The Salmon of Doubt: Hitchhiking the Galaxy One Last Time - Douglas Adams

This quote was added by psychomentats
The fact that we live at the bottom of a deep gravity well, on the surface of a gas covered planet going around a nuclear fireball 90 million miles away and think this to be normal is obviously some indication of how skewed our perspective tends to be.

It's interesting but I pose this question; We humans call it as we see it, it can't possibly be 'skewed'. Our perspective is just one truth. Another perspective would be still another truth.
It is thought provoking, thank you for sharing this.
