No place in the world has made me consider my place in the universe like Jellyfish Lake. Millions of creatures all drifting seemingly aimlessly, searching for light, for the energy to spawn so generations of their offspring may do the same years later. I take a small breath, sink toward the bottom, watching them in wonder and think are we really so different?

No different... except for vertebrae of course..
 
maybe.... I don't sting :p
 
Once again, great photo! You are very brave to have swam with Jellyfish. 
Translate
 
Yes. We know our purpose for living....and jellyfish? Discuss amongst yourselves...
Nice photo....Silly question considering how much you know already....
 
Swim with jellyfish in Australia and you'll end up dead... =(
 
Isnt every living organism the same?! .. some can process more data .. others not capable .. but the end result is the same .. see to that our species lives on .. only thing that creatures with capacity to process large data is capable of it making life a little better and complicated for themselves as we did :D .. 
 
Looks amazing, It would be nice to see more pictures of your travels?
And yes we are as slaves of our selfish genes as the jellyfish
 
So beautifully written!! I guess we are the same, drifting aimlessly! 
 
Billions of people are out there drifting around the world. We are searching for the light and energy of knowledge and meaning of our existence. +Google and the Internet help us find the light we seek. We just have to ask the right questions.
 
that's why we need something, some ideology, some religion to keep us sane and make us forget our own mortality. That something could be anything.
 
If you stop eating food (eliminate serotonin production) eventually your pineal gland produces a neurotransmitter to take serotonin's place which creates a prolonged zen experience. I assume the jellyfish are in a state of Nirvana.
 
Great shot! It is similiar view as Jellyfish Lake at Kakaban Island Indonesia and swim with a tons of them without being sting. Awsome!
 
I'd say, "No," but if we could know that they spend even an inkling of their time, pondering what we might have in common with them as well, I'd say "Yes." But, so what? he retorts,... Splendor, wonder, and curiosity contribute to beauty, and beauty is good; especially for savage beasts, and old people.

Actually, 99,99% of the population is just like that JellyFish. Barely concious human meat, spreading around every corner of the world in endless search of fornication and eating.

He nailed that one. 
 
+Branko Badrljica

"A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."
-Albert Einstein
 
+CJ Dulberger 

Albert Einstein wasn't exactly ethalon on the subject of universal love and authority.

He didn't have much of a problem leaving his wife when it suited him. Also, he was known to be wrong now and then.
 
At first I thought this was something from outer space.

Utterly amazing shot.

The only difference between us and the jellyfish is that we live under the illusion of 'controlling our own destiny' - they don't.
 
Reminds me of scene from "Finding Nemo", only diff, that was animation and this is real!
 
Yes we are different. The jellyfish are much more transparent.
 
we are a lot like these jellyfish coz if we drift aimlessly, we become easier to factor in by those who are always looking to factor us in

if we try to minimize our opportunity cost, those looking to factor us in naturally have a harder time minimizing theirs

hence the thrust is always towards having us drift aimlessly; it is entirely upto each individual to get his or her act together
 
+Sergey Brin - You take some fantastic shots and they are always so interesting or, at the very least, thought provoking.
 
The difference is that we drift aimlessly toward shiny things :)
 
It's amazing! So jealous?
 
Not much. They're just more faithful to their essence.
 
My grandmother was born on Palau where Jellyfish Lake is. I hope to go there some day soon before its beauty is destroyed by the wealthy who put hotels and golf courses next to or right over natural beauty. When I lived on Guam, my family would visit my mom's relatives on Saipan...there used to be a natural water slide formed out of the rocks that local families would go. It's been gone for about 20+ years now because the land was turned into a golf course. So many memories erased from the land, it's rather shameful.
 
Your place in the universe is in a lake full of jellyfish?

Do you get good WiFi down there?
 
In many ways we are the same, but jellyfish do not possess the ability to completely screw up the planet, as humans do. Their responsibility is to simply reproduce ...
 
Awesome sight...and thought provoking. Have you ever considered that the Internet brings "light" to billions of people per day...and that Google search makes the "search for light" just a little bit easier for all of us just floating around on the Internet?
 
Depends on how you measure difference..
 
thats hilarious  this is how you think once you have 500 million cash in bank and net worth of 20 billion :) ,,,, irony of ironies,, you so humble and good boy!
 
Yes, jellyfish have no central nervous system (including brains). They have sensory organs which allow them to react to stimuli, but they're really nothing more than very simple biological robots.
 
Beautiful, but in all honesty I'd be scared out of my mind surrounded by so many jellyfish 
 
Good question! Most people ignore it. Amazing picture
 
+Sergey Brin
As important as it is to realize how infinitely tiny we are, and our lives infinitely short, it is also important to remember what sets us apart from most of what we have so far found.

Can a supernova, however awesome, contemplate itself?
 
