It is that time of the year again, with the infinite number of top 10 lists that are posted all over the Internet and here are some Top Picture lists which are absolutely awesome..

Insignificance

The Hubble Ultra Deep Field Image has been dubbed as the most important image ever taken by man and it is simply breathtaking. It actually makes me cry with awe, every single time I look at it.

Check out the Full Res Version. It’s a 4 MB image but let me tell you it’s worth every byte. Just right click, save and view in Full Screen.

It is an amazing feeling when you realise how small we are. When you think about it, we are the very definition of insignificance. It’s amazing that consciousness gives you the feeling of being important and significant. What a wonderful illusion reality is, amazingly confusing yet absolutely clear.

All is nothing.
All is free.
