    That was a great video. I disagree with the guy when he said " . . . humans are inconsequential." I think he described us as "a thin film of life." Yet with all the searching for signs of life in the universe, we've found nothing. No scientist can explain where life came from or why it exists. For hundreds of years experiments have been trying to create life or even create the elements that scientist believe could start "life" and no one has been close. In fact as more experimants are done, it's become more and more elusive. Carl Sagan used to pontificate on how little and meaningless we are on our little Earth in our minor solar system, one of many thousand of solar systems in the Milky Way, which is one of billions and billions of other solar systems. Yet we are the only life and we can't create life. Doesn't that turn the "humans are inconsequential" argument right on its head? We're the only show in town and it's a HUGE town.

    We should see if we can name all the movie clips in that video.

    By far the smartest thing ever said on this blog.
    Other than yesterdays, "its got what plants crave".

    Mr Effort,

    Some of us have managed to create life without even trying to do so specifically – just playing with the instruments.

    Well said Max Effort. I'm sure Work Boot Man would agree.

    "on the scale of worlds, humans are inconsequential."

    i think sagan is trying to convey the point that when only considering the physical vastness of the universe, we don't amount to much more than dust but clearly the rest of the video relates to how we treat each other on our spec of dust is very consequential.

    most all of sagan's thoughts on the human condition arose in the context of the cold war with a constant threat of nuclear war. his arguments usually center on the folly of human quest for power at the expense of others. we choose to be either creators or destroyers during our time here.
