Are we spacey or just universal?

Posted on May 2, 2008. Filed under: Science, Spirituality |

The video puts it all into perspective.

But come back, because I have something else to show you.

It’s easy to take this all too seriously…so another perspective lightens it up a bit.

clip from Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life
My apologies to you slow-loaders. [I refer here to the speed of your Internet connection; this is not meant to imply anything about your personal capacities] πŸ˜€

And, finally, I looked for a quiz that would go with the space vids, and found two. Apparently I’m from Pluto (is it still a planet? do I exist at all?) and I’m set to rule Saturn. I’m ready… πŸ˜‰


You Are From Pluto


You are a dark, mysterious soul, full of magic and the secrets of the universe.

You can get the scoop on anything, but you keep your own secrets locked in your heart.

You love change and you use it to your advantage, whether by choice or chance.

You don’t like to compromise, to the point of being self-destructive with your stubborness.

Live life with love, and your deep powers will open the world to you.

What Planet Are You From?

You Should Rule Saturn


Saturn is a mysterious planet that can rarely be seen with the naked eye.

You are perfect to rule Saturn because like its rings, you don’t always follow the rules of nature.

And like Saturn, to really be able to understand you, someone must delve beyond your appearance.

You are not an easy person to befriend. However, once you enter a friendship, you’ll be a friend for life.

You think slowly but deeply. You only gain great understanding after a situation has passed.

What Planet Should You Rule?

interesting videos! the first one, while it tries to illustrate just HOW BIG the universe really is, still remains meaningless to me. i only know it’s so big i can’t even fathom it! πŸ˜› as for the second video, i don’t quite get the monty python bit where they showed a visual of a woman pregnant then err… 😳

my quiz results:

You Are From Saturn
You’re steady, organized, and determined to achieve your dreams.
You tend to play it conservative, going by the rules (at least the practical ones).
You’ll likely reach the top. And when you do, you’ll be honorable and responsible.
Focus on happiness. Don’t let your goals distract you from fun!
Don’t be too set in your ways, and you’ll be more of a success than you ever dreamed of.

mostly not accurate!

You Should Rule Mercury
Close to sun, Mercury has very long days – and is rarely visible to the rest of the solar system.

You are perfect to rule Mercury, because you live for the present – and can truly enjoy a day that goes on forever.
Like Mercury, you are quick and elusive. Your wit is outstanding, and you can win any verbal sparring match.

Some people see you as superficial, but in truth, you just play many roles and have many interests.
A great manipulator, you usually get what you want from people. And they’re happy to give it to you.

totally inaccurate!

meh!!

Thanks for watching both of them, sulz. I know what you mean, that first one is wonderful and I love it, but the numbers are so large they’re incomprehensible…kind of like the amount of the US national debt. πŸ˜‰
As for the Monty Python, I think they’re trying to portray a mother goddess giving birth to the Universe, or something, but we can’t take them too seriously. If we did, we’d all be eating spam for breakfast everyday, instead of deleting it from our emails and blogs. πŸ™‚
I thought my own quiz results were pretty accurate, at least in how I perceive myself, but yours do seem a little off. I like “you’ll be honorable and responsible” –because you are! and “Focus on happiness” –indeed! and “Your wit is outstanding” –I agree! A lot of this sounds like it’s describing another person, though. I never quite know what to make of these quizzes…

This is so freaky. I have never seen the first video which is awesome. I am an amateur astronomer and just last night I did a meme and #3 on my meme which I wrote the day before you posted this pretty much says the same thing that is on that video. Oh and I took that test and I am also Pluto which is not even a planet anymore. So what’s that all about? πŸ™‚

You Are From Mercury
You are talkative, clever, and knowledgeable – and it shows.
You probably never leave home without your cell phone!
You’re witty, expressive, and aware of everything going on around you.
You love learning, playing, and taking in all of what life has to offer.
Be careful not to talk your friends’ ears off, and temper your need to know everything.

You Should Rule Mars
Mars is a planet that shines brightly and loops wildly around the solar system.

