...and thats only from the "visible" stars, from the "visible" milkyway from the "visible" universe...

u travel further gazillion billion trillion lightextravaganzayears beyond and that "visible universe" is just a dot surrounded by empty space/black matter.... u zoom further out and its pitch black....
u travel further and you may see some more dots on the other side... where there is other universes....
u travel further away and those universes become dots, meanwhile looking to the side u see another dot/dots (universes) on the other side....

u travel further and all those universes form a unified dot.... like a milkyway/galaxy cluster of universes....

u go... this must be it? nope! u travel further and all that shit becomes a microscopic dot... just to see on the other side there may be even more... dots...

u go... ok well now this must be it? maybe... maybe not.... we dont know...

But keep in mind, its neverending... no matter how much shit exists up there EMPTY SPACE exists, to infinity.... and thats the biggest mindblower...

Because i mean there isnt like some.... "stop"... like some magical uber game of thrones WALL or something at the end of all that empty space/dark matter.... space just keeps going and going.... and that is the only thing that blows my mind.... how it just... doesnt end, even if it did, how could it??? Even if there is some super magical molecular thermo uber force field.... there is still the other side of it.... hooowwww.... wwhhyyyy...... what if you just pop up on the far end of the furthest opposide side of all that empty space, like in Mario Bros 3 battle mode or something lol.... or maybe you just get disintegrated.... or simply it just doesnt end, how/why? just deal with it....

Lets just continue to not think about that & be reminded how stupid & tiny all humans really are... and lets instead act "educated/intelligent/powerful" about things here living our little puny lifes.... we havent even 100% explored earth...

What's crazy is we probably have mapped more of the night sky than our own oceans. That's how far we are from knowing our own planet.

We have a loooooong way to go.. if we don't kill ourselves first and I'm not too certain that we won't kill ourselves or make Earth inhabitable somewhere inside of a thousand years. We are really screwing up our backyard on the only planet we can call home. I wish people would show more respect to mother nature. We cannot push for more oil drilling, open up more dirty coal plants, deforest more, pollute openly, overuse plastic & dump it everywhere, overfish the oceans, overbreed, overuse antibiotics and steroids in animals we eat (too much methane + too many antibiotic-resistant bacteria), overuse of pesticides.. It will catch up to us very soon, if it hasn't already, and we will be completely f*cked. There is most likely no god or fairy-tales coming to save us.

It is ingrained in our genes from our ancestors as a means of navigation and worship. Also a lot of bad shit that happened to us came from the sky (meteors, asteroids comets ect)
