Messages for the future! Or from the past

So we’ve featured VSauce twice before. And you have to admit, the videos are very entertaining and enlightening. The one I have for you today made me feel rather strange. Small. Insignificant. But in the good way. This video is called Messages For The Future. My favorite part is toward the end there. But lets not get ahead of our selves. Enjoy and Ill catch you after the jump

 

 

So what do you think? Is this insane or what? And I would love to hear what you guys and gals would send as a message into space if the world was about to end. What would you do with the time left before the end?

So my favorite part of the video? I have to say its the Library of Babel. The idea that an infinite library, containing an infinite number of books that contain everything that ever was, is and will be is scary. And also incredibly interesting. I imagine if I were to find this library I would spend quite a lot of time in searching for my life. And as in the original story I would probably lose my self inside. Not physically but mentally. But if the website is a taste of what the library would possibly look like it will be nearly impossible with even an unlimited amount of time to find anything making sense about my self. As a person who dreams about having a room library someday this is like crack. I’ve spent more time than I am willing to admit searching random hexagons, random books, random  pages for text that makes sense. And I’ve stumbled onto some randomly generated texts, single words and such.

This however is the best example – a comment left on the video you just watched. Hex would be the room in the library. Since its infinite the address of this room would be long. Then you have your wall, shelf and book to choose from. And at the end a page. If you didnt get how to input this data in the library of babel:

1- https://libraryofbabel.info

2- Browse

3- copy and input Hex Name

4- Select Wall

5- Select shelf

6- Select volume

7- Select page

8- Pick up your jaw from the floor.

Just think – this was generated randomly. So theoretically you can find a story from your own childhood in there by chance.
