Awe and Wonder and Human Curiosity

This actually brought tears to my eyes. Especially the idea that the images we see in this video, started their journey to the Hubble telescope some nine billion years before some of the debris of our solar system coalesced into a fiery ball that would eventually become this planet of ours. Who needs imaginary magic, when we have this singularly remarkable universe around us and very likely a multiverse around that? Why would we play at simplistic dichotomies, for which there is simply no evidence, when we are a part - no matter how infinitesimal - of something so amazing?

Forget pretending - here we have the real deal.
