Today I mostly be feeling small

Posted on Tuesday, September 8, 2009 in Quickie

Universe

Wasting time on the internet, avoiding the doing of things that should be being done.

I fell upon the origins of the Universe

and realised that nothing that we do will ever be important.  Absolutely nothing, big or small.

I can’t figure out whether this is depressing,

or a huge relief.

Bring on the comments

    Is it not cheering to realise that we are all the result of a gigantic cosmic fart?

    Relief, indeed!

  2. You’re in good company K8, Charlie Brooker was saying same yesterday; http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2009/sep/07/charlie-brooker

    Did you get the feeding machine sorted?

  3. Also – there’s a great big bang explanation video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zV6aQbnHSRo&eurl

    Tis a huge relief as I do F…k all most of the day!

    Grandad; We are all just cosmic follow-through. It’s nice to be a skidmark.

    John Braine; Thanks for the links! They cheered me up no end; “…maybe brain-mangling science reports likely to leave you nursing an unpleasant existential bruise for several hours should be flagged as equally hazardous”. So so true!!!

    Granny; I hear ya mar, I hear ya. Sometimes even existence itself can be taxing enough without having to go jogging, too.

  6. GrowUp says:

    Objectively you are entirely correct. But we don’t live in an objective universe. Well, we do, but we perceive it subjectively and assign our own importance to things. Strictly speaking there is nothing important in an objective universe, it just is, importance is an abstraction.

  7. K8 says:

    So you could say that we don’t really exist at all, apart from in our own bubbles. Sod the laundry so.

  8. GrowUp says:

    Pretty much, so go with the flow…

    Yay! See send you an email and finally get onto your site! We watched some program the other night about the galaxy and I’m glad that big fucker Jupiter is there to catch all the stray asteroids! I always remember the aliens playing marbles at the end of Men in Black . .that’s us . .a marble! @ Grow Up . . Shuttup Braniac

  10. Grow Up says:

    Anyone ever read Sophie’s World?

  11. K8 says:

    Baino; You know they’re trying to tell us that Jupiter isn’t a planet anymore? How rude is it to tell something that it isn’t what it always was? I agree, it’s doing an excellent job as a behemoth football net.

    Grow Up; No, but it looks bloody excellent. It’s gone onto my reading list.
