Here we are, on planet Earth, which spins on its axis and revolves around the Sun, which orbits in an ellipse around the center of the Milky Way, which is being pulled towards Andromeda within our local group, which is being pushed around inside our cosmic supercluster, Laniakea, by galactic groups, clusters, and cosmic voids, which itself lies in the KBC void amidst the large-scale structure of the Universe. Think about it a while the next time when you sit down in front of some beautiful nature scene.

The scale of nature is something that our brains can never really grasp.  We can scientifically measure the distance between Earth and Mars and which is 78,340,000 kilometers, but can you imagine how long distance is 78 million kilometres? If you measure this by how many time you would need to go around our Earth, the answer is 1954 times. If you managed to get some idea how much is 78 million kilometres, try grasping the scale which lies between us and our neighbour galaxy, Andromeda. The distance is roughly 2,5 million light-years, so it is about 23,651,826,181,452,000,000 kilometers. Good luck understanding that.   

It’s not designed by humans.  That is one of the coolest part of nature.  Nowadays, our understanding about nature is really scientific as before it used to be more spiritual.  Spiritual…..rdgridsgsöirs
