The Universe is so Incomprehensably Large and our Planet so very Small

leave a comment »

Some thoughts I had while taking a shower:

The universe is incomprehensibly large and not only our geographical distances on earth have become smaller, but our whole planet, Earth, has become smaller in comparison.  With our human capacity for measurement and for science and technology,  the enhancement of human activity has sky-rocketed. Our human capacity for activity has magnified many times over on our small planet, because of the expansion of industry with products  placed into overdrive by science and technology for the sake of profit. Thus we could well be responsible for the drastic rate of increase in climate change on our planet with its delicate atmosphere. We now know that our whole planet has become a Noah’s ark – floating in space as it circles around the sun, upon which we have to save the animals, as well as ourselves from extinction.
