Enjoy the cosmic ride:

    Way cooler than Star Wars.

  2. I once saw a video that covers the universe, like this one, then goes in the opposite direction down to the sub-atomic level of protons, electrons, and quarks. It's a toss-up which is more wondrous.

    This is one of the things that originally drew me to Yoga philosophy. It's pretty clear that the ancient Yoga sages saw the world as wondrous in this way, even though they didn't have the tools to analyse it so clearly.
