    Look around you. Where are you? Where is this place you are occupying? Somewhere in a room, maybe in a city on a continent on a planet orbiting a star in a galaxy among billions. But… where is all of that? While this may feel like a daft question, it turns out that the concept of an absolute position is something humans made up.

    In a nutshell, the universe is a big bag of space that has things in it. If someone removed all these things, the stars and planets and black holes and dust, there would just be empty space left. In empty space, the concept of having a position loses all meaning. Empty space is uniform, the same everywhere.

Maybe the best visualization of this topic ever. Animation team is insane.

Kurzgesagt is honestly one of the precious gems formed on the internet, so much effort put into amazing animation, sounds, research, and much more. Thank you guys for you what do.

I love how Kurzgesagt has started finishing their videos with a really positive message that makes you feel better about the 5 minutes of existential horror you’ve just experienced

Kurzgesagt, one subject that I think needs a lot of clearing up and explanation is entropy.

I've blown a few minds by walking friends through the thought experiment of imagining an empty universe, without any frame of reference, then imagining a single object in that space without any way of comparing it's attributes to anything else. It's a good way of beginning to explain relativity.

Absolutely love the progression of the animation style. I've been following this channel since it's first year and I can safely say I'm always ever more in love with each new upload

Cheers to Kurzgesagt! Awesome video, animations were cool as always, and I loved the idea of this video. The fact that you take in all factors of motion and use frames of reference are beginning to touch the General Theory of Relativity. It makes us respect the forces of the universe, and we can't help but feel helpless in this field. Thank you!!

I always think that the whole universe on a macroscopic level might be, like, one particle of a bigger being, or one cell of an organism, or one particle of a bigger universe, where simple actions take billions of years from our perspective. Which explains why the inhabitants of that bigger universe will never understand every little component of that universe (since our microscopic world would be ultra-microscopic to them, and the minimum “resolution” they can see is one particle which is the size of our universe.)

I remember asking my Science teacher what makes North North and South South and it blew me away when they said direction and orientation is arbitrary. You never really think about it, but you can flip a map, a globe, or the entire solar system and it would still be correct. I could imagine how disorienting it would be moving in space with no concept of the 3 axes

I’ve been watching this channel for the longest time. Every video is simply so beautiful. The patience in the narrator’s voice, the exquisite animation, and the way of explanation all together makes every video perfect. Hands down the best channel on the entirety of YouTube.
