I've been reading this book and it's got me thinking. Things like:
how small is infinity? how vast is small?
It's like travelling against the rush hour. I'm sure it's all been done before, but it's exhilarating anyway.
Is the universe as big going down in size as it is going up? If we keep inventing ways of detecting ever-smaller particles will we keep finding them? Is there no empty space in the innermost sub-atomic structures? Is there no solid wall? Just as these two things cannot be found no matter how far you travel out into the grand cosmos? We have barely begun to explore in either direction. The constraints are as staggering as the scale. Will there be sub-atomic black holes? Is every atom a universe, and every universe an atom?
It's amazing really. I want to try to write around this. To try to describe it, but where to start? I read of the idea that every grain of the universe contains all the information that ever existed. That's inside you and me, too. Was it Agrippa talked about Man being a microcosm? I want to try to capture this.
How does music touch our mood, our emotions? Is it a part of all this? It has to be. How do our emotions resonate with the pleasing sounds of chord changes, like major to minor, on the guitar? How does that work? Those changes, those vibrations we set up in the medium in which we evolved are in touch with the emotions. What do those instruments mimic? Is that spiritual? If so, the spirit is real, exists and resonates with the interplays and harmonies of all those notes. Wow!
So little time.
