I'm not familiar with the format of the forum, but could someone straighten me out on a question about distance and as to whether or not distance is only an illusion? How is it that the human body and the immediate physical world JUST HAPPENS TO BE on a scale of size that is so close to what we consider zero length, when you can look out a universe with apparently no end. That is, a 6 feet tall man is only 6 feet larger than zero length. A man can put his two index fngers together and say "that's zero length", but he can't even fathom the distance to the nearest star. So, is zero length even attainable, after all, it is infinitely small. If a human were the size of the apparent size of an electron ( 2 x 10 -15 meters) then 6 feet distance would be(if may calculations are correct) about 1/4 light year away. So for an electron at our toes, the top of our head would be 1/4 light year away. So the human body is huge compared to an observer on an electron. I think our perspective of the world around us is only a point in space afterall. This is more philosophical than hard science obviously. To summarize, how does the size of a human JUST HAPPEN to be so close to one end of the distance "yardstick" (6 feet from zero) and so seemingly infinitely far from the other end of the distance "yardstick". Is our seeming proximity to zero length only an illusion or are we situated somehere within the scale which goes from the infinitely large to the infinitely small, neither of which are obtainable.
