The Universe as We Know it… In this “Wild and Precious Life”!

The Universe as We Know it… Now.

This video on YouTube is incredibly humbling and inspiring at the same time. Below is the write-up on it. To think that we are part of this vast, vast Universe… what an amazing experience this is!

This calls to mind the Mary Oliver line in her poem – “The Summer Day”:

“…Tell me, what is it you plan to do
With your one wild and precious life?”

Indeed, considering that I’m a conscious being in this amazing Universe, what am I doing with this ‘wild and precious life?’  Food for thought… as I consider my efforts this winter and where I am in my life right now… indeed… Wild and Precious Life… it is good to celebrate this!

From the YouTube description: “The Known Universe takes viewers from the Himalayas through our atmosphere and the inky black of space to the afterglow of the Big Bang. Every star, planet, and quasar seen in the film is possible because of the world’s most complete four-dimensional map of the universe, the Digital Universe Atlas that is maintained and updated by astrophysicists at the American Museum of Natural History. The new film, created by the Museum, is part of an exhibition, Visions of the Cosmos: From the Milky Ocean to an Evolving Universe, at the Rubin Museum of Art in Manhattan through May 2010.”

Thank you to Linda D. and Mary Oliver, for the inspiration!
