We Ain't Really Living On
21 January 2015 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This is a really well done episode that deals with the death sentence we all have, including the universe. It would be nice to think we are immortal in thought and deed. Tyson tells us that we don't seem to have a connect with what has destroyed civilizations in the past and our activities probably will make our tenure shorter. The sun is going to die in five billion years, so what can our descendants do? The positive thing is that we can dream about what is going to happen. Our lives are so minuscule compared to cosmic time. We are speck in the time continuum. The dinosaurs lived hundreds of millions of years and we have only been around a mere moment. Also, what does evolution do for us. Will we evolve like the guys in "2001: A Space Odyssey" or Arthur C. Clarke's "Childhood's End"? What do we have to lose, but we need to start now to plan for the future.
