For God's sake! Why don't we just rename this site Youtube.com and get it over with already! Oh fine, I guess I'll watch it.

Edit: If we're so inconsequential, then how did we come up with all those great films?

Interesting video (and great music).

And in his cranky way, Joshua's hit on it: We're not inconsequential.

Jatoha, did you want to discuss the video or just show it to everyone?

If you want to discuss it, what about it do you want to discuss?

I wasn't really intending it for discussion. I just thought it was cool, so I'd share. I've heard Carl Sagan's Tiny Blue Dot poem(?) before, but I thought this was a nice treatment of it.

The message that I took away wasn't that we were inconsequential, but how we are united as human beings.

Maybe I over-do the YouTube button sometimes.......

Yes, thank you for sharing the video. I also enjoyed the following, which is also based on Sagan's writing about the pale blue dot:

There is obviously some in-joke involved in this continual reference to jatoha as jahota. I wish somebody would provide a link to whatever the genesis of it was.

Carl Sagan's life was one of the rare precious ones.
