The Vlogbrothers and all of their projects have helped me realize that I can always take pride in knowing things and being excited by what I love.

Hank and John constantly entering new projects and writing and singing new things gives me hope that I don’t have to hit a plateau when I get older.

John specifically has kept my love for literature burning bright.

Hank has helped me understand science, which I have always loved, and helped me find inspiration in the wonder of the universe.

Quite simply, the Vlogbrothers help me find my light again.

“Somewhere” haiku


Somewhere
Somewhen and in there /
Flowing out and back again. /
Time’s arrow bending.

<div> —  <b><i>Stephen Hawking // Brief Answers to the Big Questions</i></b> </div><span><p>And one final point — we never really know where the next great scientific discovery will come from, nor who will make it. Opening up the thrill and wonder of scientific discovery, creating innovative and accessible ways to reach out to the widest young audience possible, greatly increases the chances of finding and inspiring the new Einstein. Wherever she might be.</p><p>So remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious. </p><p>And however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at. It matters that you don’t just give up. Unleash your imagination. Shape the future.</p></span>

<div> —  <i><b>Stephen Hawking // Brief Answers to the Big Questions </b></i> </div><span><p>… However, in a remarkable paper written in 1905 when he was a clerk in the Swiss patent office, Einstein showed that the time and position at which one thought an event occurred depended on how one was moving. This meant that time and space were inextricably bound up with each other. </p><p>The times that different observers would assign to events would agree if the observers were not moving relative to each other. But they would disagree more the faster their relative speed. So one can ask how fast does one need to go in order that the time for one observer should go backwards relative to the time of another observer. The answer is given in the following limerick: </p><p>There was a young lady of Wight <br> Who travelled much faster than light <br> She departed one day <br> In a relative way <br> And arrived on the previous night.</p></span>

<div> —  <b><i>Stephen Hawking // Brief Answers to the Big Questions </i></b> </div><span>It might seem that it wouldn’t matter very much if we couldn’t predict what comes out of black holes. There aren’t any black holes near us. But it is a matter of principle. If determinism, the predictability of the universe, breaks down with black holes, it could break down in other situations. … Even worse, if determinism breaks down, we can’t be sure of our past history either. The history books and our memories could just be illusions. It is the past that tells us who we are. Without it, we lose our identity.</span>

I’ve been reading Cosmos by Carl Sagan lately and I’ve found that learning about science is so much more fun and exhilarating as an atheist now that I don’t have some deity breathing down my neck the whole time.

RAVENCLAW: “We are a way for the universe to know itself. Some part of our being knows this is where we came from. We long to return. And we can, because the cosmos is also within us. We’re made of star stuff.” –Carl Sagan (Cosmos)

<div> —  <i><b>Stephen Hawking // Brief Answers to the Big Questions</b></i> </div><span>I think computer viruses should count as life. Maybe it says something about human nature that the only form of life we have created so far is purely destructive. Talk about creating life in our own image.</span>
