Want to See Just How Insignificant You Are in the Larger Scheme of Things?

Do you really think that YOU are the center of the universe? After watching this video, you’ll be knocked off that throne quick smart.

When you only look at things from your own small, limited perspective, it’s easy to miss the bigger picture. How often do you contemplate how you and everything else fit into the greater scheme of things?

In truth, the Earth is but a tiny speck of dust in our Milky Way galaxy, and this galaxy is but a tiny speck of dust in the entire cosmos. When you stand back and look at things from a much larger perspective, and you begin to understand your place in that expanded picture, you will find it to be a truly humbling experience.

So watch this video, and see how your thinking changes as you come out the other side.

Having had many eclectic experiences and expressing interest in so many varied things in life has suited my role as Editor-in-Chief of Vision Times. Being trained in the sciences, I worked in the medical field. Scuba diving was a passion, being part owner of a scuba shop, and I enjoyed diving around the world. Raising reptiles of all sorts, including poisonous snakes, was also one of my hobbies when living in the U.S. After moving to Australia in the 80s, I became an avid organic grower of tropical fruits and vegetables, which my wife and I partake of year-round, as well as many of our friends. My newest endeavor has been to become a “bikie” — an eBikie, which I do every day not only to get exercise, but also to have a break from slaving over my computer most of the day. Obviously, China is also a passion, which is something VT specializes in, so I feel very fortunate to have a role here at Vision Times.
