No it don't.

Wow.
I thought we lived in a cold cruel world and the Universe is indifferent to each and every one of us so this is nice to know.

Then why is it trying to kill me? It will eventually win, but I have to keep fighting it off.

The universe is utterly indifferent to the fate of its contents.

As the candy hearts poured into the fiery quasar, a wondrous thing happened, why not. They vaporized into a mystical love radiation that spread across the universe, destroying many, many planets, including two gangster planets and a cowboy world. But one planet was exactly the right distance to see the romantic rays but not be destroyed by them: Earth. So all over the world couples stood together in joy. And me, Zoidberg. And no one could have been happier unless it would have also been Valentine's Day. What? It was? Hooray.

If it did love me, why did it give me a gnat's lifespan in a universe billions of years old?

I was expecting some Chris Hadfield Valentine tweets.

Quantum Apostrophe: If it did love me, why did it give me a gnat's lifespan in a universe billions of years old?


Simply a side effect of living so close to so much mass in our planet and the sun. Time dilation, and all.

But to more advanced races, we're to them as gnats are to us. A revelation which is too humbling for some egos.

J. Frank Parnell: Simply a side effect of living so close to so much mass in our planet and the sun. Time dilation, and all.


Voyager is on an escape trajectory and will be in interstellar space at some point, yet its time dilation is very small.  The time dilation from living on Earth and orbiting Sol is not enough to make a meaningful difference for our lifespans.

Our lifespans have much more to do with an equilibrium of two opposing forces: the cost of keeping an existing machine running for an extended period of time, versus the cost of making a new machine.  At some point, a new car will be cheaper to make.  It's also an equilibrium with cancer: a major reason we age is because of an anti-cancer mechanism.

How is that a revelation unless you're already aware of those more advanced races and pointing them out to people?
