luminous Chaff

Remember that next time you see an image of a beautiful spiral galaxy. What you see is not the galaxy at all. What you see is some luminous chaff floating at the center of a vast, dark ocean. So it is not that the universe is big and we are small that robs us of significance. We are barely part of the universe at all. That is why we don't matter.
