There’s No Ground

You might be under the impression that you are completely grounded at the moment.

You might also be under the impression that you aren’t in motion at this very moment.

On both accounts, you would be completely wrong.

Above You Goes on FOREVER

You are on the ground of the earth due to earth’s gravitational force, but what ground is the earth on?

The earth is not stationary on the ground of some universal plane. Right now as you read this, you are hurling through the universe at 67,000 miles an hour around a giant nuclear explosion (the sun) and rotating at the same time at a speed just over 1000 miles an hour.


Due to the relative size of the earth compared to us as individuals, these insane levels of speed are not even close to being perceived by us as we go about our daily lives.

To think just a few hundred years ago we thought the earth was flat and the sun was just a few miles away shows how far along we have come in our cosmic understanding. We now understand that the universe has no ground. It is forever expanding in all directions and it isn’t stopping.

There are no boundaries, and no edges to the whole universal picture. We have grown accustomed to being comfortable in our little organic spaceship as all this universal chaos is happening right outside our windows.

What I find amazing is how we have discovered all this information through our very own innovation. From the sticks and stone days of the cavemen, we have evolved our technology so far that we have seen the afterglow of the big bang and determined that a majority of the universe is made out of dark matter.

What could possibly be next?

Is there any ground to human innovation?

Is there any limit to what we can discover?

Will we eventually find the answer to all creation?


There are over 10,000 scientists right now working on a project that will hopefully crack all understanding of physics and reveal the hypothesized Higgs boson, better known as the “God Particle”.

If we do in fact discover this particle and redefine all scientific understanding, do you honestly think we are going to stop exploring and discovering?

I believe there will never be an end to human innovation and creativity as long as we are a race.

Maybe that is our purpose as a race.

No other species on this planet has any clue what we are doing and they go about their business having no idea that they too are part of this ship that is hurling through the vast infinite universe.

I think our purpose is to constantly stretch the limits of understanding.

If you think we have come a long way in the last few hundred years, where are we going to be in the next few hundred years?

It will most likely be completely beyond our comprehension just as the internet would be to a caveman.

Assuming we don’t exterminate our own race at some point down the line, we are going to keep evolving and it is not going to stop.

We are not stationary or moving backwards with our innovation and technology.

The same way the earth is not grounded, our creativity and thirst for innovation keeps moving at an extremely fast pace.

Everything keeps moving no matter how grounded it may appear to be. It keeps moving forward towards an eventual outcome which is far beyond our current reason.

Within the billions and billions of galaxies within the known universe, maybe someone or something has the answer and we are just playing catch up.

If we are just slightly genetically different than chimpanzees, who is to say there isn’t a species that is slightly more genetically advanced than us and then more and more species that are slightly genetically more advanced then them. The level of possibility has no ground, no end to its complexity.

    I distrust immensely scientific ‘facts’ and thereby science. I’ve come to the conclusion that science is a blundering current-fashion-in-thought, nothing more.
    On the one hand we have religious people bleating that ‘God’ created the heavens and the Earth out of nothing; on the other hand (and I read this again just a few days ago in a book) “all those hundreds of billions of galaxies and trillions of suns were occupying a volume smaller than an atom” (wee bit of paraphrasing there).
    Then that primordial atom suddenly went POP and we have an instant universe … to my mind it takes as much faith to believe either way, God or Pop.

    I read somewhere that in the primordial atom all was timeless (for infinity) before the pop—so the question I still have never had answered: what could possibly change in a timeless?

      Either way you look at it, it is all what certain people want to believe. No belief is necessarily the absolute truth for we will never determine that in this temporary lifetime. Belief is a powerful thing and it can guide people in the right or wrong direction depending on how they approach life. Science and religion are both great innovations but still both stem from human creation. We basically can believe whatever we want, and that is what gives us our direction in life.

        Mystery within mystery; the door to all marvels. The mysteries of today will eventually be proven. There is a truth to everything. Pertaining to the God-or-Pop theory I would have to say that in my opinion “God” is the source of all that ever was and all that ever will be…if that source is conscious or not I do not know….but there IS a source. So if our universe did come from a primordial atom, where did that atom come from? God does not have to be a man in the clouds. What if The Source is something that we as humans cannot comprehend with our brain?

        • Argus says:

          Indeed … you said: “So if our universe did come from a primordial atom, where did that atom come from?”

          Obviously God made it … okaaaaay … but who made God?

          Easy answer: a bigger, better, Goddier God.

          So who made Him? Oops … it never ends, does it?

    Have you ever question why a silverfish or spider start running when you want to kill them? Do you think they know ?

    • DIESEL says:

      I think instinctively they do. yes. For every species on this planet, survival is of utmost importance. There have actually been studies done on plants where they were shown to emit a biological response when someone produces the intent to harm them. I think this shows how we all have a connection on this planet in some way we can’t fathom even with our own massive brainpower. Plants produce this response because they can actually “feel” and get a vibe of their environment. They might not necessarily know and understand why they are being threatened but by producing a response, they have awareness and awareness is the root of all life, big or small, plant or insect.
