The Most Astounding Fact
Once every year, for a few days, I withdraw from the daily world, for reasons I can’t fathom, and obsess over/contemplate about the unknown.
For the past few days, I’ve been obsessed with Neil deGrasse Tyson (astrophysicist), it started when I stumbled onto the 8tracks playlist, ‘Contemplate the Universe Inside You‘, and I heard Neil’s answer to the seemingly simple question, ‘What is the most astounding fact about the universe?’
If you haven’t seen it yet (and even if you have), watch this video. It’s hauntingly beautiful (complete with one of my favorite The Cinematic Orchestra songs).

I can’t even begin to write down everything I’ve delved on after endlessly researching astrophysics and Neil’s speeches in general. But I hope this video has the same effect on you.
