While this isn’t the Total Perspective Vortex, it does give one a sense of perspective. Those tiny flashes of light flitting by are entire cities, and any individual’s contribution to any of them is indistinguishable. That soap-bubble gleam is the extent of the atmosphere, all that stands between us and the cold inhospitality of an indifferent universe. Awful neighbors, difficulties at work, even bad traffic– all a happenstance of chemistry made possible by that thin bubble, and less than a flicker of a flash in the lights below it.
Yes, this sort of perspective may lead one to ask, “why bother?” But… it may also lead one to imagine great things.
