Afternoon at the Lagoon

Given that our galaxy the Milky Way consists of 500 billion stars,

given that our universe contains between 200 billion to 2 trillion galaxies,

given that there may be multiply universes,

given that the whole shebang came into being and whirls about governed by a small number of laws that can be known,

doesn’t it seem odd that I believe that I am separate from all of the above, that I am an individual, that I have free will?

I am in and of this world.

The universe is my I.

  1. I remember my father trying to give me an example of eternity: there are no examples, simply because there are no limits. The same applies to the universe. Being a mere mortal makes it almost impossible for me to get my head around all of that.
