ufo, kansas, jodie foster

two days ago at the office, i chatted-away with a friend, topics after topics talked, then he asked:

“is it UFO a real thing or not? do you know any verses (from the Quran) mentioning about those things?”

quick answer from me “uhh…no, i don’t know any..”
then i asked him, “do you remember jodie foster in the the movie Contact ?”

i remember at the end of the movie jodie foster said :

“if it’s just us (in this universe), it seems like an awful waste of space….”

we talked about the movie, then we laugh,
“yea…even we, human, will not waste any space in our own house un-utilized, right?”

that night at home, clicking random links, i accidentally stumbled into an article in other’s blog titled “perspectives”

do you want to know how (scientifically) small we are?
read the original article by yusril, here.

or read an exact copy-paste of the article below :

Picture of Earth taken by Voyager over 4 billion miles away:

Carl Sagan said the following quote on May 11, 1996
about what he felt the photo demonstrated[3]:

We succeeded in taking that picture [from deep space],
and if you look at it, you see a dot.
That’s here. That’s home. That’s us.
On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives.
The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every “superstar”, every “supreme leader,”
every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there —
on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam…

I say, If Dust = “Dunya”, then treat it like that

look at the picture and read the comment carefully
then? so what? ….who is this Carl Sagan??
typing ‘carl sagan’ in google, got a direct hit to here , CLICK IT!

(just reading one paragraph, then i got a goosebump) Subhanallah… ouch… waduhhh….ampuunnnn

now you really know (again), how (scientifically) small we are…
we are merely a dust in this universe,
and we are less than nothing in the eye of the Allah Almighty


🙂 now go dig your mp3 collection, search “Dust In The Wind” by Kansas,
play it and sing along (with a feeling) 🙂

i close my eyes, only for a moment, and the moments gone
all my dreams, pass before my eyes, a curiosity
dust in the wind, all they are is dust in the wind
same old song, just a drop of water in an endless sea
all we do, crumbles to the ground, though we refuse to see

dust in the wind, all we are is dust in the wind

don’t hang on, nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky
it slips away, all your money won’t another minute buy

dust in the wind, all we are is dust in the wind

….now, let’s go (back) to work, and have a good friday everyone!…. carpe diem!
