Dark matter, bright possibilities

According to this NASA article, approximately 70% of the universe is composed of Dark Energy. Dark Matter comprises 25% and the remaining 5% constitutes the stuff we know.

What we know is only a small fraction of the total amount of data existing in the cosmos.

As an optimist, I do not claim to be certain of the universe’s benevolence, but I am absolutely confident in the following: we never have enough information to be pessimistic.

Negative judgments, just like all other judgments which purport to be rational, require evidence. And since the amount of stuff we don’t know is greater than the amount of stuff we do know, the evidence for hopelessness and pending doom is inconclusive at best.

You don’t need to cheer up. Just open up.

The universe is filled with possibilities and we don’t even know the half.

  1. I find myself being pessimistic about the US economy especially in the metro NY area in which I live for the moment, as I have to derive income from a manufacturing base which is shrinking. I’m also a pessimist that the US as it is structured currently can survive given the house of cards we are built on. What does the universe have to say about that?

    1. The universe can’t say much about besides it is what it is and that it’s happening. We can’t change a whole about hte economy unlesss we pretty well strip everything and start all the way over. I’m pretty pessimistic about the state of our country as well, but all that I see we citizens can do is wait and watch. Either the economy will stablize or it will fall, we can’t say for sure. The universe will allow what it will only because it controls only so much of what actually happens. At least that’s what I think.
