Forever Floating in Space

How is everyone not in a constant state of panic and awe about the fact we are forever floating in infinite space? We are on a planet right now flying through nothingness and nobody seems to talk about this. This should dominate all conversations! 

We can’t go anywhere that is not in space. I drove to the shops and bought a donut this morning in space.  I just ate a bacon sandwich on a planetI have never flossed my teeth when I wasn’t also rotating at over 1000 miles an hour at the equator and orbiting the sun at a rate of 67,000 miles an hour.

We are constantly moving. If you have a fear of flying then don’t because you have never not been flying. We are perpetually flying on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

So if you’re having a bad day, just remember how amazing it is that you travelled about 1,117 miles in the one minute it took you to read this post. Maybe slightly faster if you are reading this whilst driving, in which case DON’T USE YOUR PHONE AND DRIVE! YOU MAY BE JUST A MARBLE FLOATING IN AN OCEAN OF UNIVERSES THAT IS NEVER ENDING AND ALWAYS EXPANDING BUT DON’T BE STUPID!

I went to see Interstellar the other day so I’ve got space on the brain. It was awesome.earth 2

  1. I’ve thought about this too! It IS amazing. We walk around in the midst of the miraculous all the time and too often don’t even see it. Thanks for dropping by my blog – I’m glad to know about yours now too. I’m looking forward to reading more from you.
