No matter how many times I see deep field images, I am always in a state of AWE! Thanks for sharing this photo with us here. I hope this photo will
affect others has it has me.
Carl Sagan had a big influence on me, and just looking at our universe like this puts our little blue mote into perspective!
Not to mention when looking at this, its assuring to know we are not alone here. And while we as humans may never be able to travel these vast
distances. I am almost positive there are machines and Robots who make these trips! And are out there right now, making those long distance hauls
that mortal flesh just can make.
Granted that is if they are traveling around in the context of how we are thinking about it.
The mortals that travel the universe must have a better and faster way to go about this, Via Wormholes or other unknown to us methods.
Yet I can feel that by using machines, these machines could travel for thousands of years, and not worry about that mortal flesh.
But you would have to think, even if we did send machines to another place. By the time they got out there and traveled for a few hundred years, we
would have upgraded the first wave of machines to something better. Hence wave 2 would be one step better, and wave 3 ect ect ect. That is speaking
in our context, and how we see things.
How many other humans are out there? That is not counting the countless other life forms.. But just other humans like us. I bet more than we would
As for all the life we have here just on Earth, is an example of how diverse the universe itself could be.
How many different types of life forms just on one little blue mote?
Times that by the size of our universe, and just think of all the types of archetypes that are out there!
Mind boggling! And very exciting! It shows us the limited parameters of the human mind, and allows those parameters to expand just a little bit
