A short, but impactful interview with Neil deGrasse Tyson on The Daily Show.

[Only registered users can see links.]

There was so much in this little interview. One part that grabbed me was when they were talking about how it's a privilege to be able to contemplate the universe and its meaning. This automatically got me thinking about the idea that in the future when most of AI robots are doing human activities, we will have more time to think about the "arts", ergo one being the universe.

It almost seems as if most of society over the decades has lost this ability to think about such questions because they are so focused on daily life/profits/politics. If our new technology can free our minds, we might be able to save our species.......
