We may be insignificant. But we are not alone.
Together we are something more significant than anyone can imagine.
Nothing really matters. Even if you could live forever or change the world. The universe remains the same. It's about finding a meaning to your own life. You have to decide what matters.
I'm going to rip into another dimension, create a machine that creates energy and matter, and become god of this universe for the rest of its existence. Then I'll erase your existence and then we'll see whos insignificant.
Good to know, OP.
I'm far too selfish to consider the impact I have on the people around me, much less the people/beings on this plain of existence. My life span is the only one that really matters to me. That being said, it must mean that everyone else in the universe is insignificant until I can use them. Then they return to being insignificant.
Time is relative to your perspective. It doesn't really exist in the way we think it does. If you look at things as being separate from everything else than sure maybe it will seem Insignificant, But if you look at everything as being connected like it really is then things are very significant.
What would the Universe be if there were no Galaxies? What if there were no planets or stars? What would the Universe be if there was no life or consciousness to observe it? Would it even exist if there was no consciousness?
We are more than "Tiny Humans" living on a "small" planet that orbits a "small" star which is apart of a "small" Galaxy floating around space surrounded by other galaxies. We are the Universe.

Anyway, we have right now nuclear power, which could change some things more.
Some people(I'm not talking about you!) can't just use perspective. Because even if we could use energy from the whole galaxy, make black holes o even going back to the past we still would be insignificant for some people because we are(could be) in one of the many universe(I'm talking about Multiverse theory).

As far as I'm concerned, we've scoured the universe for more life and still not found it. Like matter is made up of almost entirely empty space, so is the universe. Empty space and dead planets made of some swirling gas and rocks. HERE is life. This tiny blue planet holds the only life in the universe, and that makes it, and what's on it, pretty damned special.
