Default Why try?

In our galaxy alone, there is around 100,000,000,000 billion stars. In one tiny corner of the sky, there are billions of other galaxies.

You are an insignificant speck of carbon, so small relative to the universe that you can't even comprehend it. I can guarantee that with your life, the universe won't ever notice you.

So why try? Why not just give up life? (No, I'm not turning emo, but it's a serious point to consider).

Because even though the universe is so large, it doesn't have the power to affect your life in any meaningful way. Unless of course an asteroid hits the earth or we're invaded by aliens. THEN why try?

Because through small changes comes big changes. Think Star Trek. Just imagine, we could be regularly visiting other worlds in the next 100 years or so. Of course, this doesn't change the fact that we are relatively nothing compared to the bigger picture of the cosmos.

Here's something to think about though: We are a way for the universe to know itself. We give this vast emptiness of space a consciousness. (Carl Sagan's words)

The only reason you are asking this is because society, especially medieval societies once considered humans as special. Now that there is no such thing as a qualitative universe, it seems as if our importance is dethroned.

I think the opposite to what you think in a progressive sense. Humans have obtained flight, went to the moon, and harnessed the power of the atom. If man does not obliterate itself, I believe the possibilities of what could be achieved; may be boundless.

Because without a conscious body, there would be no Universe with which to house said body.

We as living beings are that conscious body, and as far as we know there are no other such bodies in the entirety of existence. Therefore, without an observer to an event, the event cannot be said to exist.

If we don't live, then the Universe means nothing more to us than we to it. It's a self sustaining cycle that keeps the entire concept of existence going.

The universe maybe large, but that changes nothing. As Sage said, if we don't live, we mean no more and no less to the universe than it means to us. It's complete nonesense if someone really thinks that the volume or mass of something matters, because it really doesn't.

This.

As he said, neither us nor the universe can exist without the other.

As was said before, little changes can add up to big ones. One never knows how his/her contribution to something, however small it may seem in the "grand picture", will actually affect that grand picture. Just because one may think his/her actions are being performed on a small scale, the area of effect over which those actions have effect can be much more significant than anticipated.

That is a human perspective of reality though, and thus is not necessarily universal truth.

Whether or not the universe notices you, you'll always notice yourself.

If I'm stuck here 80 years, I might as well do something useful.
