On a More Philosophical Note

On a more philosophical note……….I remember  watching the campy sci-fi movie, “The Incredible Shrinking Man”, when I was 10 years old and never ever forgot it         ( see Youtube clip below) . The Infinite and the infinitesimal……..a dialectic in space-time. We are all metaphorically “shrinking” in an ever expanding Universe among nearly infinite universes. Is life as a cosmic speck in the so-called Multiverse worth something?   I think it is when you learn to love generously and when you learn to grow in wisdom. When I feel I am doing that and allow myself to experience all of the very human qualities that go with personal growth like the bittersweet emotions of regret and remorse ( often in hindsight), wonder and awe in the present, and hope for the future….that’s when I feel my existence is “worth it”, even if I dont have all the Stephen Hawking like quantum physics and Albert Einstein like mathematics worked out (see previous blog on the Big Bang).
