    Looking at us, that we made it is really shocking. We all know that many societies were wiped out courtesy of another. One reason we made it is that everyone was not connected yet. The world was full of little feudal fiefdoms disconnected from each other. Villages. Tyrants with the disposition to wipe out the world had not the means. But they could play hell with their neighbors.

    Archimedes could figure out the volume of a sphere, but man did not yet know what to do with his feces. Pooping into a hole in your floor into a rivlet running beneath was the ancient equivalent of indoor plumbing

    Not too nice for the folks downstream where the water slowed and turds clogged on bushes and fouled embankments. They are still doing that and worse in India and other places. Public squatting is a tradition. I once figured out what the pile of untreated human waste from a single day globally would look like gathered in one place. Make um big heap.

    I read or saw somewhere that a famous cosmologist said the entire universe might be up to 1023 times more extensive than what we know of.

    00,000,000,000,000,000,000,000. Well, up to 99 sectillion times larger. I would call that a fairly extensive place.

    As long as it's not infinitely large we have hope to get from one end to the other.
