Amazing video. What's even more amazing is that this galactic map is based on only 8,000 nearby galaxies. There are an estimated 100 to 200 billion galaxies in the observable universe.
Awe. Mystery. Vastness.
Who needs religion? Embrace science.

Apparently Guru Nanak (the first Sikh Guru) was aware of this before Science did;
"There are planets, solar systems and galaxies. If one speaks of them, there is no limit, no end. There are worlds upon worlds of His creation. As He commands, so they exist. He watches over all, and contemplating the creation, He rejoices. Nanak says, it is really hard to describe" (Guru Granth Sahib Ji, 8).
Furthermore, "There are billions of regions and planets. There are billions of moons, suns and stars" (Guru Granth Sahib Ji, 275).
The Vedas also seem to share some insights into the multiverse...
Although, possibly through the use of alot of Symbolism, Metaphors, and Personification!
