Earth is really a person on another planet.

That is how small we are.

That would mean space is not actually a vaccume but that it seems like that to us.

All these hopes of ftl and such could be null if we just increased our size to the size of earth as we leave.

You are the single most important thing in your universe.

How big are you?

100%

Because we're all apart of the universe we're just as small and as big as anything or anyone else since we're made up of similar parts that don't "belong" to anyone. So however big the universe is, that's how big you are.

The only thing we "own" is our perception of things. We do control our bodies but everything that makes them up is part of a much larger system we have no control over. Therefore, you are as big as the universe.

You know ants? Then there are the tiny atoms that make ants? And the tiny makeup of what makes atoms?

Wayyyyy smaller.....

Some rough sciencey-sounding math:

According to the post above, there are approximately 7x10^27 atoms in the human body. According to a dubious source I just googled, there are roughly 1x10^57 atoms in the Sun. Assuming the Sun is a fairly average-sized star as compared to the rest of the universe, then given that the above poster ALSO said there are roughly the same amount of stars in the universe as there are atoms in the human body, that means that all the atoms in all the stars in the universe would be calculated by multiplying like so:

(7x10^27) x (1x10^57) = 7x10^84 total atoms in all stars. We're ignoring atoms NOT in stars, since stars make up the majority of the universe's mass anyway.

So now let's look at the ratio of atoms in a person to atoms in all the universe.

(7x10^27)
7x10^84

This gives us 10^(-57). So you are roughly 0.0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001% percent of the universe.

Scale of the Universe

This site should give you a good idea of your size compared to the rest of the universe. It gets kind of mind boggling.

Small and big at the same time.. Want to know whats at the edge of the universe..Travel to the edge of your mind.. Maybe they are once and the same thing...

purp..

Im big enough to get the job done.

wait what are we talking about again?

Your dont even exist in the eyes of infinity from a physical perspective but you are the space between things in the eyes of the divine.

Someone needs to sweep up all that inter stellar space dust
The job is yours

Dont look at me, thats gravity's job.

In a word, in the eyes of a giant, to whom our Suns were what our atoms are to us, the Milky Way would only look like a bubble of gas.

Forget your size. It is all relative--at least that is what Einstein said.
He also said, "You can step easily across your kitchen from the sink to the 'fridge. That is personal relativity which is the only thing of importance." He then thought a moment and added, "Who cares what else is out there? I really don't. I just do things with math, and I know damned well where my beer is kept."

You are the Universe. You are all that is, and all that will ever be. You are the largest thing and the smallest thing in existence.

We are as small as we should be.....

“The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy offers this definition of
the word "Infinite".
Infinite: Bigger than the biggest thing ever and then some.
Much bigger than that in fact, really amazingly immense, a
totally stunning size, "wow, that's big", time. Infinity is just so
big that by comparison, bigness itself looks really titchy.
Gigantic multiplied by colossal multiplied by staggeringly
huge is the sort of concept we're trying to get across here.”

Above is the best way of describing infinity that i have found .

You are the opposite of that in the overall scheme of things .

Truer words were never spoken

Such a shame the elite delude themselves thinking otherwise

The universe is only apparently infinite. Or merely infinite. There's a fine line there somewhere I think.

Imagine you are just a function of F; --a tiny frame in a larger "Julia set" of experience and perturbation. You are fractally part of the larger equation by default, and share in its substance and form. The universe is only merely infinite. It is infinite for all intents and purposes you can muster or imagine. That's "close enough" for all sorts of godgames the universe likes to "play" with itself.

On one hand, you are made up of unimaginably tiny atoms, joined together in clusters of energy known commonly as "things." On the other -- a single atom is mostly "empty space."

You are the middle path between the infinitely small and the infinitely large. Between the infinitely simple and the infinitely complex. But only apparently, or "merely" so.

Your perspective is a function of F; its depth or range is based on the resolution you are capable of displaying given the tools you possess or have invented to augment your experience of largeness, or "smallness" from within the set itself.

This doesn't diminish or magnify your experience of universe in any way, as even your threshold or tolerance for "unknown unknowns" is like an event horizon marking the limits or boundary of your (apparent) ability to perceive them in the first place. Basically --It's a lot of empty space in either direction for you to shout your questions at from here.

Listen to your smallest inner voice. Those are often "other peoples questions." Answer them if you can.
