The Cosmic Perspective

by BIG THINK EDITORS
THE BIG IDEA FOR SATURDAY, MAY 25, 2013

Science can be depressing. The more we learn about ourselves and our relationship to the universe, the smaller we get. And yet, if we feel depressed, Neil deGrasse Tyson argues in today's lesson, that is the product of an unhealthy ego.

Having a cosmic perspective should strengthen and empower you, Tyson says. Even as you feel smaller, you are simultaneously bigger as well. So how can this perspective be applied to your life? In his Mentor workshop, Tyson teaches us how to recognize and seize big opportunities, set lofty goals that keep you challenged and growing and much more.
