    seems like a knock off from the whole miracle bit Dr. Manhattan makes in Watchmen

    …unless your name is casemods.

    I’m confused by this positive message.

    This *is* the Internet, isn’t it?

    It’s because you’re a pessimist, Kori me old pal… Here let me dumb it down for you: Imagine we are viewing the universe the wrong way around, instead of infinity in every direction, its like a mirror image and we are the epi-centre. The very core of the universe is in your heart. The matter and conditions of our living are the result of huge swirling celestial bodies orbiting each other in space, they fling out matter and PRESTO here we are. Now God could be thought of as the highest possible potential of any human being. We are all… Read more »

    What if I just read that last line?

    dammit

    no, you aren’t. get back to work.

    Except that if I am insignificant, then all the people who depend on me are insignificant, as are the things I may create.

    Actually, if the universe is infinite, the chances of the exact same process that resulted in your existence happening twice approaches 100%

    The Matrix: Rebooted

    Wrong. There is, for example, an infinite set of numbers between 0 and 1, but each of them is completely unique.

    i think thats why tggeko said “approaches 100%” rather that saying the process will be replicated

    The Matrix: Rebooted

    But it doesn’t approach anything. Time (as far we know) is sequential and non-repeating. Going forward in time and expecting the same events to happen is the same as counting higher and higher and expecting the same numbers to occur. That’s not how numbers, causality or probability works at all.

    Hawking

    In an infinite universe nothing is impossible…just highly improbable.

    The Matrix: Rebooted

    Also not true. For example, there are an infinite number of integer, yet it is impossible for any two integers to form a ratio that is equal to the square root of two.
    You guys need to realize that The Hitch Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is satire, not actual philosophy.

    Tell that to the First Syrian Bank

    Why is everyone down voting you? Everything you are saying makes more sense than what they are saying.

    Korinthian

    If the universe is infinite, can it expand?

    limpgod

    The universe is cyclic anyway ( i recommend “Aeons Before the Big Bang” by Roger Penrose, brilliant man…no so brilliant presenter) So maybe you’re right in the sense that it happened before.

    might also just be a case for Mr. Mulitverse, who knows

    Blabla

    Complete line should read:
    you are enormously significant …. TO YOURSELF
    the rest of us don’t give a FUCK.

    A gamma ray burst from some dead star could wipe us out at any second and the rest of the universe wouldn’t give two shits.

    You are not special. You are not a beautiful or unique snowflake. You’re the same decaying organic matter as everything else.

    You know, there is so proof that finger prints are unique. Just saying

    Tomis

    No I’m not 🙁

    Tell that to the people of Tattoine.

    We’re dirt, we’re dirt, we come from dirt, we’re going to dirt, we’re dirt.
