I have always had a feeling there is some truth to this idea. Things just start to click when you think of the larger (or smaller) picture this
But when you think about the vastness of this idea it hurts the brain. When going towards the micro, it's hard to imagine that all the atoms that
make up matter could be it's own "solar system". There are just too many of them. Or are there? If one truly accepts the idea of infinity then this
is absolutely possible.
Think about this one for a minute: Size. We tend to look at everything from our perspective of size. Things that are too small, or too big, we do not
see. They might as well be in another dimension. We are lucky enough to know that microbes exist because technology has allowed us to see them. But
look around you now. Do you even comprehend that vast number of LIVING organisms that cover every inch of everything around you?
Now things get real interesting when we go the other direction - toward the macro. Where we become the microbes. If things can be infinitely small
then they can be infinitely large.
Take an ant for example. Could an ant understand how large Earth is? Even if we were able to communicate with them, could an ant ever really see the
earth the way we see it, or would the Earth be it's "Universe"? Is there anything an ant could do to actually see the whole earth, or would it have
to resort to it being a theoretical idea? Even though we co-exist with ants it's like they live in their own world, or dimension.
Things that are closer to our size we tend to more closely understand and relate with. Things that are our size are in "Our world". It's
interesting that we tend to think we are in control of things that are smaller than us in size, and we tend to respect and fear that which is larger
than us. These are generalizations of course, but there is an obvious trend.
Now let me bring up one more thing: Time. There seems to be some correlation between size and time. it seems to be that the smaller something is, the
faster it goes, and the larger something is the slower it goes.
Speed is derived from the time something travels between two points. But the distance between those two points is perceived differently
depending on, you guessed it, size!
A fly zooming around the room seems to be going quite fast, or are we just going really slow? The answer: both. It just depends on your perspective,
or shall we say frequency, or shall we say dimension. (Think, Bullet Time in The Matrix)The Earth is traveling tens of thousands of miles per hour,
but it takes a year to circle the sun. It is fast or slow? An electron travels like the speed of light or something. Fast or slow? It depends on the
size of your frame of reference.
I am not doing a good job of explaining it, but there is certainly something to this and the way it all interconnects. We think atoms are like the
smallest particles, but then they are made up of electrons and quarks and bosons. (I know these smaller things are more like an energy than a
particle, but stay with me here.) Who's to say there aren't smaller things that make up this components? We just can't see them because of our
Same in the macro. Our Earth might just be an electron of something much, much larger. There are things much larger than us, but we just can't see
them due to our set size, or frequency.
Is that why so many people seem to subconsciously feel there is something "more"? Something spiritual, or godlike? We can't explain it but we can
feel it. We could be considered gods of those things that are smaller than us. Is our God simply the something that is so much larger than us that we
cannot see it, though we are a part of it?
