Putting The Entire Universe Into Perspective
November 17, 2011 8 Comments
There is nothing above your head except air, gases, stars, asteroids and INFINITE SPACE.
The other nothing above your head is in a non-physical form. There is nothing above the mind within your head. It controls everything about you. There is nothing above it that is ruling you. It is the control center for your whole life.
We as humans like to think of ourselves as being the leaders of this planet simply because we are the most advanced form of life on earth. But what is earth compared to the entire vastness of the universe?
The big question is, if we are so close to nothing, where do we fit in?
I think we are all part of one gigantic system that is far too imaginable for the human mind to possibly comprehend. The human mind can’t comprehend the true universal mechanics behind the whole system.
We still fit in in some way, yet we really can’t truly explain how.
We live on a giant organism, yet as individuals we are part of other billions of organisms that make up the giant organism.
We are billions to the earth, earth is billions to the galaxies, and it just goes on and on forever to the point where we cant even begin to explain what is going on out there. Our universe may very well be part of a realm of other infinite universes. If you haven’t been exposed to ideas such as the multiverse theory, this may be a lot of new crazy information for you to take in.
The fact is you simply cannot know. You cannot know for sure what this life is all about with complete certainty. We are getting closer and closer to figuring it out and that may be the very reason life exists.
It could just be a gradual process towards figuring out and then figuring something else out after that in a new life cycle towards the final answer.
Our minds have infinite potential, not complete knowledge just yet. We keep evolving as a species over millions of years yet each individual gets to be a part of that cycle for on average 62 years. It took our brains from chimpanzee ancestors to double in size in 2,000,000 years. That was actually a short time frame from previous periods of doubling.
This is also an idea many have trouble figuring out why it happened. One theory suggests our monkey ancestors ate psychedelic mushrooms when they ventured out of the rainforests, and that contributed to the rapid growth in brain size.
This theory was proposed by a scientist named Terence McKenna and it is called The Stoned Ape Theory. His beliefs along with other theories still have not fully explained the rapid evolution of chimpanzees and it may never be known.
I would like to leave you with a video that compares the relevant size of stars and planets in our solar system to the other stars in and outside of our own galaxy.
After watching, it will leave you thinking how we could be so impossibly small in comparison to the vast universe. It is certainly an interesting view.
