I'm experimenting with indieweb projects. The purpose of this site is to experiment with indieweb projects which don't seem to work too well on my other sites. This site is more indieweb friendly. Modern day renaissance man, and a sort of a jack of all trades.

Us and the cosmic bee
I remember an event involving my little sister in the 70's. The family was having a day outing at the park. My little sister was playing on the swing. Suddenly she was screaming and running across the park. She had gotten stung by a bee. She was 3 or 4 years old, and this was her first experience being bitten by a bug. To her it was the most traumatic thing she had ever known. She had lived a sheltered life, and the knowledge that something out there in the big world would intentionally injure, harm or cause her pain was the most horrible experience imaginable to her. I ran over to see what happened to her. She found mommy, and mommy held her in her arms and was comforting her. There , there, I know, it's so sad, it's just terrible. Oh, the baby got stung by the bee, it's just awe-full.
Well, this is what came my mind of what happened to our world.
We, that is, the milky way galaxy is a skin cell on the right toe of a 7 day old child who is the cosmic entity or being that is our universe. For the first time in our universe’s sheltered little life, we got stung on the toe by a cosmic bee. The bee's stinger penetrated the milky way galaxy (a cosmic skin cell) and the poison infected our solar system and the earth. This is the most horrible experience our sheltered little universe has ever had. This has caused our earth to be the most dense matter in the universe.
But this is only our perspective, or the from the mind of this little 7 day old cosmic child that we are, or that our universe is. Consider that this 7 day old cosmic child lives on a great cosmic world shared with billions of other people, plants animals and things in a great comic solar system. From this perspective, we can see that our situation is not as bad as we think. For us, it is very traumatic, but from the greater point of view, it is only the beginning of a life time of experiences to come. As we grow older and live our lives, we will, fall and scrape our knee, fall off a tree and bump our heads etc...and all the things that happen in peoples lives.
We humans, or mankind, exist in 4 of these dimensions, generations or ages, depending on how you choose to perceive or understand this. We are in the 3rd from the largest otherwise known as 3 “D”.