We may be tiny but each & every person has dreams & ambitions. Life's circumstances many times interfere with them but anyone who wants to make a dream come true & is willing to put enough thought, time & energy into it will do so. It may morph into something totally different than what they were originally heading for but it will happen.

Jellyfish only seek the sun's energy to reproduce & perpetuate their species without dreams & ambitions to create something better or more meaningful. So yes we are very different than those beautiful squiggly things because we can appreciate the simplicity of their beauty! 
 
The diffference is that we, as humans, have much more potential to make the world a better place.
 
You should read "Your Inner Fish".  I think it will appeal to you.
 
Thank you for the photos you share with us
Jellyfish are beautiful

home when sees some things that they say is sublime

a small technical issue is that it is helpful to use graph theory and algorithms as Dijkstra or Bellman-Ford and other theory to create an engine recheche able to find the path for a more information on internet.

Thank you in advance
 
Hmm, was this taken with an underwater google glass? :)
 
And a jellyfish is probably looking down at you and wondering just the opposite.
Translate
 
Very cool. Imagine if they were moonjellies.
 
we are part of a single organism, we are the same material as the stars, we are in this ride we called life, and as the jellyfish we do the same every day, the only problem is that our society is difefent thab theirs.
our evolution brought good and bad things.
 
This is SOOOOO beautiful!!!! Our world is truely beautiful :)
 
wow..so beautiful!amazing.
 
wow ... nice ,  it's as pretty as a wonderland. 
 
Amazing! Surreal capture! The Jellyfish with the back light makes it almost seem divine, with those rays behind it. "An Angel from Heaven Jellyfish"....just loved it!
 
Nice, I wish I could Double+ it
 
Hey Sergey... I was in Palau the same time as you and marveled in these amazing creatures...  I stayed in the water quite some time just mesmerized and captivated by the ability of living things to evolve to survive :)  I am sure you know of their story.  I love the legend!
 
I want to see them directly from this point of view someday
 
These are really nice pictures Sergey.  It is really too bad that I can't see them on that awesome Nexus 4 phone.  It is quite embarrassing that the company that tamed the web can't manage a supply chain to produce a device that people want.  what's worse, there is no official word about what the hell's going on!!  Not nice Sergey!!!! Not nice!!!!
 
JELLY FISH LAKE, Sergey friend, does not only and a lake, but a corner of Nature, where she portrays itself own and presents the views of observers' attention to its magnificence. Everything wonderful. But, as "creatures` drift '? These beings are animated, carriers own movements, besides possess altissima sensibilidde. Aside from that, the vision of this lake, the submerged part, and unreal, gorgeous! It remains congratulates him for the beautiful post.
 
Aawesome photo, it's out of this world:-)lol


 
...and so about that Nexus 4 phones we can't get our hands on, I suggest you let Unilever or P&G guys handle distribution scheme. To them that would be a walk in the park. In the meantime, no matter how skeptics downplay its advent, iphone 5 abounds. This is as ironic as ironic gets.
 
They have less stress...for knowledge is power but ignorance is bliss.
 
Your signin for G+ and Google accounts is busted and needs fine tuning and the support page is not providing any relevant information.  Please have support contact me.
 
I have always wanted to swim with these jellies, sweet pic!
 
As we eventually drift off into space, we will genetically modify into some kind of jellyfish, but made of plasma cells. The distributed thinking that occurs within the jelly fish community supports environmental harmony and the symbiotic arrangements transform the sacrificial aspects of environmental partners into a simple utopia for all. Each jellyfish gives back in sacrifice its body that grew through the sacrifice of others.

These great cycles of life are the superstructure of vorticular progress. We have not got to this simplicity of being yet because our societies are motivated by an unbalanced greed that benefits the few, temporarily.
 
I have a website Idea but don't have the funds to create the project,would be great if I could discuss it with you or some of your team members.
 
I see one small yet outstanding difference between us and any other living species we currently know. We seem to be the ones with higher chances of hacking the universe (at the very least, to better understand it's logic), I believe... And the picture is great :-)
 
I'm really sorry, +Sergey Brin about G+ closure!

Vic, Google+ is due to be closed in the end of this year. What are you feeling about it? Why did you hide this fact from us? Hope you don't feel upset, all you've done was awersome and I really enjoyed time spent here.

I find out about that fact from there: https://plus.google.com/u/0/107607569797601764658/posts/E5aH9PSTwud All russian speaking comunity is making backups of G+ data and feel sorrow about that changes.
 
If it is true that we are "drifting seemingly aimlessly, searching for light, for the energy to spawn so generations of their offspring may do the same years later," how can there be objective meaning to life? How can objective value be put on life? How would Google have any basis for talking about peoples' 'rights?' I am grateful that humans have been made in the image of God and that there is more value and purpose for us than what your post seems to imply.
 
