When I was a kid playing with my dolls, I recall thinking "perhaps we are just dolls for some other huge, more powerful beings"...

Is Earth at the centre of the Universe?  And, if so, what does that mean about our world...?

You are wrong. Nobody knows what is in the center of the universe because it is infinite. Another thing is that the universe is composed of small worlds. One of which is our solar system, but in the center not the earth and the sun.

People are the center of their own universe. Suggesting a universe other than your personal universe, is drawing a person out of himself.

Are you saying us BRITS are not at the centre of the universe?..
If the world is the centre of the universe then we British are the centre of the whole universe ..

Earth is just a rock in a universe full of like rocks. Some are inhabitable and likely inhabited by something or maybe someone. While most are just rocks. So yeah, we're not that important at all. I know some of us like to feel that way but that's just a lie to make yourself feel better. Like getting high or drunk. Feels good .. still a lie..  But yeah, just one rock among many.

So instead of feeling special maybe feel like you're part of something bigger than you.  Tongue

From Wikipedia:
Global Positioning System (GPS) receivers show that the marking strip for the prime meridian at Greenwich is not exactly at zero degrees, zero minutes, and zero seconds but at approximately 5.3 seconds of arc to the west of the meridian (meaning that the meridian appears to be 102 metres east of this line).

Even the Great Pyramid is aligned due North more accurately.

So does that mean if we spun a rock the same speed as the earth and the same distance from a sun does that mean we can make another EARTH?..

And if not have you tried it?.

Because if we can i could imagine we British would be at the centre of that world too.. Grin

We are not the center of the universe... The universe is infinite with so many planet and galaxies that we cant count them and i dont believe there is a center for it.

And on a serious note Does you think BITCOIN will blow up and people will bail to save money?..

Going up far to fast for me..
Some people will pay they always do..JUST WHO WILL IT BE..

Wont be me anyways..
Some people are going to pay dearly soon..
I seen some crypto going through the roof and i know they are scams and still they went up so much..

Very scary times..

How do people buy them for cash?..way to much..
Ok if been payed by BITCOIN for a bit of free time work..

BUT buying them at that price NO CHANCE..

I still got some but just don't know what to do bail or stay the ride..
Because if they drop i can buy well more back..

I just feel a bubble will pop soon..Could be wrong and they carry on to 10k for 1 btc..

Just feel like we are getting set up for the big STING..

On the latest news, even the UK probably do not care what's happening and how it happens. The country has so many problems. But the infinity of the universe implies the absence of a center.

The earth is the last place in the universe if you are looking at this correctly. Simply because it is the only and last place we have had the privilege and experience to stand upon.
