Does anyone else almost go insane with the knowledge that RIGHT NOW, our planet, solar system and galaxy are zooming through space at thousands of miles per second? I mean, when you look at the stars, how do people not collapse with the knowledge that we are basically a speck of dust jetting through the Universe on a giant frisbee...

Hello! I don't lose my sanity, but it is a bit much to conceptualize, is it not?

How do folks "not collapse with the knowledge", my view?

Willful Ignorance.

Our species is very adept at self-delusion.

I prefer to keep in my fore-brain, the knowledge of my own unavoidable demise, closer today than it was yesterday, AND the knowledge of our miniscule-dust-like-fleeting-high-speed-hurtling through the nothingness of space.

These awarenesses enable me to live a sweeter life!

A sidenote, the drummer is the athlete of the band! Certainly the subject of a "groupie's" desire, similar to their desire for the "lead". (except, of course, the SuperStar leads)

Why would it make you go insane?

We've known for some time the world is
round, so easy for it to roll along.

Go with the flow I say.