Chris if we don't move off the Earth in 5 billion years all trace of humanity will be gone...you can't cope with the fact that there may very well be no explicit meaning to life..biologically your only purpose is to procreate and continue replicating DNA.. Our brains are our own worst enemy because they allow us to contemplate life and in doing so we find ourselves looking for meaning where there may very well be none...
 
You say there 'may very well be no explicit meaning to life.' If there is no 'purpose' beyond replicating your DNA, there IS, without a doubt, no meaning to life. In that case, there is no legitimacy in saying that some things are right and some things are wrong. There is no legitimacy in saying that some things are wonderful and some are not. The list goes on. Everything is subjective and there is no absolute meaning/truth beyond physical laws (assuming that there is no 'purpose' beyond replicating your DNA). Do you truly believe this? Do you live in a way that is consistent with this?
 
I believe that this is most likely the case but I can not rule out 100% the existence of Greater Power either.  But let me put it this way (non-human) animals continue to live and thrive with out needing meaning for their lives.  I can accept that there is no greater meaning to life but it doesn't mean I have to be cruel and un-just..I don't hurt people not because I believe there is a greater power looking at me or there is some greater purpose..I don't hurt people because my "empathy" which has evolved over millions of years makes me feel bad when I do cause harm to others..and maybe some is socially programmed but the key for the survival of humanity is to accept there is no meaning.. and yet choose to improve ourselves and humanity and find meaning in what we can do to help one another through this crazy world we live in...find meaning in each other.
 
How can you believe there is no greater power or purpose and yet say that some things are 'cruel' or 'unjust?' There is no such thing as objective cruelty or justice. The phrase 'the key for the survival of humanity' suggests that it actually matters whether or not humanity survives. Why does it matter? When a person dies, the person is no longer conscious and so it really does not matter what happens to the rest of humanity.
 
Because I have survival instincts built into me thus I want to survive and I want my DNA to continue be it through my children and I love my children so I want them to survive and have a better place whether I am in it or not.  Can you have feelings and not believe in a higher power or purpose? The answer is yes.  I don't like to see other things suffer and it feels good when things fit into our cultures right or wrong belief structure.

Nope mr. Serg ..we're not that different:) DNA makes us the same but at the same time not the same!!!...that same DNA makes us different so we 'can think different' 'b different ' and 'create different' and to boot- bravely create new worlds!!!and WOW !! It gives us programmed evolutionary power to persist in space and time ...Yahoo 2 u 2!!!

Sergey said drifting 'seemingly' aimlessly....the word 'seemingly' changes completely the sense of the statement....some people compared these 'seemingly' aimless motions to those of humans... the truth of the matter is that jellyfish motions, and those of humans, are not aimless or random but follow specific well defined and predictable trajectories. Randomness is a word humans tend to use when don't understand the processes lying just behind our awareness or understanding

My aim is to take google+ ahead of Facebook. Together we will succeed. Let's start a beauty pageant based totally on the web!

This is the first step towards a Miss Google+ beauty pageant. I need lots of partners and experts who can come together to pull it off. Later we will see how to organize it purely on the web!
 
I met a giant jellyfish in Greece which paralized you if you came in touch with it. It was the size of 2 cars. The fisher men went.out with harpoons to kill it as it was by the shore.!!!
 
This is my favorite photo of the jellyfish ~~~ their sole purpose is for reproduction ~~~ no worries about mass destruction of our universe ~~~
 
O K. But thats because they have no brain cells. like you say .jellyfish.!
Man goes crazy and some worry some dont thinking of mankind and the.way

in my experience your company Google Sergey Mikhaylovich Brin  has paid attention to my architectural projects , I suggest to rukovodtstvu and staff of Google business cooperation . by my rough estimates the global market my architecture is 1000000 people . dollar is 100 billion dollars. I suggest to Google the company and its employees is 50% of 416000 dollars on average per employee. I think it was fair to give half 25 % aktsianeram company and the rest spread among employees in proportion to wages. and have to work all I would like that they were all interested . need a powerful global advertising campaign by Google , and Google + . you ask how to protect copyrights for architectural idea ? suggest intimidate potential thieves - on behalf of Google to advertise on the Internet that the company offers everyone ( journalists, police officers , lawyers, ordinary citizens ) look at my house built architecture and report Google . take a thief cost ideas home + court costs + $ 1,000,000 and share it with those who popalam reported the theft .
here are suggestions. you might suggest that it is better if you are interested in the idea . until all you have to give ads worldwide can with your contact data . I want to say that this exponential promotion campaign will give hope to billions of people and attract them to you.
making a purchase over the Internet and Google the person should receive in the mail a certificate with the number of purchases that prints and posts at the gates of the house so that anyone can verify the integrity of the purchase line.
