And let suppose, only for a moment, shall we?, that we are the only intelligent life in the universe.

Are we really then so small?

I think if we suppose we're the only intelligent life in the universe, then our egos, at least, must be gigantic.

Right. But if it were really the case that we were the only intelligent life in the universe?

It doesn't even matter. My point is that size doesn't necessarily have anything to do with dimension.

With those numbers?

If we suppose that we're the only intelligent life in the whole of the Universe, imo, then we're not very intelligent.

Y'all are missing my point.

I see your point and agree completely, since we're speaking strictly in hypotheticals.

Then this is Olympus.
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats

"It is so large, Technically it shouldn't exist according to current physics theory's"

I'm sorry, Which theory is that? I know there are many, many theory's out there, But I think I may have missed this one. (Among others)

If you wish to appear ruinously scientific you might want to start by knowing no one could have counted all them stars.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Thanks for the great picture Doug.

I also like the video, Expansiveness of the universe, although I think the picture is better in some ways.

On a related subject, the video Powers Of Ten... the unimaginable size of our universe shows moving out from earth into distant space.

The video Powers of 10 is somewhat repetitive of the previous video, but the ending goes from the very large to the very small.
Humans make life so interesting. Do you know that in a universe so full of wonders, they have managed to create boredom. Quite astonishing.
