The Known Universe And Other Cosmic Visualizations To Ponder

Ponder The Known Universe, a short film by the American Natural History Museum. Next – allow Hubble to hijack senses. Follow with reverence demanded by solar symphonies. Finally – drift softly back to Earth wrapped in the arms of Aurora.

  1. Whenever I see such images, I’m in awe at the infinite beauty out there. And then invariably I’m aghast at human arrogance to think anything we do actually matters, when it comes to it. Even if we blow up our planet, it wouldn’t even show up as a pixel blip.

    • As far back as I remember, most certainly before I understood the meaning of arrogance – I gazed at the stars with wonder. Wonder born of desire to embrace the cosmos beyond restrictive reverence for God. Sigh πŸ™‚

      • Funny how people looking at the same thing can have very different takes. You call it restrictive reverence, I see the unlimited creativity and majesty of God. But that’s ok β€” we’re friends anyway. πŸ™‚

      • The world would be a better place if more people realized harmony resides in matters separate from faith or lack thereof. How we got here matters less than what we do with our lives. I value your friendship for acceptance of my wonder, tempered patience to respectfully call bullshit when I ruffle your feathers and thoughtful insight penned without bias or judgement of my Godless existence.Big hug πŸ™‚
