    The universe is a pretty big place. If it's just us, seems like an awful waste of space.

    I'm convinced that this is a huge part of why flat earthers exist. The thought of being cosmically insignificant scares them, so they sweep the existence of space under the rug.

    It's hard to imagine something so vast, numbers don't give a good perspective on how big the universe actually is, when i hear someone say that there is no other life outside of earth that sounds impossible because of the size of the universe. Sometimes i imagine an alien race on the opposite side of the universe, and how they wonder if they are alone, i believe that it's impossible for 3 dimensional beings to comprehend how massive the expanding universe is. There isn't a word that can describe how massive, terrifying, beautiful and miserable the universe is.
