EX. Observing and considering the cosmos can make you feel small; after all, what is a man to the world? What is a planet to a star? What is a star to a galaxy? What is a galaxy to a universe? What is any finite object or objects observable compare to the seemingly infinite? Can one person, one finite observer, ever begin to comprehend the cosmos?
Many people are afraid to think about the immense reality the cosmos because it makes them feel small. But I don't concern myself with feeling small. I feel like, rather than being part of something small, rather than being part of something finite, and rather than there being a clear end of the discoveries to discover in sight, that we are all part of something infinite. And that may be intimidating, but it is also compelling.
So, join Neil deGrasse Tyson on the infinite journey of human discovery and keep moving toward the horizon. There is no end to the journey, but there are many discoveries. Life doesn't "end". It "ands".
