It's crazy to think about the fact that even though we have made decent recent advancements in technology in the past couple hundred years, we
literally know almost NOTHING about the universe. We believe that we are intelligent and all knowing because we can have conversations with each other
and drive automobiles/fly airplanes, but the sad reality is that we still have a loooong way to go. The universe is unfathomably massive, containing
some 100 billions known galaxies, each containing about 100 billion stars/planets, and we are just one of these planets in one solar system in one
galaxy. Humans have only made it as far as the Moon, yet in society some people have this misconception that we know everything about everything
already. It just blows my mind to take a minute and think about the vast amount of information and experiences that we will never get to encounter.
Even if humanity makes it another 1 million years (Which I believe to be impossible at the rate we're going), I bet there will still be countless
questions that we still will not have answered, and will be up for debate.
