Carl Sagan - Pale Blue Dot
In most recent times I have been watching a great deal of Carl Sagan’s… COSMOS! The more I watch his show & learn about this man, I am astounded by his efforts to share with the earth people, a very powerful message that, that will not only carry on threw our life time, but his prime directive & message will persist for many generations to come. Threw all of his lecturing & knowledge of earthly & non-earthly facts & history, at time’s you can hear in his voice discerning eye & a sense that the people of earth could be doing things a lot better for themselves, if we would just realize that we live on a pale blue dot, known as earth & that this pale blue dot resides in within a vastly enormous & highly immeasurable in size vacuum, known as the Universe. And of all the thoughts & history that has happen on earth, what we actually know about the universe is such a small fraction of experience, compared to the rest of the Universe. This universe has been living & expanding far longer then our known history on this planet. This expansion & growth in a sense has been going on far longer then any one on earth can remember & I’d like to add that this expansion and growth of the Universe has been going on as nature does, with out remorse or vindictive behavior. The Universe in my mind is a symbol & a strong example of how the people of earth should behave towards each other. This example we someday in my opinion be the propaganda of our livelihood’s.
