    You've seen holographic DVD covers or posters and stuff right? A flat 2-D surface with the illusion of 3-D depending on where you view the image from?

    Yeah, it's sort of like that. But also nothing like it, but just think of that.

    One of the men who did work on the holographic universe hypothesis tried explaining it to someone on a documentary and they courteously said "I think I get it" and he said "Well you shouldn't. If you think you understand it I haven't expained it well enough".

    10,000 galaxies...each with a billion to a trillion stars and most of them have planets... you know what this means?

    There is a high probability that somewhere in that photo is at least one alien civilization!:awesome: Sure we cant see them, but they are there in one or more of those galaxies.

    That's gorgeous :woot:. My gosh, it's amazing realizing just how vast the universe truly is.

    I agree with you Marvolo.

    Blows my mind each time I think of the vastness of space and the universe. I often wish I had been born several years in the future when we become a space faring culture and explore everything. Plus I could gorge on tons of Marvel films

    I wonder if we could some day find the remains of Theia now that we have an idea of its chemical makeup? That would be pretty insane if we found chunks of it floating in the Oort cloud.

    The Fermi Paradox: Where is everybody?

    http://waitbutwhy.com/2014/05/fermi-paradox.html

    This was an absolutely fascinating read that's easy to grasp and it boggles the mind so I wanted to share it. I'm gonna post it in a couple other threads. To the mods, I don't do this to spam, but to share this. It's really cool stuff.

    I skimmed through it and there is a lot of good pros, cons, what-ifs, maybes and all around reasonable explanations for almost all the theories out there regarding life in the universe.

    I say almost of course meaning that the truth is the government really is hiding alien life from us (those bastards) is dismissed as a joke. :argh:
