Well, the earth is big because it's all we've experienced, and being able to fly anywhere in the world in a day or less doesn't seem to make it feel any bigger.

But when compared to the rest of the universe it just shows how insignificant we humans really are.

It's not us that is small, it's everything else that is big. Plus it's good that earth is small because the smaller they are, the more stable.

I'd love to know we're not alone, but I don't think we'll ever find out. I think the laws , age and sheer unimaginable scale of the Universe make make it extremely difficult for two or more different intelligent life-forms to ever interact with each other.


Sup?

They are getting good at making ads, I almost clicked it!
Ah, all the females on those ads are just amazing....
If I saw this woman in real life I'd be in a trance
I find that their ads seem to be less and less about medieval MMORPG and more medieval Massively Made Titties.

I seriously laughed out loud about that, I thought that was really funny. Good work sir, you win at life.


This post was valuable.

yeah i agree. not to mention communication would be so terrible if we ever did manage to meet a different species of intelligent life one of us will destroy the other.

but yeah I doubt it will ever happen short of some monumental discovery of a new transportation technology. Like something that warps space in a way we want it to. since we cant go as fast as light me move our selves and space in the opposite direction etc

who knows there are all kinds of strange things in science

I doubt any of those stars have inhabitants though.

Though some may contain fire people.

Out of an estimated 9 septillion stars in the universe, we contain life. In other words, there is a 1 in 9,000,000,000,000,000,000 chance that we are unique; even more if you factor in the other planets orbiting those stars.

So we're not only small, we're insignificant as well.

You posted an ad right in the middle of the thread. Come on..
On topic: I know right. Look up those comparison videos of Earth and the other planets then the Sun and the much larger stars. Headache.

You're talking about the theoretical world of "wormholes", which could be our best chance at traveling long distances across the universe, if we could harness these wormholes.
