So, I just saw this picture on Facebook and it compelled me to start a thread about it.
I'm tryna hear some theories, or even just wonders, on what the universe is.
NOT how it came to be or any shit like that, this is not a religious thread.





I personally think of it this way(or at least, I've always wondered if this is how it is):


"Rock and roll is fun, but if you ever hear someone
Say you are huge, look at the moon, look at the stars, look at the sun
Look at the ocean and the desert and the mountains and the sky
Say I am just a speck of dust inside a giant's eye
I am just a speck of dust inside a giant's eye"


I Like Giants
by Kimya Dawson



tl;dr:

What if all we are is tiny little cells inside of a giants body?
Our planet is a cell, and all of the other planets are cells?
And... what if the cells inside of OUR bodies contain tiny little galaxies?
Far too small to be seen under even the best of microscopes...

Srsly though. Not even high.

Maybe the design was just good, so it got used in many different things. Whether you believe in a Creator (not necessarily standard "Creationism" but any creator, from aliens to some nebulous being) or whether you embrace evolution completely, there's no denying the fact that we basically see the same design in every mammal's eye. We also see similarities in design in the pictures above, right? So, maybe it was just a good model and therefore kept being used, huh?

Oversaturation of Self, generations of disenfranchised youths, removed from Gaia's teet by the MAN. Those pictures are stupid. There are some species of animals that resemble dicks, that doesn't mean they're dicks. Our sigs should have babies (mine would wear the pants)

GUYS my there is a tree outside my house that looks like a giant penis. are our penises just giant trees that integrated themselves into our DNA during our evolution?????
It's over simplified, So what!

Um...whatever kind of weird trip you're on, please restate your comment in non-New-Age-sounding bullshit. The rest of us, we don't speak about "Gaia's teet" and all that shit. You really do sound like some angry, pretentious New Ager. Problem is, the rest of us...we don't talk that way.

It's not necessarily the pictures. I mean, the pictures are what reminded me of this... theory-thing that I have, but. I was mostly just wondering what other peoples thoughts and ideas on the subject were. Also, pants are for squares! Who even wears those ever? PAH.

All trippy bs aside. We are literally stardust.

1) You do realize that you can just type "fuck", right? 2) Are you drunk or high? 'Cause if not, you're acting like a little asshole. 3) Quoting a RATM song doesn't make you cool.

You remind me of all the wiggers I used to knock down to size in high school.

It's not actual photograph of the universe (obviously). It's an estimation of how the universe looks. I assume some astrophysicist made an approximation of how it would look, if you lined up all the galaxies in the universe we know of and then extrapolated to "find" the overall picture. He or she may have used a computer to model the data. In other words, it's somewhat of a very good educated guess.

Edit2:
I can't take it. I'm putting KiLLSWiTCH-KnoT on my ignore list. I really didn't know one person could be this annoying and pretentious. Ugh...

Oh, I also forgot to mention this.
This part actually does have to do with the picture.


I imagine that, when a star dies, the matter from it breaks apart
and flies it's shit into space, right?... Correct me if I'm wrong on that.
But it could possibly one day form a planet, right?...

It's maybe even just slightly like the birth of a cell.
Again... correct me if I'm wrong. Cells split, don't they?
And then they form a new cell, when they split.

Well as a species, we have this idea that we're completely seperate and detatched from the rest of the universe, when in actuality, we're connected to it at the most indivisible scale. Maybe the idea that there are galaxies within our cells isn't that stupid. I mean, obviously, that is pretty stupid, but to me those pictures more than anything else are proof of how connected we are to the rest of the universe. The only part of us that doesn't physically exist is our mind, yet we still seperate ourselves from the rest reality, yet most of us don't even believe in anything other than this 3D illusory existence. THIS BODY, THIS BODY HOLDING ME, BE MY REMINDER HERE THAT I AM NOT ALOOOAOOOONEEE.

What if ultramassive stars (some about 300x our sun in size) are just atoms of a midget?
#26
i mean, scope of size, we cant see shit that is so small, like really small, microbes in comparison to microbes yknow, theres not reason to believe there's not thousands of civilisations so small you dont even realise, just in the room you're in right now, or living on you

its just as viable that the universe and beyond isn't even as much as a grain of salt in something far bigger


but more to the point, who gives a ****?

our minds are just playing tricks on us man.
all we know of this world is what our minds and senses allow us to perceive. we know nothing of reality, or the truth beyond the mind.
we are not our thoughts, and its when we succumb to the ego and allow our thoughts to run our lives that we become crazy.

Here is a quote from a book I am reading, I just read this today:

“People lose fifty million skin cells every day. The cells get scraped off and turn into invisible dust, and disappear into the air. Maybe we are nothing but skin cells as far as the world is concerned.”

I'm noooooooooooooooot I just get bored when people take me seriously on here what even the fvck happened to the pit, or maybe you're expected to act differently when you're not 16, like, you're expected to actually act like a real person or something. I have to pretend to be a real person in real life, fvcked if I have to do it on the internet too.

If I found out that was true I'd live my life like normal. We're already minuscule compared to the known universe.

Although it would be odd, the world being a cell in somebody's body. Then I'd be unmotivated, because it would seem like our world is disposable and obsolete.

Kimya Dawson's music is swell

But no we are not nebulas or cells or galaxies, at least I don't think so.
