    It's something we all know, but rarely see with our own eyes.
    Try this : ( you need google earth installed on your computer )

    Open Google Earth. Zoom in to your home town. Or any town.
    Click 'tools' , then 'ruler' and then draw a line 7 km long, or 4.5 miles.

    This is approximately the vertical limit of where humans can survive.

    Now just keep zooming out, and you will see just how much of the Universe we actually use.

    Your post addresses how much of the Universe we use, the title asks how much of the Earth we use.

    An a priori non sequiter!!

    we happen to know now (unlike in Confucius' day) that the earth is not the universe
    unless you want to be the equivalent of the chicken who thinks that his backyard is all there is to the world
