The answer to infinity? Lets say an atom in one of your hairs lies a universe of its own. Lets say that our universe lies within a an atom of a toenail. A universe within a univers in essence. Ponder that for a while, and post your input.
This could be the answer to infinity? Possibly? This was a theory that I read about a while ago. Its very intersting in my opinion.

This idea of 'infinitude' is interesting, and probably true.

On the one hand, as science probes the smallest particles, it finds that atoms themselves are composed of particles, and so on, ad infinitum; on the other hand, astronomers look out into a Universe which stretches out ever vastlier into infinite space.

And in the arts, poets are moved by this realization, particularly those of the Romantic School; was it not Blake who spoke of seeing 'infinity in a grain of sand'?

But we can also adopt another approach and ask;
'Even if this is all true, what difference does it make to our actual existence HERE and NOW'?

Does it alter the Necessity for Racial Struggle?
