Symphony of Science – ‘Our Place in the Cosmos’ (ft. Sagan, Dawkins, Kaku, Jastrow)

Symphony of Science – ‘Our Place in the Cosmos’ (ft. Sagan, Dawkins, Kaku, Jastrow)


[Narrator]
With every century Our eyes on the universe have been opened anew We are witness To the very brink of time and space [Robert Jastrow]
We must ask ourselves We who are so proud of our accomplishments What is our place in the cosmic perspective of life? [Carl Sagan]
The exploration of the cosmos Is a voyage of self-discovery As long as there have been humans We have searched for our place in the cosmos [Richard Dawkins]
Are there things about the universe That will be forever beyond our grasp? Are there things about the universe that are ungraspable? [Sagan]
One of the great revelations of space exploration Is the image of the earth, finite and lonely Bearing the entire human species Through the oceans of space and time [Dawkins]
Matter flows from place to place And momentarily comes together to be you Some people find that thought disturbing I find the reality thrilling [Sagan]
As the ancient mythmakers knew We’re children equally of the earth and the sky In our tenure on this planet, we’ve accumulated Dangerous evolutionary baggage We’ve also acquired compassion for others, Love for our children, And a great soaring passionate intelligence The clear tools for our continued survival [Robert Jastrow]
We must ask ourselves We who are so proud of our accomplishments What is our place in the cosmic perspective of life?? [Michio Kaku]
We could be in the middle Of an inter-galactic conversation And we wouldn’t even know [Richard Dawkins]
Are there things about the universe That will be forever beyond our grasp? Are there things about the universe that are ungraspable? [Sagan]
One of the great revelations of space exploration Is the image of the earth, finite and lonely Bearing the entire human species Through the oceans of space and time [Dawkins]
Matter flows from place to place And momentarily comes together to be you Some people find that thought disturbing I find the reality thrilling [Sagan]
We’ve begun at last To wonder about our origins Star stuff contemplating the stars Tracing that long path Our obligation to survive and flourish Is owed not just to ourselves But also to that cosmos Ancient and vast, from which we spring [Sagan]
One of the great revelations of space exploration Is the image of the earth, finite and lonely Bearing the entire human species Through the oceans of space and time [Dawkins]
Matter flows from place to place And momentarily comes together to be you Some people find that thought disturbing I find the reality thrilling [Sagan]Think of how many stars and planets and kinds of life there may be In this vast and awesome universe [Narrator]
With every century Our eyes on the universe have been opened anew We are witness To the very brink of time and space

    I'm sorry but that does not make any sense. How could there be more stars than atoms when stars are made up of millions maybe even billions of atoms

    Science Poem.

    The scientific method,
    is what separates us and the religious apologists,
    by definition we're in a constants yin and yang style of conflict,
    it's true that both existence,
    but only one is true and that's the one which should remain to stand and push us into the future,
    and the latter should surely fall back into the past in which it was forged, in the unknown, soon knowable world,
    in our primitive confused state of infancy we tried to answer the big questions of our Universe, 
    before there was philosophy there was religion,
    and the latter should surely fall, despite it's disbelief in the theory of gravity, it should surely fall.

    Think about this for a moment:

    You are currently a passenger (and, indeed, an integral crew member) on board a four-point-five billion-year-old, semi-self-sufficient spacecraft.
    This spacecraft flies in tight formation with billions of other craft–some, much, much smaller; some, much, much bigger–all relying on a shared external power source, which is billions of times the size of even the largest other ship in your formation.
    Your formation is just one in a grand fleet consisting of many billions of similar formations, all relying on an even greater shared external power source.
    Your fleet is currently travelling to intercept and join ranks with another similar fleet, billions of miles away.
    In billions of years, when the two fleets have successfully integrated, they will adopt a new course: a new mission–and they will continue travelling. United.

    …And we keep killing each-other en masse to see whose imaginary friend is the best.

    Infinite intelligence is equivalent to nothing, since you already ask and answers all the questions possible at once. You simulate every life possible and everything that can be experienced. This leaves with nothing to distinguish and perhaps you would create a random new universe just simulating it in your head. Maybe that was god and we are just his thoughts.

    reality sux .. what's the point of so much cosmic encryption?? is it because man shouldn't understand the "secrets" behind the 'curtain' of this universe?? or will it just become so dumb and boring if he realized that it's Not such a big deal after all once humans could unravel it?? whatever the reason it still seems to suck once probably one gets their head around this one… maybe only come to face even more enigma… it's like something tantalizing you all the while and right when you think yer gunna have that eureka moment, a big middle finger flies in yer face..

    Ya i know about human achievements, i only said what was the point of all this .. Imagine you dug deep into the workings of the universe and got yer head around everything you wished to know you'd still be probably shackled by your physical or whatever specifications like a a know-all fish who can't get out of the ocean or even change what others call the consciousness… Maybe this consciousness we know sux maybe if people could change the entire nature of this sucky consciousness then they could claim to be free.. I don't see this reality as anything special due to it'd enormous shortcomings and failures.. It's even self contradictory at times.. The nature of universe and reality seems to me far from special as whatever led to its existence seems to have been without forsight to say the least

    Symphony of Science, I came back to school as a military vet of about the age of 28. I have discovered my love of math and science and I'm currently a senior in civil engineering. I am so grateful for your videos. I show them to my son all of the time. My real love is astronomy but I didn't want to ruin my hobby with real work! Please keep up the excellent work. Carl Sagan speaks, IMO, for the best of humanity. He is such a great storyteller and he makes being a human being so prestigious, even given our terrible track record. Let's all keep observing the beauty of the natural world, and look forward to a better future for the human species! This is of course after we accept the responsibility that we must take care of the Earth as well as we can; the Earth will be here long after us…it is indifferent. It is up to us to take care of the species on Earth, and to venture into the cosmos.

    The cosmos are a way to know itself as Sagan said. It is time to know the basic, fundamental nature of the universe and how it relates to us: google truth contest and read "The Present". The first three pages explain the truth about life and death in 3 easy to read pages.
