Feeling insignificant after watching space movies

  1. Mar 21, 2015 #1
    I've had several people tell me that they feel insignificant after watching a show or movie on the universe. Personally I don't understand this, instead of feeling insignificant I feel a sense of wonder.

    Yeah, I feel the same. It feels fascinating after watching movies related to space, time etc etc... Interstellar was very good. What do you think?

    I wonder if it is related to the disparity between those who feel they have no control over the universe, and those who have the passion to learn and create.

    Well, I'm on the side of learning and creating. .

    And pray that there's intelligent life
    somewhere out in space
    'cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth

    I think it stands to reason that s/he has not.

    The Universe Song is the musical embodiment of the thread title.
