I am privy to knowledge. The object that everything is being drawn towards is an extremely large turtle with four elephants on its back and a large flat disk resting on their respective backs.

Step 1. Fix problem of the Sun becoming a red giant in 4 billion years and destroying the Earth.
Step 2. Spend the next tens of billions of years figuring out why the visible universe is being pulled towards one point before it's too late.

Your knowledge of ancient myths is duly noted. Though personally it seems that Atlas just said f-it and dropped the whole thing. Laughing

And the object pulling everything to one point is your mother.

(But the universe last I read was always expanding.)

Originally by: PopSci Article FAQ re 'Dark Energy'
[...] scientists discovered that the universe is not only expanding, but it’s doing so faster than ever before.


Objects observed by the team, inside the visible universe, were moving towards the Dark Flow. Not the universe itself.
Either way I can't wait to hear some of the theories people put to this, should prove interesting when General Relativity, as we understand it currently, is having a hard time explaining it. It's mind boggling what object(s) exist that can exert force and drag galaxy clusters from over 30 billion light years away.

Actually, obviously unlike you, I acknowledge and accept the fact the I am insignificant. Should I die now, beyond the grief of my closest ones, it would have absolutely no effect on the bigger picture. Just as the fact that if the entire human race was wiped out tomorrow, the universe would go on as if nothing happened for billions of years to come.

Except you missed how it points out you calling everyone in the world insignificant and then put yourself above everyone.

You are truly the king of nothing. *hats off at the jump of anger towards me though*

Step three after step two fails: Get as far away as we can with our life star.

I must admit I fail to see where I put myself above anyone.

We are limited by our own limitations as human beings, and limitations of the society in which we live in (and all of it's inherent/man-made flaws) but there is absolutely nothing to say for certain that we as a race cannot live for billions of years, or achieve things previously thought to be impossible.

Why can't we find a way to survive the death of our sun? Why can't we find out the mysterious forces involved in space? Is there any specific law of nature that demands us to be insignificant?

I can tell you there isn't. As in all things, you choose. Accept responsibility. Accept the fact that you are insignificant because you are weak. Too weak to shape the world around you. Too weak to choose. Nature has a way of dealing with those that are insignificant. It's called Natural Selection.

(Furthermore, while God may or may not exist, Human understanding regarding the matter is very unlikely. A God is not a God if capable of being understood by beings of a lesser quality, nor is it a God if it shares the same character flaws (Emotion among other traits) as the beings that worship it.)

Regardless, enjoy wallowing in your insignificance. Also enjoy attempting to flame me hopelessly about how insignificant you perceive me to be. (Perceptions and opinions are one and the same. They belong to you only.)

*note: That whole post is directed only at the subset of the human race that insist we are insignificant as a whole. They are dragging down our entire race and frankly are a scourge that should go be insignificant on some other planet so the rest of us can get some long-term planning done.)
