    Just think.

    Just what are people fighting and bickering over?



    Nothing is significant with this kind of backdrop.

    Humans have enough ego to think the universe was specially made for them or vice versa. In reality, everything we have ever done, except for a few probes, has been on that one small dot.

    In addition, if you get just a few light years away, even our sun would be a fairly dim star, easily ignored.

    I kind of like the pale blue dot image taken over 30 years ago taken from voyager 1 as it reached the limits of our solar system. It does put things in perspective.
