thought experiment

If you’re weighed down by a tall order of things you oughta be doing at this moment, just as I am, I can lend you a helpful thought. Nothing matters, you see, if you don’t. And surrounded by vastness of a scale, complexity and diversity you don’t even have a chance of comprehending or even imagining, how can you? You’re a speck, that’s what you are. There’s no plan. You’re not destined to be anything more than a speck. There’s just too much going on around you for you to be the focus of anything. There. Comforted?

PS: While the above is true as far as I know, Pink Floyd has a counter-point. ‘All you touch, and all you see, is all your life will ever be’. Which means all that should matter to you is things that concern you. Dang!
