you can view humans on that viewer....just in the same way that you can view red giants, it puts things in perspective well.......but thats the point, it doesnt make you insignificant at all, it makes you as significant as a whole galaxy.......if you change your perspective (ditto the smaller things cw us)
I really dont get this whole <feeling insignificant when the universe is so large> nonsense that you humans do, as if SIZE is everything and the only measure of significance or importance (when in reality electrons or photons are hugely significant and important.......plus we are all made up of them, like our cousins - the stars)
I think that zoomer thing is great, but Im baffled by humans choice of words as a response to it
