"We are part of this universe; we are in this universe, but perhaps more important than both of those facts, is that the universe is in us." ― Neil deGrasse Tyson

I like to be reminded that we're a very small part of the universe, because it makes life that much more meaningful. We're the result of billions of years of atoms crashing into each other. How romantic is that? My understanding of the Big Bang Theory is still minuscule, but I am positively interested in theoretical physics, astronomy and any branch of science dedicated to learning about the universe. I'm very fascinated by people like Stephen Hawking, Carl Sagan and Neil deGrasse Tyson. I'm constantly trying to learn more about our existence and science has some answers. Philosophers have some answers and theories too. I just wish I could soak up all this knowledge, because I hope it will lead me to the path of happiness.

Over the last years, I've watched Stephen Hawking's The Grand Design, Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, Particle Fever, The Theory of Everything, The Inexplicable Universe and more. There is just so much to learn about our existence and why and how we've ended up here. For a better breakdown and explanation of how long the universe has been in existence, watch the first episode of Cosmos.

Always questioning #whyislifeworthliving. I hope you are too.
