Hello SOTGC community,
HRCaptain’s Log Star Date AD 7000
I have ample time to reflect and get super introspective these days given all the downtime available during interstellar travel.
The more I think about this, the more certain I am that we are, as humans traveling through space and time, very insignificant in the total scheme of the expanding universe.
Yet, as you know, we are individually and collectively ‘significant’ – to ourselves, others around us and even to the cosmic ecosystem that we impact with our programs, projects, architecture and cultural initiatives. It is our significance that keeps us striving for improvement in our lives, and our insignificance (and microscopic stature) that propels us to look beyond our boundaries for the larger meaning – or put another way – the search for why we are here.
I want to call this perpetual ‘reality’ we exist in as SIGNIFICANT INSIGNIFICANCE or affectionately Siggy InSiggy.
We are significant in who we are, but simultaneously insignificant against the backdrop of our vast and voluminous universe.
Well, and so what?
I think it is important to keep a perspective as we motor through time … it will keep us focused, mindful and more importantly, armed with a sense of humility amidst our perceived purpose.
Just my two bitcoins!
To be continued …..
In the future, everything is possible!
