Has anyone else noticed that we are all insignificant specks on earth?

Has anyone else noticed that we are all insignificant specks on earth? We are all just emotionless slaves to the system, our 'society' if you will. Have you ever wondered why they told you that you are 'special' as a kid? When, in actuality there is another person exactly like you are right now. What is your opinion on the matter?

Yes, I have realized this. I usually will attempt to forget, but the question in my mind will flood in. I think that we are one of the only living species (humans, I should say, or anything like them) within light years. Many parts of the universe are unknown to everyone, and I don't count on them being explored for millions of years, or at least until the sun expands so much that the inhabitants of our planet will need to find a new home. Forever we will always be tiny specks, See More▼

Actually, yes, I have.

Pardon me, but I actually find it funny. We just roam around, doing what we think we please, when everything is influenced. How you were taught, your emotions, what you choose, it's all influenced. And it's fun. Humorous, really. We act like we have a purpose, we're different, when we're just here to run this useless system. However, there's nobody exactly the same. We may have a similar personality, or appearance, or get along, but we have different habits. See More▼

I know that fact all too well....how we are tiny specs on our Earth...We are not emotionless...as even those without a society have emotions...although they do not express them as...vibrantly as that of society goers....but it is true there is definitely someone whom looks exactly like me...or I like them....there are probably plenty who do the same as me...but with subtle variations...

Yes, I realize the fact that we are rather insignificant. We live on this planet, and are told that we are special, but what are our achievements really for? You won the lottery? Great, money has no worth and is really just paper given a name and value. You found the cure to cancer? Fantastic, a new disease will only come up sooner or later. You became famous? That's nice, you're still going to die, That's the thing, death, death is something that will happen to us all at one See More▼

I wouldn't know, there's a 100% chance I'd be dead long before then, and frankly, this idea of death... Well, I hate it. Knowing that my actions aren't that signifiant, and the fact that I'll die, only to be forgotten in a few years? The thought terifies me. So I do my best not to think abput it, saying things like 'live in the present' or 'treasure your time' See More▼

No. It's not, not to me. I don't really want to change the whole world, but I suppose I fear being forgotten and forgetting whch is why I try to convince myself that God is real when frankly, I don't believe in God, aheaven, a nirvana or a paradise, whatver you want to call it. If I died today, I'd hate it. I'm not satisfied with my life, and I don't know if See More▼

Yes but we are powerful beyond measure. We have the power to do anything we want we can kiss anyone we want. Take a plain ride to some far away place without telling anyone. Do anything we want. Although we have so much power and don't know what to do with it, it causes us to look low upon ourselves.

I have
I remember everyday
I am constantly reminded that I, like everyone else, are insignificant specks...
Yet, we are special too.
Because as the youth of this new world, we have the power to change it.
We may be insignificant and small now, but we can soon become important...
But mainly yes... See More▼
