I saw this video a few weeks ago and it really stuck with me, in particular, this quote that sums up Neil’s point:
“We’ve learned in the last 50 years that of course, not only do we exist in this universe… it is the universe itself that exists within us.”
In watching this, I can’t help but be reminded of JFK’s famous passage, “I really don’t know why it is that all of us are so committed to the sea, except I think it’s because in addition to the fact that the sea changes, and the light changes, and ships change, it’s because we all came from the sea. And it is an interesting biological fact that all of us have, in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea – whether it is to sail or to watch it – we are going back from whence we came.”
I’ve always felt that attachment to the sea, and in general, to our universe. How about you?
