The Black Sea at Night by Ivan Aivazovsky
Instead of just looking up into the sky, you’re actually gazing down into the infinite cosmic abyss, with only gravity holding you onto the surface of the earth.
i was not prepared for that
Everyone who terrifies you is sixty-five percent water.
And everyone you love is made of stardust, and I know sometimes
you cannot even breathe deeply, and
the night sky is no home, and
you have cried yourself to sleep enough times
that you are down to your last two percent, but
nothing is infinite,
not even loss.
You are made of the sea and the stars, and one day
you are going to find yourself again.
That’s actually a theory incorporated into M-theory (string theory)
Sorry, I just used the word theory three times.
Basically, there is a possibility, if string theory is correct and atoms are actually made up of tiny strings vibrating in 10 dimensions, we could have infinite parallel universes inside each and every quark contained in our body. We’re huge to them, and tiny to the universe WE are contained in.
How bout that? There could be billions upon trillions of creatures, things, worlds, inside each atom inside us. Infinite universes in one quark.
Mia your geek is showing.
This is why I study physics.
…whoah. brb, contemplating this forever.
So does that mean that when we die all those billions of universes and creatures die within us?
Considering how amazing our minds and intellectual abilities are, I believe that this theory is true. We all have millions of thoughts and we do have worlds in our minds created by our imagination.
Feels good to know that I’m not the only one who’s contemplated this. I mean, even the structure of an atom is similar to that of a galaxy.
Just imagine: every time a new neural network is created, or breaks off and is forgotten, planets and stars could be being born, or dying.
It feels surreal when you think about it, but when you consider string theory, it does make sense.
It also shows that we are not alone in the universe. There is an interconnectedness that we all possess within our very atoms. Our physical energy is in constant contact with every object we touch, and thus, we leave a mark on where we’ve been and it leaves a mark on us.
Isn’t that wonderful.
