    O.T: We all know that, but we're not insignifcant to the world... we may be, but we can also make a big difference.

    Note: Just worldwide..., for anything else we're insignificant

    The key is finding someone you are significant to.

    I've been thinking about this a lot recently. One day the world will come to an end and everything we achieved in the mean time would of been pointless.

    You're right. At some point the whole universe will come to a standstill and become "dead". But this point in time is so distant, that we might as well assume that the universe goes on forever.

    Too small or unimportant to be worth consideration.
    This is plainly wrong, as numerous people do consider me.

    And what is wrong with being insignificant?
    Also a single man can change the world, but in all honesty what is with so many peoples obsession to have a purpose? life doesnt need one, enjoy it.

    Being insignificant if anything is comforting, means that no matter what you do, no matter what others do, it wont matter, so live your life as you see fit instead of worrying.

    OP, we'll see who's insignificant when I rally the galaxy cluster and raise an alien armada mighty enough to conquer the Universe entire.

    What does significance or lack thereof on a cosmic scale matter at all to the average human? On a more practical scale, let's say at the level of society, one person can have a meaningful impact, and assuming that mankind might have a future in the stars someday, that impact might be more important than we might know.

    Your life is only worth what you make of it.

    Our existence is insignificant, and worthless. What we do with that insignificance is up to us!

    It took someone significant to define insignificant.

    Technically and scientifically insignificant, yes.

    Humans however are not particularly technical or scientific beings by nature however, and we've a knack for allotting value unto things we see fit; which generally is our lives and the lives of our loved ones.

    Personally I don't think it's wrong nor do I care where anyone gets their values from; so long as it helps them and does not harm others along the way.

    I've never understood the line of thinking that just because we're cosmically small or not in the center of the universe that it somehow makes us less important. We are what we are, and significance is defined by us. We're as significant as we think we are.

    You are completely and totally insignificant.
    On a macro-level at the vantage of the universe, yes. On the micro-level at the vantage of personal interactions with other sapient creatures, your importance may have no upper bound. Every interaction you have with another thinking being escalates exponentially as they carry the result of your interactions into their own and into the future causal chains, in a cycle that may have no end.

    It all hinges on how you view life, and your role within it.

    You are a child of the universe,
    no less than the trees and the stars;
    you have a right to be here.
    And whether or not it is clear to you,
    no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

    Everything is significant in the universe, in the end, all what is in us humans and our world is the same thing that created the univserse.

    It's called Universe for a reason, existing as a whole.
