  • Just to make you feel insignificant

    Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving And revolving at nine hundred miles an hour, That's orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it's reckoned, A sun that is the source of all our power.
    The sun and you and me and all the stars that we can see Are moving at a million miles a day In an outer spiral arm, at forty thousand miles an hour, Of the galaxy we call the 'Milky Way'.

    Our galaxy itself contains a hundred billion stars.It's a hundred thousand light years side to side.

    It bulges in the middle, sixteen thousand light years thick, But out by us, it's just three thousand light years wide.
    We're thirty thousand light years from galactic central point.

    We go 'round every two hundred million years, And our galaxy is only one of millions of billions In this amazing and expanding universe.

    The universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding In all of the directions it can whizz As fast as it can go, at the speed of light, you know, Twelve million miles a minute, and that's the fastest speed there is.

    So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure, How amazingly unlikely is your birth, And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space, 'Cause there's bugger all down here on Earth.
    Patience is a virtue.

      Okay - someone tell me how the the hell can humans work all this out while they sit on their bums down here on Earth?

      It wasn't that long ago we thought the Earth was flat - so how do we think we know any better now?

      Cheers

        I read in a book somewhere that some of the most important and Earth shattering discoveries are not known to the general public.

        They are kept hidden because the scientists who control what we are taught in schools and adulthood may have presented a different and possibly wrong view of a subject. How much would it cost to rewrite all the books, journals and re-educate all those people if the facts were found to be incorrect?

        These scientists in power could lose their funding and their ego’s would take a hit if the truth was presented.

        It makes sense when you think that most of the scientists in power have mortgages, debit and families. It may have taken them decades to get where they are based on a false truth that they have presented and at the time truely believed it correct.

        If some discovery was presented to them that caused their own funding to be cut and possibly their own life’s work to be dismissed as wrong wouldn’t they want to block the real truth from coming to light?

        At the end of the day you may think this absurd but don’t humans spend almost 95% of their time thinking about themselves?

        Isn’t it true that the bulk of people who control the information in this world need a job to pay the bills? And hardship would fall on them if they lost their job or funding?

        Personally I don’t believe even half of what you read in text books and from media because the source comes from a human and we all have our own agendas.

        Didn't the powers that be tried to stop the truth from coming out that the world was not flat? Why is it any different now?

          Don't believe everything you read

          There is a kernel of truth in this in that often what you get taught in school in regards to physics etc isn't really correct. What you get is physic lite or physics for dummies. Much the same applies to early undergraduates at University. The explanation isn't sinister though it is simply if you present things at the most correct level first people will not understand, you need to lead them towards the truth with close to correct explanations first.
