How small am I?
You might think your problems and difficulties are huge, and that your trials and tribulations are beyond arduous. But really, you are very small in this universe, even though you think you're pretty big.
Let's start with the continent you're on.
If you live in North America, you're only one person among 528.7 million.
If you live in South America, you're only one person among 387.5 million
If you live in Europe, you're only one person among 742.5 million
If you live in Asia you're only one person among 4.427 billion!
If you live in Australia, you're only one person among 23.13 million
If you live in Africa you're only one person among 1.111 billion
Wherever you live, you're pretty small in comparision to the millions of people around you. And think about it, you are one individual in the midst of SEVEN BILLION other people. That makes you feel pretty small, huh? Your percentage on Earth is around 0.00000000142857.
But that's only on planet Earth. There are 7 other planets in this solar system, majority of which are larger than Earth. And even that's nothing in comparision to the sun. All the planets and the sun are very small in our galaxy, the milky way, though. And the Milky Way is completely miniscule in the seemingly infinite universe.
If that's too complicated, here's a simpler explanation.
Your mass is probably between 20 to 80 kilograms, but usually not above 100kg.
The mass of the universe, on the other hand, is estimated to be 1000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 kilograms (it has 54 zeroes), and that's only as far as we know.
Conclusion? We are a very small part of this universe.
