    No it doesn't!

    We still think it's of upmost importance to know whether Lola Ferrari will have a new lip job this month or if she'll settle for a quick restylane filling.

    Or something equally unimportant. If one would grasp the Full Perspective one would fall into an act of ritual impotency, and die from malnutrition due to realizing how utterly worthless in the big scale one is.

    On the other hand... HA! I'm so fucking huge compared to an amoeba. Not to mention a proton. And the scale didn't even go further down, to show the quarks. Gotta add Lola Ferraris twitter to my feed right now!

    I once heard an interesting philosophical remark: that since man is relative to the universe as the smallest particle known is to man, that man IS indeed the centre of the universe, in a logarithmic sense, not a locational one

    I wrote a Sci-fi short story once for my English class, telling the tale of a mash up of the macro and micro world - what if each atom is a universe upon itself, with countless galaxy and stars within. And what if 'our' universe is but such an atom for the super macro beings. And one of their researchers was probing their micro world...

    Thats a valid cosmology in many cosmological systems

    Her.
    And it's perfectly healthy to have no clue about who she is. I actually took the name and was thinking of somebody else (with similar surgery).

    I bet we're a universe inside another universe inside another universe

    and a universe is inside every atom in our universe

    like an infinite matryoshka doll

    I always assumed that the galaxies were just specks of dust, on some other, much larger being's planet. Our place in the universe is extremely insignificant. Granted, there aren't many planets known to man in the Goldilocks zone with life, however, the universe is eternal.
    This all makes me believe even more that to understand ourselves, we have to look at the bigger picture. Universes and atoms are similar when looking at them from a distance, so what's the difference?
