The responsibility of being the awareness of the universe is a heavy one, right? It's almost like we could ruin our environment and die out.
Like the old 'if a tree falls in the woods' thought experiment. If nobody is around to be aware of the universe, does it really exist and would it even matter?

The angular diameter of the Moon is proportional to the ratio of the Moon's physical diameter (3476 km) to its distance from Earth (about 384,400 km from the Earth's center on average). Using the small angle approximation, this angular diameter as measured from the center of the Earth works out to be about 0.518 degrees (31.1 arc minutes; a small correction would be needed to account for the fact that the observer lies somewhere on the Earth's surface). However, the Moon's center may be as far away as 406,600 km and as near as 356,600 km from the Earth's center1. These angular diameters are 0.490 degrees (29.4 arc minutes) and 0.558 degrees (33.5 arc minutes), as measured there
29.4 arc minutes + 33.5 arc minutes = 62.9
Take the average
62.9/2 = 31.45
Pi of a circle = 3.1415
which is one thousandth percent of difference between these values.
The Intelligent design of Earths moon is all to obvious.
You're wrong. Science reveals many wonders. Just because it has no fairies, and sees no need for fairy dust, does not make the findings of it incorrect or somehow not wondrous.
In spirituality, nondualism, also called non-duality, means "not two" or "one undivided without a second". Nondualism primarily refers to a mature state of consciousness, in which the dichotomy of I-other is "transcended", and awareness is...
