    Suddenly Presteign began speaking in a low monotone. "PyrE is a pyrophoric alloy. A pyrophore is a metal which emits sparks when scraped or struck. PyrE emits energy, which is why E, the energy symbol, was added to the prefix Pyr. PyrE is a solid solution of transplutonian isotopes, releasing thermonuclear energy on the order of stellar Phoenix action. Its discoverer was of the opinion that he had produced the equivalent of the primordial protomatter which exploded into the Universe."


    "My God!" Jisbella exclaimed.


    Dagenham silenced her with a gesture and bent over Presteign. "How is it brought to critical mass, Presteign? How is the energy released?"


    "As the original energy was generated in the beginning of time," Presteign droned. "Through Will and Idea."

    Incredible. It really makes EVERYTHING we know seem insignificant. If all of humanity vanished tomorrow, the universe wouldnt even notice. I never get tired of seeing these animations.

    The amazing thing is that it is truly so vast the human brain cannot comprehend it. We can imagine and try to understand but you just can't rationalize being a grain of sand in the ocean.

    While vast, a lot of people can comprehend it. It is just a number, even if it is a really big number. Numbers are understandable.

    There are some cosmological theories that would make all the vastness of your known universe just one grain of sand.....

    Would be kind of weird if the only life in all of that is on tiny little Earth.

    OP, great post. Just finished reading "A Universe from Nothing."
    Written by Lawrence M Krauss.

    Liked the physics in the book, but felt he strayed from cosmology too much.

    Interesting play on the phrase "nothing is impossible" in that he proves that what we may think of in the vacumn of space as "nothing" is still inhabited by energy of dark matter, so there is no such thing as nothing, hence nothing is impossible.

    Like a chicken watching a card trick, I know I see something, but don't really understand it.

    Nah, I comprehend stuff like that before breakfast. Heck, before I have a shower in the morning, even.

    OTOH, when my wife explains why we need to buy things because she has a coupon, that I have trouble with.

    That's what we think we see, or understand ... all the while standing on this little dust mote.

    Imagine what we might see and come to know if we were able to see from a different perspective.

    And to think that some folks are still comfortable in their unwavering belief that it's reasonable to think that we're the only sentient life in the known & unknown universes ...

    How does it make me feel? Smaller than a Higgs Boson.

    Infinitesimally insignificant. And I am quite okay with that.

    I was going to to state insignificant, too. However, I think your adjective sums it up better. :wavey:

    Add to that: small.
