Day 17 — There are many mysteries in the universe. If there were one truth I could learn, it would be…

The incredible difference in scale between the tiny world we live in every day and the vastness of all time and space begs the question of whether we will ever be able to grasp the fullness of the universe.

The universe around us is a huge mystery and there are so many perplexing wonders. The sun which is at the centre of the universe is a gigantic mass of fire and its size defies our imagination. You could fit 109 eartths across the sun’s diameter. If you could melt the earth into a liquid and pour it into an empty sphere the size of the Sun, then you really could fit in the equivalent of about 1,300,000 Earths.

Apart from our solar system also there are millions of galaxies. Scientists are still exploring for evidence of life on other planets. Several theories like the big bang theory and others have been put forth to explain the origin of our Universe but this question still baffles us all. Everything around us in nature works with such precision that this creation is a mind-boggling wonder.

I am always in awe about the question of creation and I am constantly in search of the truth. Darwinian theories of biologists, Big Bang theory, Steady state theory & Infinite Universe theory from Science and philosophy also seeks to understand this great mystery.

But my belief is that there is a Universal consciousness that pervades everything, which is the substratum that creates, sustains and ultimately destroys all life.  I am still a seeker of this truth……:)
