    Scientifically, I have no idea, and I also don't know if that is significant. You know when you travel and you see those kind of places like "you are at the centre of Brazi". SO WHAT? There's nothing special there, just trees! I would say that the centre of Brazil is where things happen, like São Paulo, the biggest city.
    So by this point of view I would say that we are the centre of the universe, everything happens here, sorry Galileo!
    And going even further, since we are human beings filled up with ego, interested in ourselves, in what's good for us individually, I would say that for me, I'm the centre of the universe and from your point of view, you are the centre of the universe. This is called anthropocentrism.
    • Jun 9 2011: I agree with you. I wonder if other species are anthropocentric or if it is a uniquely human idea...?

    2) where most thinking comes together
    3) I

    Apparently the milky way is just off center of what some believe is the true center of the universe.

    Jun 7 2011: i have this crazy idea...

    we know in past that the church have proclaimed that the center of the universe was "earth" until science prove that the sun was the center of the galazy.

    maybe the reason why the church did say the center of everything was on earth because whatevers out there has already have a representation here on earth. people are like planets representing different characters etc. some are like comets bumping other peoples business hehe.

    heres a joke... "the-bed, my-bed can be the center of the universe. bebe" - just a joke ofcourse.

    Jun 6 2011: Questa domanda e una questione universale. The centre is everywhere and the circumference in anywhere. Per non cadere in la opinione vana, e meglio la consulenza di la opera di Niccola Di Cusa "Docta Ignoranza". This question cannot be discussed by simple opinions . Is a foundational subject from the escolastic philosophy. And is not a "democratic" issue.

      Jun 9 2011: Caro Conte di Salaparuta si Mordeforte e so che Roma è il centro dell'Universo. Amo italiano, ma quando ero in Italia la gente mi fissava quando ho parlato loro in italiano. Non sono mai riuscito a fare capire agli italiani la loro lingua.

        Jun 11 2011: Caro Riccardo si puo parlare e capire de tanti modi diverse, non solo tra le lingue. La civilità da qualche parte puo essere la stessa si posiamo "ascoltare" la architettura come la lingua di petra che rimane, lo stesso si mangiamo una bella peperonatta ben fatta a Napoli o a la tua citta. Parlare, sapere, vedere...e capire e lo piu importante. Mordeforte non e on posto, e una linea di sangue, un lignaggio antico che viene dal X secolo, Da vero che noi italiani crediamo che Roma e il centro universale. Storicamente puo essere vero ma soltanto in un senso. Quello che la signora Debra dice qui sotto e vero anche. Non si puo andare al cantro si soltanto si rimane in periferia. Ma dove e il centro?
