Life is an outlier

In the wide expanse of the universe, life is an unlikely accident. It is the result of coincidental circumstances colliding with coincidental circumstances.

On the timeline of the whole of existence, life is just the briefest of flashes. The universe existed long before life came about, and it will exist long after the flash has burned out.

In the data set of the existence of matter, life is an outlying data point in the wrong place. Wrong planet, wrong time.

Among the trillion species that have ever lived on earth, homo sapiens are just one.

Of all the things all the humans have ever said or done, your contribution is infinitesimal.

Life isn’t the big deal we make it out to be. Puts things in perspective, doesn’t it?
