I just watched a Kurzgesagt video on how far we’ll ever be able to reach into the universe. I didn’t know and had never thought about the things in the video. Not only are we limited in how far we’ll ever be able to reach in the universe as a species, as time moves on the rest of the universe won’t even be observable from our corner of it.
Even thought I, and anyone who’s likely to read this, will be long gone before this will matter it still made me feel melancholic. I guess sometimes I just don’t want to be reminded about the fact that everything will eventually end. Not just me and everyone I’ll ever known, will know or interact with, but every living thing – the universe itself – will eventually and.
