Maybe you can understand a little better now that there are also many different realities ..... we just aren't open enough to understand/accept them.

We as a civilization have as much understanding of our place in the universe as a flea on a dog has an understanding of the earth. Does a flea serve a purpose? no it just exsists, its just a useless parasite.
Mankind likes to think of itself as something greater then what it is. What if there is no purpose for mankind? What if we are to a planet what a flea is to a dog? I belive there is alot of life in the universe and mankinds role isnt as important as it wants to belive.
Mankind not to long ago belived that the earth was flat and if you sailed across the ocean you'd fall of the earth. 1500 years before that they wrote the bible but yet people still belive in it today.

Great video but if you want something even more mind bending check out the opening shot from the movie Contact. It's CGI but it's one shot slowly pulling away from the Earth to show the known Universe, it's unbelievable!
Here it is off youtube, the quality ain't the best but it'll do until you pick up the DVD :
