((Allow me to be OOC for a second, because I need to say a thing.
The universe is infinite. It has no edge, it has no center, it goes on forever. It’s so vast we will never ever ever ever even come close to even finding a decent portion of it.
And this scares people. It makes them feel small and unimportant and vulnerable. looking up at the expanse of stars at night makes them feel insignificant and scared. Scared from all the uncertainty of infinities.
But when I see stars, I see things like this. Huge expanses of infinite beauty. Imagine what incredible beauty the limitless universe has to offer. There’s so much spectacle and brilliance that no matter how hard we try, we could never see it all. The universe abounds with awe-inspiring physical formations and the possibility for incredibly complex and interesting organisms, enthralling aliens of every shape and size. Everything and anything could be happening, everything and anything exists. All possible and impossible beauty and wonder exists.
And I get to be a part of it. I get to exist and be a contributor to the massive collage of sparkle and color and intelligence and stardust. I get to exist in this universe of infinities.
Staring up at the night sky or even just looking at pictures like these online makes me feel like I get to be beautiful, too.))
