Personal Reflections: Universe and Photographs of the Cosmos

It’s your trippy friend again…

feelin’ slightly energized while

indulging the appetite for daydreaming

about the cosmos and teeny tiny worlds.

Image above:

split end – human hair

Stilllllllll too lazy to actually study

quantum physics, a technicality which certainly

will not deter me from gushing with awe.

So many lovely galaxies

and subatomic particles.

So little time.

red blood cells

Delta region – Netherlands

Omg, this human egg image gets me every time.

Ghadamis River – Libya

Can I tickle your brain

and remind you what George Carlin

said about the universe?

“If it’s true that our species is alone in the universe,

then I’d have to say that the universe aimed rather low

and settled for very little.”

I prefer to rest my thoughts here:

“A mind at peace,

a mind centered and focused

on not harming others,

is stronger than any physical force

in the universe.”

                               –Wayne Dyer

Great Sandy Desert – Australia

“If the whole universe has no meaning,

we should never have found out that it

has  no meaning: just as if there were no light

in the universe and therefore no creatures with eyes,

we should never know it was dark.

Dark would be without meaning.”

                                                            –C. S. Lewis

Too trippy for a Monday mornin’?

Peace to you right where you are.

    These are wonderful images and I thought it was beautiful art. I wonder if I put one on our wall if anyone would know….initeresting thought huh?

    definitely put it on the wall. i have also toyed with the idea of doing a series of abstract paintings with these as my reference. brings new meaning to 'abstract' i think.

    "Trippy"? Not at all.. it put my racing mind to calm down a little. The 1st image gave me goosebumps. This is amazing!!!

    It would be great seeing your interpretation of one of these pictures.

    Have a blessed week, M.

    okay! WHOAAA. This is trippy. So, very very trippy 🙂 The human egg got me too. Imagine a printed sarong like the great sandy desert of australia?

    Wouldn't that make you make a while by the sea?
