"We Are the Universe's Way of Thinking of Itself"

So many people have repeated this, is so many variations, that I have no idea who first said it.  The idea goes back millenia, in many cultures, Buddhist, Hebrew, Chinese.  It's interesting that modern science finds it to be essentially true.

so true, just think, we're all one and the same thing! makes me so happy thinking these things.

So true. :-)

Depends. If it's the bit about being the universe's way of thinking of itself, yes. If it's the hot dog bit, it just makes you hungry. :-)

Q. What did the Zen master say to the hot dog vendor?<br />

A. Make me one with everything.
