You are almost impossible
What we understand about our universe is only the tip of the cosmic iceberg. Yet, we make new discoveries in space everyday – humbling discoveries that dwarf our lives, our jobs, and our complaints.

Fractals, the self-similar mathematic pattern that our universe is built according to, can be zoomed in or out infinitely. The branches that filter the sunshine as it hits our faces in a warm summer afternoon have been created with exactly the same blueprint as the veins and blood vessels that run through our entire bodies.
Dr. Ali Binazir, author of "The Tao of Dating" and "Should I go to medical school?" uses beautiful statistics to help us understand just how tiny the odds are for us even existing, helping us see that us being alive right now, is already the miracle of all miracles.
So go on, celebrate!
