An exploration of the concept of Human Insignificance
This is an exploration of the concept of Human Insignificance. By examining the two extremes of the size spectrum; the very small, represented by macro photographs of plant life; and the very big, represented by stars and celestial bodies; a conclusion can be reached about the human plane of existence and our significance in the larger scheme of things. The existence of an infinite universe that is ruled by the laws of physics and chemistry can be mirrored here on earth by the existence of a micro-world, hidden to the naked eye. In our every day life, we are oblivious to amazing displays of majestic beauty happening all around us, in both ends of the size scale.
