Are You Alone? (In The Universe)

  • Published: 02 June 2014
  • Are you alone? To answer this question we have to take a look what "you" are first. What are you made of and where you stand in this universe. Are you your body? Your atoms? And how are your parts connected to the big picture?

    You can get the MUSIC of the video here:

                                                I'm pretty certain The Milky Way is set to collide with Andromeda Galaxy (M31) 2-3 billion years before the Sun is set to explode. So there really isn't any way to be certain of what will happen to Earth if The Sun even gets the opportunity to move past its main sequence.

Even particles fight for their "survival" so to speak. When we are not part of the primordial soup anymore, physically but only quantumly, then this things called individuality appears. It's related to consciousness as well. Since we live in mutuality with many microorganisms like bacteria and we don't notice it without science and they microorganisms don't realize what we are or what they are. They can never feel "alone". It's complicated. We have to delve deeper into the mind and consciousness before we can understand loneliness as something real.

                                                                      To try and understand that all of the matter we know that ever existed in the universe, created somehow. Atoms, got created at some point in time.
