re: There will come a time...

There will come a time longer after I am dead when the light from distant galaxies will be too far away to reach us.  This is one of the great secrets of our universe.  That light isn't the fastest thing.  Tehnically.  Technically the universe expands faster than light travels.  Think about a big bang, with light going in two different directions (all different directions actually) at the speed of light.  The light going left travels at the speed of light, the light going right travels at the speed of light.  If you were on a galaxy looking towards the other galaxy and measured the distance using the speed of light as a guage you would find that the galaxy on the other side was expanding away from you at twice the speed of light, would you not?

So technically nothing travels faster than light, but nothing is something because at least it's distance.  There are some of us that suspect that some day based on this, our galaxy will be alone.  Some day, the light from other galaxies will be so far away that we can't even see the light anymore.

That challenges our assumption that we'd love to have that all the entirety of the whole story of life is right here on our planet to see.  Nah, only a few billion years of it.  The beginning of our beginning.  If some day light from other galaxies will be too distant to see... how can we expect we have the entirety of the whole story of the universe just because we know of one big bang.

What if the 12 particles of matter and four forces of nature were just the most recent book, most recent chapter in a much bigger and more infinite story.  What if every time the big bang happened before this, it collapsed into a big crunch and built just a bit more energy until finally it had enough of a bounce to expand out and not collapse on itself.  Are we not just barely above that threashold?  Who is to say that it was random.  What if before the last big crunch someone decided to sacrifice something so that we might continue to exist beyond the end of their world.  To hear such a message would be like hearing the heart beat of a god.  I'm not saying it's real, I'm just saying, smoke a bowl, be happy peaceful and free from worry, and wonder for a bit and the wonders of the universe.
