I have a theory that I'm not sure is valid. When people talk about an "infinite" universe, they always look up at the sky. We almost always assume an infinite and endless out and up toward the planets and stars and galaxies.
But what about going in the other direction? I'm talking about going down and inward, looking at small things and knowing that if you could get smaller and smaller yourself, you might just find that "small" goes tinier and more "infinite" and "endless" as well!
There have been a few "B" movies on the subject. Anyway, that's a conversation for another time.
and Another Thing…
Check out a guy who can probably really relate to what I'm saying at www.guzer.com/videos/needle-art.php.
