Indeed because it never stopped doing something since the conception,so i also wonder what he views as "something".

I clearly added "Nothing... at our time scale". Why do people always forget part of what you say when replying or disagreeing or debating?

Anyway at our time scale the universe does absolutely nothing. For something to happen in the universe millions of years must pass. Try to see a star move away from where you see it today. It does move but by the time it does, you'll be so long dead and forgotten, your entire civilization may be too.

So at our scale, the universe does nothing, it just stands there, big and static and that's all. So I decided I don't like the universe and in accordance with the topic of this thread: I will not thank the universe for its laziness (as perceived at our time scale).

No one's ignoring what you said, it was a legitimate question either way. Alright, a star moving takes millions or billions of years, but it only takes a couple minutes for each post to be written in this discussion we're having. What exactly makes one thing more relevant than other - why is our discussion nothing, but the star moving is "something"? I suppose you could say the movement of the stars affects more things, and I guess that'd be true, but... so, what?

What difference would it make if there was a star that could move fast enough for us to notice? If it was too far, you wouldn't even know. If it was too close, we'd all die. And somewhere in between, well, I guess you'd get a weird looking moving star in the night sky. Wow, a life changing experience.

So, in other words, you have an issue of perceiving everything as irrelevant. You have a notion that relevant stuff happens in a different time-scale, but for that different time-scale the movement of the star is just as relevant as the movement of the fan you turn on on hot summer nights. Relevance is a human concept, the universe doesn't care about it. Life isn't about what is or isn't relevant, it's about learning to enjoy stuff regardless of how important it may seem.
