Default Re: Thought these vids were pretty amazing

But you have to consider the proposition "seeing is not believing". Just because we can see these things through a telescope does not mean they are actually there...can anybody follow what im trying to say? This idea comes as a result of one too many philosophy classes. I mean, we can see it (obviously) but how do we know that those are places reachable? How do we know that they aren't any more than images? It's a weird idea i know and it is so complicated to understand that i swear can probably cause one to lose sanity if you think about it too long. IDK, it's just a thought.

Yeah I don't quite understand what you're trying to say. You feel that these distant stars and planets don't neccassarily exist even though we can see them? You say it's difficult to describe but I'm quite interested in what you're saying. Perhaps you can give explaining it another go?
