simply amazing great song, very interesting material, great graphics, may be too much information in one single video, great job, amazing.

We live in a society exquisitely dependent on science and technology, in which hardly anyone knows anything about science and technology.

And with the sheer number of different species on our planet alone, added to that the mind blowing, unimaginable, number of planets spread throughout the Milky way, let alone the entire universe ... who the hell can still truly believe we are all alone.
beats me.

#10 In historical perspective we just a moment ago considered the earth as flat and the center of everything. I say everything since they really didn't had any clue of what was beyond the planet's. A star was just a light on a sphere-something, no concept of it as somthing similar to our sun - or even much bigger. Why not turn the question upside down?
How many civilisations are there in our galaxy alone? The odds for us to be alone are enormous, many times more for us to be alone in the universe. It's maybe impossible for us to be alone in our own galaxy.... wonder what kind of vid's they could show us 8-) 8-)

as you look an atom it looks like planets going around the sun and in the ending of this clip the universe looks just like brain cell so it seem by this video that the universe makes its shape simply by the same contruction methods as the atoms or cells and prety much every thing so it would be interesting to realise the fact that even the smalest and simpelest things make the larger be as the smal one is and so on it becomes the never ending cycle of... shit now im losing the idea of this... arrgh

Great : a Very nice compression of many theories in a pariod of 5 mns. Moreover, I like Coldplay.
Imagine each galaxy being an atome of a big body !...........
this body moving in his own universe => fractal again and again
it brings to the question of the infinity of the Universe !...

Just want to be another guy that says this video is amazing. It's mind blowing when you think about it. And the evident fact is that we know so freaking little about this. We are so unsure yet of what we are, where we are coming from etc. that it really makes our minds explode when we see something like this.

Makes me remember a quote I once heard: Doubt is the only constant.

Fantastic. Great vid.

It brought me back to this famous dialog:

Kroger: "Okay, that means that... our whole solar system... could be, like... one tiny atom in the fingernail of some other giant being. This is too much! That means... one tiny atom in my fingernail could be..."

Jennings: "Could be one little... tiny... universe."
