Is there a border we will never cross? Are there places we will never be able to reach, no matter what? It turns out there are. Far, far more than you might have thought…

  1. Wait Wait , when we say that beings living in Milkdromeda won't know that there are more local groups, we assume that beings that came before them, including us, didn't invent any technology to pass information from previous form of being to the being living in Milkdromeda. We are also taking a billion years time too lightly becoz even though there are Billions of years before Milky Way and Andromeda to collide due to increasing density, we still remain with the problem of exploring other groups , so maybe that means we need to faster. Maybe that's one of the motivations for people like Elon Musk.

  2. I would disagree with the theory that we would be able to inhabit the local group. There is no way we would get out of the milky way, period. The distance from the milky way to say Andromeda is the size of 6 milky way's put together. I would go as far as to say that we wouldn't even inhabit the whole milky way, only 1/4 of it at the most. At the very most. Not only is the space between galaxies vast, but the temperature of the hot-galactic medium between the galaxies is at least a million degrees.

  3. I never understood the idea that nothing created everything. Nothing begets nothing. It's forever in a state of nothing. It was never really nothing if it spawns a universe at any time.

  4. Kurzgesagt I have seen this video multiple times, it is by far my favorite, it doesn't make me feel sad at all, but extremely lucky that our civilization just happened to birth at this time, when we can actually see and figure out some aspect of how and when we got here, and what will eventually happen to our universe.

  5. Of course, this is just fictional. A giant spaghetti legged rabbit created us in a couple of quazarkondays. Out of crushed up bits of penne pasta and a leg of lamb.

  6. I am quite hopeful that we will grow to be a type 3 civilisation and develop some Super-Duper-Fast-Starship-That-Can-Teleport-To-Anywhere or something like that. We can't suspect as a type 0.73 civilisation that we won't as we haven't discovered much in the grand scheme of things.

  7. One thing I figured out in 1982 is that the ultimate factor is the power of the mind. We can go as far as we want if you put your mind to coming up with solutions. A barrier is a barrier. New ways to achieve things will happen at faster rates and with bigger achievements..

  8. there is a bit of comfort in knowing that future civilisations will never know what we did, that there is an almost infinitesimal amount of world and not just limited to a singular galaxy, no matter how big and endless that galaxy may seem.
