The other night as I was waiting for sleep I tried to imagine the immensity of space. I imagined flying past uncountable galaxies as far as you could see.
Then I thought, try to imagine not the scale of galaxies but at the scale of me. For a fraction of an instant I succeeded.
It about precipitated a panic attack. It felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest and I a hundred feelings I can’t express went thought me.
I quickly went back to the galaxy scaled imagining. The raw reality of the size of the universe is too much for our limited psyches to accept.
“I imagined flying past uncountable galaxies “
You must have been traveling at ludicrous speed.
