The lead-up (one presumes; I haven’t had time yet to watch) is a long discussion of how after 10,000 human generations of struggling and suffering and inventing and inspiring — reaching demigod-like heights where we can watch a movie while eating dinner flying across an ocean — our little species is poised for misery and extinction, leaving the universe devoid of intelligent life until someplace, somehow, the same amazing process repeats a million or a billion years from now and, like as not, in a speck of time, they blow it all over again.
Or maybe not.
Quote of the Day
I sincerely believe … that the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity, under the name of funding, is but swindling futurity on a large scale.~Thomas Jefferson
