Saganism_: Carl Sagan warned us about the lessons that come from history. It seems it was also an accurate prediction of our future.
If we don’t learn from our mistakes now we might never have another chance.

quot3bot: "We are a way for the cosmos to know itself." ~ Carl Sagan
_ted_hunt: If “We are a way for the universe to know itself” as Carl Sagan once beautifully surmised, then we could also be the way of eradicating that unique means of knowing from the entirety of the universe. Which would kind of be shame, given its not inevitable.

Imagine what he could accomplish if we could give him 60 seconds in 2021 to end the ignorance we face today.
