    Dr Neko I don't always understand your posts but I'm REALLY GLAD you post them.

    You are on a different wavelength from many of us here and it's a breath of fresh air...

    You're helping me get out of my own head and I need that sometimes.

    PS - I LMAO watching that

    The Simpsons came out while I was living in Asia, and long before Internet video became common. I never got in the habit of watching it. Years and years passed, and I finally I thought, "Guess I just missed that boat..."

    One day I'll probably buy 3 months of food, pay all my bills, lock my door, and then watch the entire Simpsons series from beginning to end. And all because some Neko dude (dudette?) reminded me of what I was missing, lol

    Our universe may actually be a singularity.

    To answer the question:

    Yes, but no.

    From our perspective no, but from another entities, we very well might be xD.

    All just a matter of perspective really xD

    Hugs. Our universe might indeed be a singularity. Black holes are said to pull everything including light inside them. Thus producing a singularity of it all. Now that certainly must be relevant!
    Yes. No. Our universe is in no way microscopic to us. lol What if such entities are real? After all... We are real and we are the living proof of an organism that is capable of looking through microscopes and telescopes. Reality can not take that away from knowledge!

    I googled Richard Feynman. Thank you for mentioning him. He looks like a great read. :)

    Thanks to all for helping me expand my horizons,* or at least stretch out one or two neurons ?

    I am being pulled into a black hole ... to be embraced by a singularity where I will finally be at one with my microscopic nature...

    When people see how little I understand of science (bacteria are viruses, right ? why doesn't gravity pull astronauts down toward earth ?) they get this look on their faces... "Are you sure you're Asian?"

    The sound you just heard is me running back to my comfort zone.


    *.. or rather, "event horizon" ? Sorry...

    Bacteria is such a strong word for our ancestors I think. Maybe we ought to name them the 'Originals' or the 'Ancients' to stop others forgetting that all life on Earth today is the children of the same germs.

    The universe is a view of our mind.
    Our mind is microscopic.
    As a consequence, the universe is indeed microscopic.

    This is actually a universal Truth. Why did I not understand this before? :) 

    Thank you for opening my EYES on this tiny world

    "When matter is broken down to the point where even a forensics team can not detect it, does that mean it is not there at all? Until of course such advancements have been made. Or does it degrade forever? We do know that it carries less and less weight and by the time it is microscopic, it is so light weight that it actually goes up. If it continued, would it break the earth's gravitational field and be taken by space?" ~ DrNeko.

    Matter can only be broken down so much until it is composed of particles and energies that can act very strange. Because of their size and their sometimes odd behavior they can't be treated exactly so they are treated with statistical analysis. The universe at or near the Planck Scale is very odd indeed.

    Hey Doc,

    Have you read up on the Higgs Field, and the Higs Boson -- in credible sources, of course. These concepts are kind of the kernel behind matter as we know it (matter with mass) and probabilistic matter (matter without mass), and the power of observation (some experiments yield different results if they are observed than they do when they are not observed, and the act of observation causes probabilistic matter to become "normal" matter, as we know it). The concepts also tie into the concept of a participatory universe -- pretty heady stuff.

    Hugs,
    Audry Leigh

    The Higgs Field is also my next destination, I have certainly heard of higgs bosons and the great hadron collider. :)
