The overwhelming quality of the universe is monumental indifference and lack of order.
It’s a statistical improbability we’re even on the planet, this miniscule speck surrounded by a myriad of uninhabitable, hostile and lethal stars that boil in nuclear rage. Look at the solar system from a satellite and see how utterly insignificant Earth looks.
The universe couldn’t care less about us, and I hope I never have to call upon it for assistance. What do they care, these stars out there, ten thousand times larger than Earth, billions of miles away?
Werner Herzog. Quoted from A Guide for the Perplexed, his conversations with Paul Cronin. Essential reading for lovers of cinema, art and life.
