it is curious the way scientists or people in general refer to the massive size of the universe being meaningless. of course what the are trying to say is that the magnitude and complexity is so far beyond our current human understanding that it is easier just not to think about it. but to say it is meaningless is a slap in the face to the cosmos. it is like saying that roses are infinitely beautiful, but that means nothing. if they meant nothing so many wouldn't get sold every every time a husband has done something he wants his wife to forget.

meaningless, such a powerful insult. your size may be beyond my understanding dear universe, and so is the depth of beauty in a rose. but i love you both all the same.

i was once burnt by ice. mildly confused i went on to realise that the universe must be more complex then i can conceive.

thinking about this makes me feel better about having no idea what is going on.
