    My fascination with the universe was reawakened

    by Neil Degrasse Tyson. I ran across a video of his answer to the question "what is the most astonishing fact about the universe?" His answer was so heartfelt and mind blowing. I sat outside that night and looked at the night sky with fresh eyes. Someone made a video on...

    I am fascinated by the universe.

    Fascinated that across the world, while I laugh, someone else laughs. When I cry, someone else is crying.

    You know that icy moon orbiting Jupiter.

    .. According to NASA, (I could be wrong) but it has oceans 10x deeper than earths with a massive possibility of life.

    I LOOOOVE this topic!

    The fact that we, or anything at all, exists just frazzles my mind. We are a small part of this immense...THING; yet we are a huge part of it. There is nothing unimportant, but nothing is so significant. Everything needs everything, BUT everything can be gone, and the remaining...

    Has anyone else ever watched Horton Hears a Who

    and wondered if that was what was actually going on around us? That there's a much larger life living around us that we are unaware of?

    Beauty At Best.

    The universe is such a mysterious and magical thing. No one can truly understand it because of it's complexity, but why would you want to? I love to just sit with a hot cup of tea, clear all my thoughts, and notice all the beauty around me. The universe is by far the most...

    The Stars My Destination

    I stole the title from a famous SciFi book, all right. Anyhow, when I was younger, about 15 to 20 years of age, I used too look at the sky at night, whenever it was cloudless. All those twinkling stars, the notion of how far they are away, and the vastness of the black between...

    Who couldn't be?  The Universe is

    so far beyond our comprehension, in size, in complexity, in scope, that it begets all the sense of wonder that has occupied humans since they first began to develop self-awareness.  I once was reading the Lotus Sutra, and in it, a measure of time stuck in my mind.  If...

    People tell me to prove

    that emotions and Love exist. It is quite a tragic situation under a pessimistic perspective because they do not understand. Love is the connection that you feel with the universe.

       One day, the earth looked up and said to the moon, “You’re a beautiful sphere, I’m intrigued by your ghostly appeal and your silvery light, but your inconstancy concerns me." Moon batted her eyes and murmured, “You speak like a lover but accuse me unjustly. I may be...

    It is a strange thing to watch a life slip away.

    The stillness just before death, the anticipation, and the flurry of emotions that follows. Maybe it's just me but the essence of the living is not dependent on the sophistication. To watch a fish die affords me nearly the same experience to me as grieving a family member...

    One thing that has always fascinated me is

    that when we look up at the stars in the sky we are "looking into the past". You see the stars light takes millions and millions of years to fully get here, also meaning it takes millions and millions of years for the light to leave. So who knows maybe we are looking at the same...
