Yes, a frequent lament of mine as well....

I find the concept of 10,000,000 light years a real challenge to comprehend, I don't know about you. The idea of light traveling at 299,792,458 meters per second (in a vacuum of course..), and --relatively speaking -- really not getting anywhere in a year's time. Speaking of hallucinogens, if that previous thought doesn't leave you feeling a little bit like Alice in a Lewis Carol sort of way I don't know what does.

I have always found it fascinating that you can look up at the sky and some of what you see are stars, but many are entire galaxies like our own Milky Way. The enormity of the Universe is tough to comprehend. I thought the state of Kansas was a long drive.
