The Fraction of a Dot


"The earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena...Our posturings, our imagined self importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the universe, are challenged by this point of pale light."
-Carl Sagan

Just something to listen to, it makes you contemplate just how trivial all our problems are when the magnitude of everything else is considered. This playlist features some excellent music by The Cinematic Orchestra and many more!

It's a shame you haven't used the actual image of the pale blue dot Sagan is referring to. The insignificance of earth is lost in the close orbital shot you've used instead. To see the actual pale blue dot image got to:

You'll need to look very closely in the top sunbeam over to the right. It actually looks more like a little white dot.

I used that photo for one of my other mixes featuring speeches by Carl Sagan, and I figured it wouldn't be in good taste to use the same photo twice.
