Significance

From time to time I read or hear people talk about how unimportant we must be. In a universe so vast, on a planet so tiny, creatures like us must surely be insignificant indeed. And this, somehow, makes life pointless.

I find it to be quite the contrary. In a universe so vast, so void of life, tiny creatures like us, living on such a tiny planet so far from anything else must certainly be incredibly significant. Our existence would not make any sense otherwise.

The point? When things seem pointless, fundamentally they're anything but!
