Song of the Universe
by Rob Rey
One voice sings, “Nothing matters.” We are insignificant specks on a speck in a vast uncaring cosmos. When our sun burns out, billions of years from now, it may be entirely inconsequential what happened on our home speck. A melancholy chord, but it also makes problems feel small and helps us to reevaluate how we spend our time. A reminder to live more in the present moment, rather than always fretting the future.
The other voice incants, “Everything matters!” We are here, now, wrapped in the real experience of our joy and suffering, enmeshed in a web of relations with all life on earth. Everything that we do has consequences that will be experienced by our fellow beings. There is profound purpose to be pursued in the improvement of life for ourselves and others. A melody of unity and goodwill.
Different though they seem, each voice tempers the other and blends in a bittersweet, harmonized hymn: a song of Cosmic Perspective.

Through countless mythological and religious traditions, humanity has proven to have a deep-seated need for awe-inspiring stories and the experience of wonder. With a powerful resonance, these stories provide a framework for understanding where we fit in our communities, and in our cosmos. They can also give a us a feeling of shared connection and participation with the rest of humanity, helping us to show our more caring and compassionate side.
What are the resonant, positive, and awe-inspiring stories of today? How can our expanding scientific knowledge drive our enchantment with the natural world and grow our empathic interests toward our fellow humans? Exploring these questions visually, Rob hopes to promote or create the stories that best help us to achieve these goals.
