universe - planetary system and all moving at their own paces amazingly put together
The universe is pretty awesome. All the planets revolving around a central star and never bumping into each other. Somehow we are the only planet that has our kind of lifeforms. Missles shooting through space and not normally causing a big deal here on this planet when the moon is pock faces with hits. Somehow our air stays here and is not sucked off into the vacuum. Just amazing!!

I too share your enthusiasm for the cosmos and all the swirling masses of galaxies out there, I just wish aliens would visit more often and change this boredom I see the world as.

Universe, a very difficult one to define.According to me it can be defined as one in which all the events are arranged in such a way that they don't contradict in the happening of the other event.you know what I am trying to say.I mean it is a place where we have the one set of physical laws taking place. More generally we can define universe as the set of all the points where the same laws of physics are applicable. By these definition we can have time travel & concept of numerous universe can be used for overcoming the contracting situation in modern world.

Whenever I think of the universe I think of all the planets, creatures, people, stars, all the stories which I've always believed is an alternate reality we get to view within the pages of the books, so then I think of everything in each of THOSE realities..and I see something endless lol. It IS very pretty.

I always feel overwhelmed when I think about the vastness of the universe. To me it's a never-ending void filled with a load of planets. I know there's a scientific explanation but I find it fascinating how those huge planets manage to float around. I remember when I was 6 years old asking my teacher what was at the end of the universe, she promptly asked me to ask my Mum...I never did get the answer. On a slightly different note, when i'm feeling stressed and things seem a bit chaotic, I always remember that were whizzing around, travelling at millions of miles per hour on a huge piece of rock which is floating around the universe. It helps me not to expect things to go perfectly smoothly.
