The Universe.


One of my favourite things do to is to puff a joint and star-gaze. Maybe listen to my iPod as well.
The night sky is so beautiful. It's so meditating, so spooky but also so comforting. Just to think that the stars aren't painted on, they're real. They exist somewhere out there and they are burning bright. (Some of course may be dead at present but we are still seeing it's light.) It makes me feel so small and insignificant, but it's okay because I don't feel any worry for the problems I have at the moment. They just don't matter. The universe doesn't care, so in a way I feel they don't matter.
It's hard to explain what I'm feeling, but just go outside and look at the sky. I'm lucky enough to live rurally so there's not much light pollution here.
So much of the universe is just crazy, I could go on but...
This is ultimately my therapy.

enjoy.

I wish I could go out at night and look at the sky. I live in a city so it's not feasible. I'd be uncomfortable outside here and I doubt I could see many stars, if any.

Thinking about and admiring the universe is also my main therapy as well. Just thinking about how beautiful and mysterious everything is, and the insignificance is actually comforting. But also, I see everything as very significant at the same time, because it all is so fascinating, life itself is fascinating and how it evolves and changes. And to think that life on this earth will eventually be gone and changed, makes it more necessary to appreciate it. I like to think on that saying, that we are the universe experiencing itself, it really is wonderful.

I honestly think about it all the time, can't stop. It's comforting and awe-inspiring. It also helps with depression and anxiety for me, because I can see "reality" more and what really matters. Although, other people tend to think I'm strange and not focusing on what I should, apparently I'm not focusing on "reality" enough - their reality being acting normal, getting a job and conforming, I can't quite do that though, because I cannot forget about the true reality. We're on a floating rock in the universe, there is not meaning as far as we can tell, so I don't see the point in trying to distract myself from it and conform to our made-up society. I don't want to be distracted from the universe.

Hope I don't sound odd, but I really liked your post because I'm similar.

I've always been fascinated by that idea and would try it if I had a car and know a safe location. For now I just take trips to an large open field park, sit on the grass and daze off at the distance while listening to some post-rock. It's so relaxing yet uplifting, like I become more aware and accepting of myself. That's how I find a peace of mind.
One thing I really want to try is get a car, park it near a airport at night time and just watch the air planes fly by.

you're more than what you think of yourself

I knew I wouldn't be alone in this. I agree with everything you said, Monroee and infamous.
And Heyoki, that's a beautiful thing, isn't it? It honestly gives me such peace of mind that I have never felt from anything else.
Thanks for sharing guys.

Space is never ending so if was possible to travel faster than the speed of light forever you'd never reach the end. If you think about that too much your mind will get blown and you'll pass out.

How do you know for 100 % fact that space is never ending ? because I think that there must be an ending.

I just hope that when I die I will find out.

I would also like to know, was dark matter there before the big band , or did it created come about at the same time as when the big band took place

Is Carl Sagan your hero?

If ever I want to feel insignificant, I watch documentaries about the universe.
