Look around you right now. You are feeling pretty damn good about yourself. You are human, and you have conquered wood, stone and metal! We put our most precious idealistic faces of our most iconic heroes of our culture on tiny little coins. We even put faces carved into mountains in many places across this planet. But I am here today, to show you how small we really are.
While looking for structures in the Carina Nebula...and yes, I have found them in other nebulas, I came across a very large blue male face. Its not just a face, but the side of the face, made on purpose to stand out and for all to know. Much like how Americas put its first president George Washington on a 1.5cm quarter. Sure Washington has impressed America...but not the rest of the world. He is only impressive to the US. This blue guy in the nebula...he has impressed entire worlds, maybe whole star systems with his beliefs.
Next time you are strolling along the park and see an ant hill...give them a break and pass on by. Don't take pleasure in their pain. Rise above it. Its seems...aliens...are passing us by.
Now...whats your ant hill in life?
