Cosmic Reminder

A picture of Earth in front of the Sun. The picture was taken by the Huygens probe as part of the Cassini mission on January 14, 2005, during the probe's descent into Titan's atmosphere. 

Our galaxy is just a pixel in the universe, the Sun is a pixel in the galaxy, and even from the (relatively) close vantage point of Saturn/Titan, the Earth is just a pixel next to the sun.  You are not even an ant.  You are a glucose molecule in an ant's body.
