One of the things that fascinated me was the idea of the Universe. Imagine the Earth and other planets, then there is solar systems.
When you go farther you find many celestial bodies making up galaxies. And when trillion or so galaxies meet they form the Universe. But what is the end of the Universe, you can’t visualise it.
For example, if you think the Universe goes on forever then you brain will trigger you that given enough time, it will come to an end. But if there is an end, what is beyond that. There has to be something and thus it has to be never ending.
The concept of infinity – going on forever is crazy and true.
Let’s see how the formation of everything took place. For the majority of the time, it was thought that molecules were the smallest thing you were made up. But then molecules broke into atoms.
So atoms became the unbreakable smallest part from which you were made. But then there are protons, neutrons and electrons.
And now you have reached to the bottom of the question – but then the sub atomic particles were discovered. Turns out there are more elements inside an atom.
Now are you sure you can’t go further. Isn’t it a matter of time that something even smaller and amazing is discovered. What’s the end or is there an end. And if there’s an end, what’s beyond.
Somehow the Universe the biggest thing and atom the smallest thing makes you go crazy because you can’t find their end.
And maybe that’s the point. Sometimes you need to take what you know and use it to your best advantage. Unless of course what you know changes when something new is discovered.
Until then, stay curious, think and apply these principles to culture around you. Use what you know to change it for better and then know some more.
