Oh I think we’re VERY IMPORTANT. Maybe not as a collective so much, but as individuals.
I look at it this way: If I let statistics rule my thinking, I’m dead. Over the whole course of history and the immense size of the Universe, I don’t even exist. I’m averaged out. Zero. Not important.
Yet: here I am. So, statistics? Size of the cosmos? I stick my tongue out at thee for I am here like emoticon
