How big – or small – are we ?


Oh, and yeah, of course, we’re the only ones.


And we know everything.

If I recall correctly, Diogenes Laertius, in his Lives and Opinions of Eminent Philosophers quoted Aristotle as saying that “philosophy was born by men looking at the night sky and wondering ‘what is the meaning of all of this?’”

Of course in 4th century BC you could actually see the night sky, as there was no light pollution from big cities.

That good old time when you had to be careful not to fall off the earth.
