some truths

Yes, it is a truth- the vastest, most certain of truths, if one will- that our life is nothing, and our efforts the merest jest; our existence, that of our planet, only a miserable accident in the history of worlds; but it is no less a truth that, to us, our life and our planet are the most important, nay, the only important phenomena in the history of the worlds.
