Saw this, had to share.

Identifying and defining where we are in the universe and a really pretty map of how all the galaxies are moving around.

SO MUCH UNIVERSE

That was really cool, and beautiful. It always weirds me out when universe things resemble neural networks, which the image at like 0:53 kind of really does. The repetition of shapes in unrelated systems bound by the same laws of physics is both intuitive and counterintuitive, but it is kind of vertigo-inducing to think about this phenomenon over a difference in scale as vast as this.
