I Am Amazed At the Universe

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 4,935 People

    Watching TV documentaries about the Big Bang

    and hand growth, evolution of the universe, is great, a great way to learn much of the theories expounded about how things came about. Whether you believe mans ideas, or read spiritual tomes like the holy bible is a personal choice thing, still it is fascinating.

    What Time Is It There?

          Looking into the cosmos and seeing all the galaxies with myriad stars is awesome enough but when I recall the light from some of them has been travelling thousands and thousands of years it's even more mystifying because they may not even exist now...

    Do You Ever.....

    ....just stare up at the sky on a clear night. It's amazing just to see all the stars and wonder what is truly up there. It makes me realize how we are just a speck of dust and not all that important when it comes to the universe. I could just stare for hours and let my mind...

    when you learn of things like the cosmic alignment of the Sun, Mars, and the Earth.

    I love just looking up at the sky on a starry

    Beauty In Chaos

    I like to think of myself as a fan of chaos. The funny thing about chaos is that if you pull back the scope, you're looking at order, no matter how chaotic. Grains of sand on a beach, stars splashed across a night sky, the mere fact of temporal existence, is all an exercise in...

    Love. It is best when inexplicable.

    Words are a human invention. Love is not. When you love someone so much that you cannot think of a single word to describe what you feel...that is truth. That is beautiful.

    The Universe Is Fine Tuned To Permit Humans To Exist Somewhere In It.

    The laws of physics are "fine tuned" to permit intelligent life to exist somewhere in the universe. We have no idea why this is, and I say that that is the greatest unsolved scientific problem. The universe around us began 13.7 billion years ago; we call this beginning the Big...