You are perfect to rule Mars, because you are both energetic and independent.
Like Mars, you seems attractive and bright to others – but you’re difficult to pin down.

You are a great thinker, but you only think in the present and ignore the future.
Full of enthusiasm and inspiration, you are into your own thing… and rather insensitive to others.

Hey!!!

Very close! O.o

The first video went all wonky on me.

The quiz:

I am from mercury:
You are talkative, clever, and knowledgeable – and it shows.
You probably never leave home without your cell phone!
You’re witty, expressive, and aware of everything going on around you.
You love learning, playing, and taking in all of what life has to offer.
Be careful not to talk your friends’ ears off, and temper your need to know everything.

I should also rule it! LOL

Close to sun, Mercury has very long days – and is rarely visible to the rest of the solar system.

You are perfect to rule Mercury, because you live for the present – and can truly enjoy a day that goes on forever.
Like Mercury, you are quick and elusive. Your wit is outstanding, and you can win any verbal sparring match.

Some people see you as superficial, but in truth, you just play many roles and have many interests.
A great manipulator, you usually get what you want from people. And they’re happy to give it to you.

Gah… not only can I not load the videos, they cause my internet connection to disconnect! 😦 Hope this comment sends!

I really enjoyed the videos πŸ™‚
The first one was particularly cool IMO

Pluto and Venus were my quiz results

Venus is a mysterious, stormy planet – shrouded in a thick layer of clouds.

You are perfect to rule Venus, because you are quite emotional and volatile yourself.

Your emotions change as rapidly as the weather on Venus, and both you and the planet are incomprehensible to others.

While you are not a logical thinker, you are quite empathetic.

You can care for and understand others, but your emotions swirl too quickly to truly understand yourself.

Thanks Muse and best wishes to all πŸ™‚

You Are From Jupiter

You are exuberantly curious – and you love to explore newness.
Enthusiastic and optimistic, you get a kick out of stimulating intellectual discussions.
Foreign cultures and languages fascinate you. You love the outdoors, animals, and freedom.
Chances are you tend to exaggerate, so try to keep a lid on that.
If you do, you’ll continue to be known for your confidence, generosity, and sense of justice.

You Should Rule Jupiter

Huge and hot, Jupiter is a quickly turning planet with short days and intense gravity.

You are perfect to rule Jupiter, because you are both dominant and kind.
You have great strength and confidence, but you never abuse your power.

You are always right. Even if you make mistakes, you compensate for them… before anyone knows it.
Headstrong and ambitious, you always have a goal in mind. You are optimistic and believe thing things will always work out.

I am from Jupiter for sure and this last statement is very true ”You are optimistic and believe thing things will always work out.”

Hmmm, seems as though I should rule Saturn. I’m not accepting that easily! I couldn’t find the place for the planet I’m from. Perhaps it hasn’t been found yet, that would make sense to me:)

That is really freaky, joanharvest! I remember you saying you were an amateur astronomer. I’d better go check out that meme! And yes, we ex-planets have to stick together—until we figure out what we actually are πŸ™‚

Wow, this does sound very much like you, Will! Until the last line, that is. I certainly don’t experience your supposed insensitivity; in fact you are most welcoming and receptive of the diverse points of view your blog attracts. Hail King of Mars! πŸ˜‰

Looks like a couple of you had trouble with the video, thebeadden. I’m sorry about that—it still works fine for me in two browsers. Here’s a direct link to it on YouTube. Perhaps you’ll get it there; it’s really worth watching. So, you get to rule the planet you’re from! That does save some travel time. πŸ™‚ I can see many of these qualities in you, like learning, playing, and many roles and interests.

