Does the cosmos have an influence upon our lives?

“I lie back in an open field and the sky surrounds me. It’s so vast and so far away that my own insignificance becomes palpable. I’m a part of it - tiny, to be sure, but everything is tiny compared to that overwhelming immensity. And when I concentrate in the stars, the planets, and their motions, I have an irresistible sense of machinery, clockwork, elegant precision working on a scale that, however lofty out aspirations, dwarfs and humbles us.” - Carl Sagan, Cosmos
