    The Scale of the Universe

    Scrolling to the right or left will show you the scale of physical objects in the larger scheme. As I moved the scroll bar further and further to the right, I started to feel increasingly insignificant!

    The CIRCLE is the UNIVERSE. Engulfing it is the SPIRITUAL world.

    Amazing!
    I recently watched a video about the Universe on NASA's website. Blew my mind.

    Now I can tell everyone that I seen the Planck length!
    The Planck length is about 10^−20 of the diameter of a proton, and thus is an extremely small length. Measurements of electron radius showed that it is smaller than 10^−20 m, which is a value still 10^15 larger than Planck length.

    Re: The Scale of the Universe

    Does anyone honestly need a "God" when they have the universe to explore? (Perhaps this question will be misunderstood but whatever! )

    It seems to me that "God" would appreciate more our love for the universe above and beyond anything else. Why? Because the universe is God!

    Oh crap, here come the elephants!

    Here's the NASA video. It's quite something.
