But... isn't having this ordered perception of the cosmos a kind of
"comfort"? And again, I think that the whole reason why people are so
intrigued in describing the cosmos is fueled by the fear of death.
Understanding the world around you is a simple survival technique that we
picked up after millions of years of development as a species. By
understanding death, we may be able to cheat our ultimate and unrewarding
fate of "non-existence".
