"There will be a time when all of us are dead. All of us. There will come a time where no human beings remaining to remember that anyone ever existed or that our species ever did anything.

There will be no one left to remember Aristotle or Cleopatra, let along you. Everything that we did and built and wrote and thought and discovered will be forgotten and all of this would be done for naught. Maybe that time is coming soon or it is a million years away, but even if we survive the collapse of our sun. We will not survive forever.

There was a time before organisms experienced consciousness, and there will be a time after. And if the inevitability of human oblivion worries you, I encourage you to ignore it. God knows that everyone else does."
