    Nihilism: "We're all gonna die some day." Optimistic Nihilism: "We're all gonna die some day, so why worry?"

    How do we know that our universe is not a black hole itself? Expanding universe what we see would be an expanding event horizon. This concept was proposed by Dr. Nikodem Poplawski. Interesting concept imo ...

    Supporting local farmers by buying local produce as directly as possible cuts down on both factory farming, and the amount of transportation required to produce your food. It also directly impacts your local economy, and helps keep food on the table for farmers and the people they employ in your community! My goal for the next two years is to supply at least 90% my fresh food (meats, fruit, veggies) as locally as possible. Eventually I want my diet to be about 95% local, delicious fresh food :)

    Last night I dreamed about the black hole what I see about in my dream is that when you enter the black hole you can only see a one light then once you enter to that single light you can see your other self.

    I've decided that if brain uploading does become a thing in my lifetime, that I'd do it. Even if it isn't technically me, just a copy, I'd like to give that version of me a shot at the future that I could never take.

  36. Əhməd Cəfərli

    Yes, I can do.

    WHAT IF....mankind is ancient, like hundreds of millions years old, and evolved on a different planet. They evolved and got advanced enough to have interstellar travel. Also they realized that their advancement will be the source of their destruction. The planet was rendered inhabitable and as a last resort they sent out space ships to other habitable planets, but with a catch. They came up with a protocol that says that upon arrival to the new planet the travellers should set up primitive colonies, destroy all evidence of technology and basically reatart the clock on human evolution. Because if they reached the new planet and lived with same level of advancement, this planet would also be soon rendered inhabitable. Thats why they start from zero and hopefully if the civilization on this planet reaches the same point, the great scientists and thinkers would reach the same answer and repeat it. So mankind has been hopping around on different planets for millions of years and we are the product of our ancestors who arrived on earth and started from their primitive ways.

  39. help me i watched zootopia

    Finally ive been waiting tysm

  40. SolarTides

    I feel really disturbed, by the fact, that (once again) everything sums up to rational behaviour and change of political systems and change of the idea of growth. In every society there are groups who just don't comply. How can we reach these groups. How to persuade someone who is fed up with this topic? (The birdies 11:45 for example). "Nach mir die Sintflut" I dislike the idea of rational behaviour. Because the pandemic has shown, that masses arent able to be rational. People dont listen and people dont understand. And even if they understand and listen, political parties are still political parties with crusty and oldish ideas. When i vote (Germany) the main green-attitude political party, i vote a party which is against nuclear power and has A LOT of leftist (stupid) arguments as a byproduct. We have no political party with an idea of beeing sustainable in the 3 major fields (economics, ecologics and personal interest). "Vote with your wallet" - Got it. I think thats the easiest part. "Vote at the ballot" - Not easy at all. I dare say its impossible nowadays. The reasonable politician shown at 13:20 is a myth. I would vote .. but he/she/they/them is a unicorn. I feel lost...

  41. F Z

    So just looking at the statistics posed here, the expanse of the whole universe and the high probability that life could have evolved elsewhere but we still see no sign of it, is it really so difficult to believe in a higher authority that created mankind for a purpose. 🤔🤔

  61. Avipt

    Just look at Emus, they dont have wings, they have 2 small devolved arms with 1 claw on each arm. Also their feathers are not like normal bird feathers, closer to a....broom. The fact that i will never be able to see what a dinosaur really looked like is...heartbreaking.

  65. john hunt

    If we have animals then other worlds should have too ,to just want to seek out the most intelligent beings is missing a very big point ,even on earth, things like fungus could save the oceans by introducing fungus eating plastic to solve the plastic pollution ,advancement can only happen if a new world is studied in its entirety ,not just for its intelligent life ,it don't matter how smart a world is ,even they can make mistakes and overlook the solution stareing at them

    What if some humans survive like 250 of them and they start a new primitive life and after thousands of years after technology has been restored and knowledge about our past has been lost what would the new generation of humans think when they discover our ruins what languages will they develope it's just fascinating to think about it.

  71. Coffee Break Hero

    Maybe type 3 civilization, after being able to understand, perceive and manipulate the whole of their consciousness, just converge into going together into a massive perfect reality simulation supercomputer, that harvests energy from stable spinning black holes. Imagine consciousness in ai form post its own singularity

      "Those poor primitives with their physics bound lives" they must be thinking.
