Andromeda Galaxy

Went up Angeles Crest Highway last night with my neighbor to look up at the stars. It was quite fantastic. The first time I’d ever had the opportunity to notice the white swash of stars known as our Milky Way. Even got to see Andromeda (pictured above in slightly more spectacular detail) through the nifty telescope.

As fascinated as I was by all there was to see, it mostly got me thinking about all the big questions. Science, and God, and about why we’re here, if there’s any reason to it at all, and whether or not this life is our nirvana or just a prison. I think at one point I even blurted out something like, “I hope that some day my spirit will no longer be bound by time and space, and I can really know all those things out there.”

I feel like that every day, and not just in relation to all the stars in the sky, but with the people I love. There is a big part of me that has never accepted the limits imposed by a physical existence. When somebody needs me, I know that it’s right to be there instantly, but I can’t teleport. My heart will never understand being separated from special people; I want them around always, but I’m not omnipresent either.

As much as I’m amazed by physics, I hate that it’s applicable to me.

    I plan on becoming omnipotent one day, when that happens, I will allow you to be omnipresent.

    I love it up there, it reminds me of home… Home is New Mexico.

    Why aren’t you doing the BoobieThon? Hahaha, I never thought I would say those words.

    I’m there with you. I think many of us feel the same way.

    Well shoot, you might wanna check out watching the Elegant Universe on PBS online. You can watch the entire 3-hour show online… Isn’t that a trip? It’s all about string theory in physics.
