Infinite Echoes: From the Vastness of the Cosmos to the Depths of Our Being

Exploring the similarities between the patterns in our bodies and the vastness of the universe.

Spiritual Quote: There are roughly a thousand times more atoms in a single human body than there are stars in the observable universe.
Spiritual Quote: Compared to their sizes, an atom's nucleus to electron gap is 8.5 times that of Earth to the Sun.

Our world is full of repeating shapes and patterns, big and small. It’s like how a tree branch splits into smaller branches, over and over. This idea of patterns inside patterns is called fractals. It’s like a never-ending picture where the smaller parts look like the bigger parts.

Scientists believe there is much more to the universe than what we can currently observe. The term ”observable universe” refers to the part of the universe from which light has had enough time to reach us since the Big Bang, given the finite speed of light. This region has a radius of about 46.5 billion light-years.

However, the actual, total universe is believed to be much larger, possibly infinite.

Consider for a moment that our vast, incomprehensible universe, with its billions of galaxies and trillions of stars, is analogous to just one human body in a realm even larger and more expansive. In this grander realm, our universe would be as insignificant as a single atom.

If we were to use the same ratio of atoms in our body to stars in the universe, this means that what we perceive as our entire universe, in all its vastness, would constitute only a mere 1/1000th of this greater reality. The expanse we know, with all its galaxies and wonders, would be but a tiny fraction, similar to how one atom is just a minuscule part of who we are.

What if we zoomed out just to discover that we return to ourselves?
