We Are Not the Measure of All Things

This is a video of Carl Sagan discussing cosmology, or what we see the universe as.
I'm not necessarily into the pictures that are attached with this video.
That said, I've always really enjoyed Sagan.  He's one of the most eloquent and easy-to-understand writers on science.  If you've never read Contact, consider it.  As great as the movie is, the novel is much more complicated, more thoughtful and better. 
I love one of those last lines: "We are the custodians of the meaning of life...Let us find ourselves a worthy goal."
