Universe

This hardly does justice to the numinous feelings that I have as I learn more about the universe.  Gazing at images taken by the hubble and other telescopes one cannot help but to feel the transcendence that it brings.  As one ponders the vastness of the cosmos and the journey which each atom inside our bodies had to go through to be here in us right now it is one of the most humbling thoughts.  As Lawrence Krauss said, "The stars died so you could be here today."
