What do you guys think about when you look at the sky, sun, stars, other heavenly bodies? I think about lots of things: various connections to legend, literature, and science; what's out there that I can't see; which stars are still there; 'the stage is too big for the drama'; someone or something may be up there looking back at me, so I should probably put some clothes on; what do other people think about when they look at the sky; if I ask the question in GD will anyone give me a serious answer... ... which reminds me of something else: Has anyone's view of the Heavens changed as you've learned more about science (astronomers/cosmologists especially)? Do you now see less or more? I've been playing around with a poem comparing different fates of the universe to fates of men. Maybe some day I won't have to humanize these things to make them meaningful. Does an immense spinning sphere of methane and ammonia move any of you? I feel the wonder and amazement - what else am I missing?
