory? I wish instead of memory we could just have a REAL, never ending perception of time with no limit, imagine being able to relive and understand every single moment of your life, but without any of it fading? If we can break that perception limit or even extend it, it opens us up to EVERYTHING. That'll probably never happen though, since the brain is engineered this way and to be able to break this perception limit you'd need to build a quantum brain, or something that experiences time in that kind of way, which is probably biologically impossible.

It saddens me that every single thing i do and the amount of time i get to actually experience doing them is so small. It saddens me that tomorrow is next year, and tomorrow will also be my deathbed. tomorrow will be the end, tomorrow will be the beginning. Time constantly repeats itself, so what i am typing i have typed probably thousands of times. What I do tomorrow i have done many, many times already. I have also died, loved, lived, many times.

Here's a weird theory: You know how the universe is constantly expanding? What if universes are created by rips of other universes or this universes... It expands so much that it rips and then like a rubberband, contracts and then expands; this kind of explains where the big bang came from..

Also what if Black Holes are portals to other rips? Imagine!!!


Sorry if i sound like i don't know what i'm talking about, i just don't know the words to explain what i'm trying to explain correctly. Man i hate thinking about this stuff, makes me wanna curl up in a ball and not exist anymore because it seems so damn hopeless.

Am I the only one here thinking about the "Human Immortality Project" thread a while back as an answer to these insanely long distances to travel?

We wouldn't necessarily need cryogenics or light speed that way. confused.gif

This is often how i end up after reading these threads:



Fortunately, i've yet to change to a female - or get loads of cats. Or maybe my gender is just an illusion.....Oh geeze, i'm screwed. Maybe the cat lady was a regular to OCN.


My belief, human perception only goes so far. We're only familiar with the processes of percieving we've been gifted with. There's many more ways to see (and understand) the universe and it's nature than what we know. Sometimes i just think there will be things we will never be able to comprehend - unless we evolve of course. And yes, through this, i can understand why religion is so common (Not that i'm religious).