Oh, I’m sorry, B0bby! `Crashing connections’ is not the kind of experience I’d prefer my friends have when visiting here! Perhaps the link in my above reply to thebeadden will work for you. Anyway, you could still take the quiz…Which is the most media-oriented planet I wonder? Thanks for stopping by. πŸ™‚

Really glad you liked them, brightfeather. I agree that first one is amazing. I enjoy opportunities to project my consciousness off our little planet from time to time. These quiz results really sound like you, a lot…except…what is that about you not being a logical thinker? I think you’re wonderfully able to be both empathetic AND logical! Good wishes to you, my well-seeing friend. πŸ™‚

Colourful Vision, I have to agree with your agreement about yourself! (if that makes sense. πŸ˜‰ ) It’s good you’re able to rule your home planet, as you seem to have such an affinity for it. This description makes you sound like the fascinating person I know you are. Cheers!

yogini, I have the feeling you are not even from this galaxy, so the quiz did the best it could. πŸ˜‰ Well, it will be fun to keep looking for your origins. In the meantime, you remain a Person of Mystery, which is just fine! πŸ™‚

It’s OK Muse, sorry about earlier, the page loaded now.

That first video was very humbling and very interesting, but also kind of fun. The second was… silly. Catchy tune, though.

Took the quizzes:

You are from Neptune
You are dreamy and mystical, with a natural psychic ability.
You love music, poetry, dance, and (most of all) the open sea.
Your soul is filled with possibilities, and your heart overflows with compassion.
You can be in a room full of friendly people and feel all alone.
If you don’t get carried away with one idea, your spiritual nature will see you through anything.

You should rule Mercury
Close to sun, Mercury has very long days – and is rarely visible to the rest of the solar system.
You are perfect to rule Mercury, because you live for the present – and can truly enjoy a day that goes on forever.
Like Mercury, you are quick and elusive. Your wit is outstanding, and you can win any verbal sparring match.
Some people see you as superficial, but in truth, you just play many roles and have many interests.
A great manipulator, you usually get what you want from people. And they’re happy to give it to you.

Hmmm… as always, my quiz results leave me unconvinced. Since when have I been quick-witted, or loved the open sea more than I love music, dancing and poetry? As for psychic ability…

Poor Pluto. I still think that was kind of sad, and I still can’t get used to the idea of there being only eight planets in the solar system. They’d better hurry up and discover another soon, it’s too confusing otherwise!

muse – I laughed when I read that. That’s me, jack-off-all-trades, master of none. I couldn’t keep to one thing even if I were tied down. I get bored so easily and have to find new things to do or learn all the time. πŸ™‚

Thanks for the link. I’ll check it out now.
Take care my friend πŸ™‚

Oh, good, B0bby, I’m glad you got to see it, and thanks much for coming back to tell me! Interesting you used the word “humbling” to describe the first video. Indeed. There is so much out there we don’t have a clue about on our little blue ball. Hmmm, your quiz results, especially the first one, don’t seem all that much like what I know of you, but I suspect there’s a mystical depth there that will one day be revealed. πŸ˜‰ If your blog is any indication, you are quick-witted, certainly! You haven’t talked a lot about your apparent love for the open sea, though. πŸ˜‰ Thanks for the sympathy about my lost home planet. 😦 It does seem weird to have only eight now, and I’m not sure I’m quite convinced yet that it’s true.

Oh, I do understand the need to learn new things and have different interests, bead! I have a sneaking suspicion you may be master of at least some, though! πŸ˜‰ Good thoughts go with you. πŸ™‚

I’m from Venus:
You love all forms of beauty. You love dressing up and anything luxurious.
A social butterfly, you’re incredibly popular and a great host.
You’re known for your fairness and affection. And as a frind to all.
Careful though! You’re desire to please may make you too willing to conform.
Be yourself. Focus on what matters to you. You’ll be all the more popular for it.

Sorta true. Like you, I should rule Saturn. Sorta true.

Now I’ve got Tony Bennett stuck in my brain singing “If I Ruled the World.” (there are worse things, I guess. :))

I hadn’t seen the Venus one yet, ella. Very much how I perceive you. We can rule Saturn together—it’s a big planet. Now you’ve put Tony in my head, too. That’s a good thing, it’ll get the weekend music out.
