If humanity is only a momentary speck within an indifferent universe, then why the fuck does the entire universe want a piece?
>>
Your mom is nothing but a momentary speck within an indifferent universe!

He's not wrong that it's true, he's just wrong that that's a bad thing.

Pretty much accurate depending on the scale you're looking at.
The proper response is
>and?

What the fuck are humans meant to do with that information? We're doing the best we can.
>>
Humanity is clearly extremely special and massively significant within reality, regardless of how much other life exists. The fact that we exist in this place surrounded by a near endless expanse of barren void for billions of miles suggests this.

The universe doesn't exist without humanity. Until other life is found, we're only ones around to perceive it.
>>
>>99918269
If humans are insignificant, then why do all the alien bitches go for that human dick?
>>
>>99918376
Okay, but in context this is coming from a dude who has seen other planes of reality with other forms of life and made a bargain with one of them, talking to a guy who watched aliens invade New York City like a year earlier.
>>
>>99918269
He's not wrong, but it doesn't matter that he's right. Our moment is all we have, there's no reason in fucking it up simply because there's more to the universe than us.

I can't, because he's objectively correct.

spooky stuff
>>
>>99918269
he's extremely wrong in his own story. just looking at marvel 616, humans are constantly the center of cosmic and universal affairs. for every snooty fuck like eternity or galactus who thinks they're above it all, you have a nate grey or franklin richards who are very human and very earth-based.

even in the mcu where do the most powerful weapons and warriors in the universe end up? earth

and in real life? i mean given that we seem to be the only sufficiently advanced race in the universe i'm pretty sure the whole 'BAWWW, humanity's lifespan would be a blink compared to the total length of existence, BAWWWW' thing is rendered pretty moot.

eat a dick, kaecilius

>>99918413
Yeah fair enough. So then, what does it matter if we are insignificant?
>>
>>99918461
What meme? How much time was supposed to have passed between Avengers 1 and Doctor Strange?
>>
>>99918269
every human is a fundamental part of the universe
a change to one fundamentally changes the universe in regards to a part of the universe being changed
if a human is not indifferent, the universe cannot be entirely indifferent

Humanity is the universe, nothing has meaning without humanity.

Anon, were you rewatching Doctor Strange today too?

we're sitting on resources and can be turned into disposable canon fodder
>>
>>99918269
Humanity will play a crucial role in saving the very universe itself when humans challenge the threat of Thanos.

So the universe would not exist post infinity war if not for humans to some capacity.

The universe as a whole can't be too indifferent to us if we literally have some measure in its very survival.

At 28-years-old, I've come to accept that mortality is a blessing, not a curse. It promises that no matter what happens, it won't last forever. People throw around the terms immortality, eternity and forever like spit, but really, who can truly imagine "forever"? We think waiting at a line in the bank takes Forever; being stuck in the traffic, we call Eternity; to a fly, we humans are Immortals.

Anyone that says they want to live forever has no idea what Forever means. Hell, a third of 2018 is almost over. Time is a fleeting mistress. Mutatis mutandis, what can you do a million years from now?
>>
>>99919375
wow, a whole 28 years? treat us to your wisdom, oh great one.

you're a dumb kid. when you're in your 50s and half your family is dead, you won't be singing the same tune.
>>
>>99918269
As a magic user he should know that all things are connected and one, nothing living is meaningless. Humans, gods, and insects are the same.
>>
>>99919899
>28 years is a meaningless amount of time
>but in another 22 years you know everything and are a wise elder
Fuck off with your superiority complex.
>>
>>99919270
Don't forget that two humans saved the entire multiverse from collapsing with battleworld, and two more humans with one of the previous ones rebuilt the whole thing.
>>
>>99919899
Why would he?

If half is family is dead by the time he reaches 50, won't the "mortality is blessing not a curse" mentality ring even truer?

As your loved ones die off, and leave you more and more alone, tell me that the end of your own life won't be something you look forward to
>>
>>99919899
If your 50 you're probably still suffering mild lead poisoning from the years when they still used lead in gasoline to prevent knocking.
I dont blame you for being angry, you're partially brain damaged and want some sorta advantage over the youth who could probably beat you in a fight anyway
>>
>>99920045
I hope not. My grandpa passed recently and I was suddenly shook with worry over my grandma. I really hope shes not looking forward to the end, I call her every weekend to make sure she's holding up okay because I don't think the family would be ok without both of them.

>Prove him wrong.
He's not. But now, what?
>>
>>99919138
You're god damn right.
>>
>>99920045
My problem with mortality isn't death itself, it's the slow process of deterioration that comes with age.
I love running. But at some point I won't even be able to jog anymore.

>>"Humanity is nothing but a momentary speck within an indifferent universe."
>Prove him wrong.
Humanity in his world is literally blessed by TOAO. Individual humans can die, but the Marvel Multiverse metaphorically has Earth as its centre, and Humanity at the centre of Earth.

He was literally wrong, because if he actually know the nature of the universe he was in, he would have figured out that their Creator bends over backwards for humans. Doctor Strange in the comics know this, and the MCU Strange will one day see it too.
>>
>>99918269
If that was true, why not just wait humans out?

>momentary speck
Wrong. Humanity has existed for many, many lifetimes.
>indifferent universe
Universe doesn't have a perspective. It's not a sentient entity. It can be neither different nor indifferent.
Why warp your mind to consider things from an imagined fictional perspective, when you already have a natural perspective, which is actually relevant to you?
>>
>>99918310
no u
>>
>>99918304
they don't. just other specks occasionally do. Most dont know we exist.

we just have the movies about the battles that happen on earth.
>>
>>99918337
as does an ant in a desert
>>
>>99918269
I don't have to. Humanity isn't just a momentary speck. Humanity is the only momentary speck with agency. In an infinite, indifferent universe full of pointless specks that float around without purpose, that's a big deal.
>>
>>99918269
One hundred trillion years is not momentary. Humanity can exist until the last star dies, and beyond.
>>
>>99922411
>Humanity is the only momentary speck with agency.
Not in the MCU.

how many times has humanity saved the universe by now in just the 616?
>>
>>99918269
This is just one of those "It doesn't matter, either just deal with the fact that you don't matter or kill yourself if you can't." things.
>>
>>99918269
And living forever in a perpetual state of chaos with no sense of context for your existence is better?
>>
>>99918269
Well, guess it's less tryhard than "there is no morality, only morale".
I like Hannibal, but that line was just awful
>>
>>99918269

That doesn't mean you have to be a dick about it, man.
>>
>>99918592
Avengers 1 is set about a year after IM1, so like 2009. Doctor Strange is set the year it came out.

The phonecall about the patient injured in an exosuit is in fact neither a reference to Rhodey in Civil War nor to Hammer's test pilot in IM2.
