Awesome picture, we are always looking up and away but unable to look back at ourselves... refreshing outlook.

So what did the oppressed masses on that earth, enslaved by an exploitative credit system called "money", do to throw off their oppressors?

I don't know how this story ends.

What an eye opening picture, the one thing i took from this is that earth is a mere dot among an unknown number of dots. How far would you have to travel before the earth completely disappears from sight.

We are here for one and only one reason......that being to fill the void !

It is egotism to think we are somehow greater or lesser than the universe that created us all. I believe the universe went to great lengths to give us a consciousness to perceive ourselves and the universe. We are the universe observing itself... both great and small at once.

Awesome pic..peace and goodwill to all fellow earthlings!

From that distance, earth looks just like any other bright star. There is something familiar and nostalgic about looking at the photo from that distance....almost as though there is some ancient memory in my unconscious.

Stars explode all the time. Some burn out; some join and become binary. I'd like to think that when our time here is up we go on to other adventures out there. Maybe this is the proving ground.

O.K. I can maybe buy that explanation...for a moment I thought it could be another hoax after looking at the box of jewels at the messenger video picture of the day on the 17th...there are many doubles in that jewelry box...I do think that a real moon would be much smaller than the supposed moon is seen as here...whether filtering did it or what I cannot say...I just had my sense of awe and wonder at how the moon came to be so large...I studied both stories a lot to decide which to believe...

I like this attitude...were it not for our having the intelligence, equipment, and dedication, and every other success attribute we would not be now commenting on it, would we?

This is simply awe-inspiring though it makes me feel kind of lonely looking at this picture especially since I only see the Earth and the sun. Makes me think that those are the only two things there [even though I know it isn't the only two
].

Very breathtaking indeed. Truly makes you take a minute to step back and realize how small of a role we really do play in the grand scheme of things. Kind of sad really.

For me to jump that bandwagon, I need to see the rare earth hypothesis to be completely shattered.

Stating that a picture of earth with moon from afar proves there is life out there in the universe, as the person I reacted on did, didn't shatter anything. Your speculating on the vastness of space, the number of stars in it that could be harbouring lifeplanets might be true...

Nope, there's still just one little bead on the right side of my abacus.

Even if my gut tells me otherwise... even when I am tempted to lean towards... even when I'm flabbergasted by the vastness of space, humbled by the numbers of stars when looking up whilst zipping a brewsky or watching documentary after documentary, reading article after article about the infinite uni- multi- whateverse whilst popping another, I need the sweet shattering sound of this hypothesis.

I can only hope that'll happen, for I rather hope than believe.

A bazillion light bulbs floating in an ocean infinitely large will only emit light if they are within range of the right conditions.

That is to say, a bazillion stars floating in a void infinitely large will only produce life (intelligent or not is not the point) if they are within range of the right conditions.

We just happen to be smack right in a nice cozy spot. So for each star you see, the possibility of a planet having met the same conditions is quite good, considering the number of stars that we cannot see.

Somewhere out there, some quad-focal octoped is sitting in his back yard looking up at the sky through his quadoculars and pondering "Klee boop bol wear ke?" and concluding, as he dips his proboscis into his hot snurgle fungus latte, that surely there has to be another planet with life on it wondering the same thing.

I agree, I hope it will happen also, as a person that does not follow organized religions, the existence of aliens is sort of my religion in a way. To me, my personal opinion is that since you and I are alive, and considered an intelligent sentient being, that means that they must be alive. It seems that the workings of biological bodies are made to evolve, in order to survive and improve the gene pool ect. and since something happened that made our brains bigger making us intelligent,which means it must have happened somewhere else EVEN THOUGH WE HAVE NO CONCLUSIVE EVIDENCE THAT THE MASSES AGREE UPON. The hypothesis that we were genetically modified to be intelligent came from other intelligent beings would mean that we would not be the first for that to happen. Either way it still means we somehow became intelligent.

My opinion is we are in just another stage of technological/biological evolution, just another point in time on the grand time-line of things, which all intelligent species are a part of this time-line, where there are civilizations ahead of us and behind us. Now I hate to bring this into this, but somewhat like the mayan calender, which predicts that the world will end, ofcourse the world will still be here after 2012, maybe instead of the world ending it will end AS WE KNOW IT? now let me state that I do not believe in the mayan calender to be true or false, I would be pleased if it were true though.As the true saying goes, it can't be like this way forever. . .change is a never ending force that controls us all.

What would change the world as we know it? Either a eco/manmade event where the masses die, Also new species of higher intelligent species coming to uplift us technologically and change our warlike attitude and get rid of our nuclear weapons so we do not kill ourselves would change our world as we know it too. I've read about missile silos across the globe have had reports of unidentified objects hovering above the silos and after they leave the missiles are disabled and have to be removed. Which if you believe this crazy sh*t would fit into the story.

The best part of this is it has a possibility to be real,although it does not sound likely. The common person would never join the bandwaggon, as they do not spend the time to think about what could be out their, but there are people like me with nothing to do and just think about this, which is why what i've said you have heard already and de-bunked it or agreed with it or you are transparent in which they see both sides of the fence and open to anything[which I tend to lean on], which when it boils down to it you're either doing one or the other.

Also to answer "Stating that a picture of earth with moon from afar proves there is life out there in the universe, as the person I reacted on did, didn't shatter anything." No it does not bluntly prove that there is other life out in those stars, but it shows us that the possibility is there, which is why we're here in the first place right?

What do you think? Personal stabs, ridicule allowed but not welcomed.

If you don't mind me asking, why are we insignificant? What the fact that all the universe stories that has been fed to you is a lie? And that big blue sky isn't even a sky? Please tell me if anyone has actually been to space and came back down to talk about it? Nope no one has, because space doesn't exist, neither does that astronauts (sorry no spell check) that said they have been there.

Its a lot for you to wrap your head around I know but I'm sure you'll scuff this to the side and believe what you have been spoon fed to believe.

Life has been around for less than 300 years, we were not around that long, our existance is also spoon fed lies, those who choose to believe the non sence stories about anything conserning our race are really just zombies.

I've been seeing views like that all over the Galaxy for years. Astronomers do it the same way I do. This not an ad or Spam, it doesn't cost anything, and it's available for modification by anyone (including you) under GNU Public License (which basically exists just to forbid anyone from repacking it and trying to profit from it - it's open source). It's been my experience that most Truth Seekers tend to be fascinated by the Heavens.

You can start by going here:

Either way, thanks for the interesting Post.
