(Warning philosophical musings being jotted down below – you don’t have to read them, and definitely don’t need to believe them – however, they are MY philosophical musing about this strip for someone who might enjoy them, NOT for debate or ridicule – however feel free to express yourself as ignorantly or wisely as you feel I have):
Many years ago close to the top of a mountain, around three in the morning, I lay outside my tent on my sleeping bag and stared at the stars. No man-made lights or smog products of man were visible anywhere to diminish the overwhelming glow of the stars. The milky way flowed through the sky and there were so many stars in one tiny spot I watched for a while that it looked like one huge solid star. As time flowed over me I was made very aware that man can not know or even comprehend a percentage of a percentage of creation. Yes, I said creation. The mathematical phenomenon of the sight and intricacies of what I was seeing could not and can not just happen. Only the small mind of man could ever think it could. I was not drunk, high or fevered. Simply in awe of the sight. Interestingly I did not feel insignificant, but I did feel ‘not so smart’ and realized how little I and all of mankind really know compared to what we think we know and comprehend. The inflated ego that we, mankind, manifest on a daily basis concerning knowledge of ‘our world, universe, existence and other people’ is the most unflattering/ignorant aspect about us. I wonder what our society would be like if we all were allowed to experience our true size, importance, and place in this universe.
Like I said you were warned. :)
