A scientifically sound model of reality states that billions of years ago, an extremely dense kernel of energy/matter expanded due to unknown causes, instantiated time and space (and thus causality), and through partially understood mechanisms like gravity and exploding stars, eventually gave rise to life on Earth.
This, to me, is nothing short of amazing. McDonald’s is amazing. Trees are amazing. Reality TV is amazing. Humans are amazing. You get the point.
I used to dismiss certain phenomena as “boring,” but as I grow older I increasingly see boredom and monotony are a result of my limited perspective.
Because sometimes, I find it hard to believe that I exist at all.
