Ocean Sky from Alex Cherney on Vimeo.

The earth has a transparent atmosphere. We’re not always shrouded in clouds. We don’t have rings around our planet to obscure our view.

The sun is placed in the galactic arm so that we’re not crowded by other stars but have a clear view of the universe.

And this planet, in this place, is populated with a species that can look to the night sky and wonder. The species is intelligent enough to create better and better instruments to look deeper and deeper into that night sky.

And a religion gained ascendance among that species which understood that the creation was not the same thing as the Creator and therefore exploration isn’t blasphemy but worship. This religion teaches that the Creator is rational and reasonable and so the creation is too and therefore can be understood.

Our view of the beautiful universe is no accident.
