about the...Size of IT
All of science
is just another kind of story and this is a great example of a widely
known and accepted 'hard science' story. The story of who we are
in relation to all that is bigger and smaller. I believe the powers
of ten portrays the, ah, 'that's about the size of IT' train of
thought in a classic presentation. We travel way bigger, then we
travel way smaller. It's all very cut and dried and meant to stretch
our perception of bounds, but where does it leave us at the end
of this story. The cut and dry presentation promotes separateness,
a feeling of being small, inconsequential, and disconnected. Where
is the love? Where is the juice? (We LIKE juicy)
Powers of Ten
This one tells the same story only differently. Still science, this
telling has more juice, more interest.
What will we miss?
Here are some other ways of looking at the same information/facts/reality.
These spin the story from a perspective of connectivity. We are
all connected. We are all 'cut from the same cloth'.
with ancient philosophy - the Hermetic principle of Correspondence:
The Principle of Correspondence, "as above, so below,"
means that one can infer the nature of distant realms from local
experience. The dynamics of cells are parallel to the dynamics of
galaxies. Just as a small laboratory or computer program can simulate
the behavior of stars billions of light years away, the consciousness
of an individual being can confer with the Ultimate Consciousness
that existed when there was only the word. This principle ensures,
for example, that humans need not dread exposure to the idea of,
say, extraterrestrials; they are derived from the same universal
Now we can take a big leap of faith, to a more advanced perception
of the size of 'space'.
- the illusion of separateness
That's About the Size
