I always forget that we are so small that its unbelievable and hard to understand and comprehend, but forget about it. I enjoyed the video, and I got a boost of interest for deep space astronomy research! To think about it, what of other universes than this one? What about thinking that a universe is just of many billion of something much bigger. That is out of my mind to think about.

Here is a number for you all.
Life exists on earth.
Means life can exist on other planets.
At even the smallest chance of life forming on other plannets.
Multiply that number by the expance of the univers which is infinate.
Thus, stating (Chance of life forming) multiplied by (Infinate univers) equals (Infinate life)
For arguments sake, lets imagine that primitive life happens once in the lifetime of a trillion galaxies, and out of those only one in a trillion ever evolves out of its womb planet into a space-faring civilization.
In this example then we are still left with an astounding 10 to the par 75 advanced societies - more alien cultures than the number of atoms composing planet Earth!
Again, for some perspective on such a gargantuan number, there are more advanced civilizations partying it up around the galaxies than there are atoms in every single grain of sand on all the beaches and deserts in the world, and then some!!
