From Our Perspective

All things in our universe, from our perspective, are to scale.
We examine minutely the make up of life.
Bugs, flowers, atoms, genes –
smaller and smaller we search for that which will explain our existence.

But what if we are looking in the wrong direction.
What if we, as atoms in drops of water,
are merely drops on the surface
of something larger.

We can now examine the tiniest particles
within our universe
but what if we ourselves are simply tiny particles
on the edge of a much larger universe.

We’ve travelled into space only to look back at where we came from.
Maybe space, beyond what we have seen,
is simply the ether of a much larger world
than we can yet imagine.

Turn the microscopes around,
examine the largeness
rather than the smallness
of life.

Bubbles of universes moving,
affecting bubbles of other worlds
advanced beyond asking.
