Perspective… Times Two
The Scale of the Universe 2
What does the universe look like on small scales? On large scales?
Humanity is discovering that the universe is a very different place on every proportion that has been explored. For example, so far as we know, every tiny proton is exactly the same, but every huge galaxy is different. if we were to look at something more familiar to us, a small glass table top to a human is a vast plane of strange smoothness to a dust mite — possibly speckled with cell boulders.
Not all scale lengths are well explored — what happens to the smallest mist droplets you sneeze, for example, is still an ongoing topic of active research — and possibly useful to know to help stop the spread of disease.
Wonderkids Cary and Michael Huang (both now fourteen), who created Scale of the Universe 1 are back with a bigger, better and more descriptive narrative of the scaling/proportions of the universe. With over 100 new pictures to reflect on the proportions of. Click on pictures for further detailed description.
Just what exactly is Ponderingthoughts all about. In a nutshell it is about...life.
Contradictions (through words) are the basis of much of our thought process, and what drives me at many times to continue my quest to see, read, hear and learn as much as I can about this speciies that calls itself human. I love the study of the use of words and how they connect to thought.
It often amazes me how much two opposite sides are alike (in terms of what they ultimately seek).... it is the journey to get there that causes the conflicts/misunderstandings and contradictions.
I say what I mean, think what I say... and understand it is all self-important bullsh@t at the same time. Did I say bullsh@t?! I meant, MY truths... and being I am a human they may often seem like a contradiction.
I invite people to comment, and join the conversation, for my purpose here is also to hear from all of you, and to have others hear you as well. One thing I do ask is if when commenting you could refrain from using profanity. Of course I use it in my life, but dropping the F bomb to prove ones point seems pointless in a real conversation. Respect and thanks.
All thought derives from somewhere (I believe) it is rare anymore that we have a TOTALLY new thought (comments?), so I never actually think "wow, my thoughts are so new, so individual" They are... thoughts. Mashes of all I see, hear, read, study and experience.... They are all of you.
My purpose for this blog is to share my thoughts (based on all things I see, hear, read, do and so forth), and to also post ideas from others greater than me in their thinking (to which I would give the credit)
To those whom may read my randomness, I thank you... you honor me. Thought I probably will not reply to comments posted about what I post, I highly encourage all to add their own ideas to whatever I may post. That in itself is a main purpose of this blog... to keep the conversation going. Like-mindedness is not necessary (for me) to engage in thought and sharing and I always enjoy reading the thoughts of others... agreement or not.
