if we were to think about Existence as a whole, as Everything that ever did, is and will be (every possible information or set of informations),
then its source (seed) is clear;
We start from a notion of non-existence, something that does not exist: never did, is or will. So that which does not exist can not have any description.
That means that non-existence is an empty field, it nullifies its self in its inception. Conclusion; a non-existence does not Exist.
That leaves us with an Infinite vast "Everything". I think that this is what this our Existence actually is. What we experience is part of "Everything that there is".
But now we can ask; Can existence "be" without "knowing" its self, without knowing that it exists. I think that any state of any information requires
a "Councious Agent" to acknowledge such a state, otherwise, you end up with paradox.
So in turn that "Everything that there is" (let's call it Existence for simplification need) is one-half of the seed for the whole, the whole needs
a Consciousness in order to actualize itself.
This what is described here I believe to be; a sole foundation for this or any possible Universe there is, for everything.
I think that From that seed The Cosmic Awareness fractalizes itself into smaller awarenesses, And observes a part
of its self rather than the whole. This fractalization is what we call dimensionality. So the Source Awareness
experiences itself as every possible version of its self. Because it is it's function.
Like some ultimate cosmic game of ego, of hide and seek.
Why I chose my major

I'm really excited /sci/. I'm a near highschool graduate (ending half of senior year) and recently the talk of debt and and college choice and scholarships are freaking me out. I've been forgetting why I want to go to college. But the recent announcement about Trappist 1 made me remember why I'm doing what I'm doing. I'm going in Astrophysics, and was recently accepted into RIT's Physics program and plan to go to grad school their for Astrophysics. The excitement and passion I felt when reading about Trappist 1 woke me up as to why I'm doing this, and it makes all the work and stress and debt worth it, if I could just be part of the group of people who find these planets and help Colonize and explore. Nothing really important ITT, I just remembered why I chose to pursue science

Yeah but it's still exciting, the simple miniscule possibility of another habitable world is too exciting to be that cynical about it

Will we go back to the moon next year? And what kind of value does that even have for science?
Space exploration done by humans is just a waste of money and resources. Automated probes would be way better. Given the fact that we will never be able to settle on other planets.
> Now, however, the moon is making headlines again. On Wednesday, NASA's acting administrator Robert Lightfoot circulated a memo to employees hinting at the possibility of flying astronauts aboard the space agency's new heavy-lift rocket and crew vehicle as early as 2018. What's more, the mission would not just be to low-Earth orbit, but to lunar orbit — coming during the 50th anniversary year of the Apollo 8 mission, when astronauts first achieved that singular exploratory feat.
> As TIME reported last month, President Trump has signaled his interest in a robust manned space program, and moon advocates like Newt Gingrich have his ear.
