Carl Sagan

I used to watch Cosmos when I was a kid. Carl Sagan is seeing a real resurgence these days. This video in particular captured my imagination. Somehow inspirational, in spite of how it shows humans at anything but our best. Humbling... perhaps that sums it up best.

I think I'm going to re-visit Sagan videos in the future here. There is so much to his words that is truer today than it was when he lived.


It is okay to feel small, or at least it's better than believing a convenient lie. Only when we open our eyes to see things as they truly are do we have the opportunity to experience reality for what it is, not just what we want it to be.

I could watch these all day, but I'd never get any work done.
