    Starry sky is the most beautiful sight ‘can think of! feeling tiny, yes! and at the same time makes me feel good, as ‘belong there…
    Vincent van Gogh said it better ‘For my part I know nothing with any certainty but the sight of the stars makes me dream’, see, he knew we know nothing, and he isnt the only one 🙂

  2. I feel like that all the time, insignificant, when I think about the hundreds of billions of galaxies in a possibly infinite universe. Infinite possibilities, abbreviated, is Ip and backwards is Pi, and Pi is a symbol of the infinite. Coincidence? I have no idea, I’m just making this up as I go. 🙂

    • You did pretty good actually. I started reading some ancient Indian writings on astronomy and philosophy…. it goes something similar .. they wrote comprehensively about infinite and how insignificant we are.. and to comprehend the extent of that infinite is not searching outside.. but searching with in.. 🙂
