But there’s so much in the universe that is already amazing and beautiful and downright epic, without needing to invent these sort of things.
Take astronomy, this picture for example: universetoday.com/wp-content … 2helix.jpg That’s a false-colour image of the clouds of dust and gas given off by a star very much like our own as it reached the end of its life. In fact, look at almost any picture of a reasonably sized nebula (the one I linked was a relatively boring example, but one I’ve seen most recently). There are stars out there big enough that if they were dropped into our solar system in place of the sun, everything out to Jupiter would be inside the star. Supernova can be bright enough that even hundreds of thousands of lightyears away, they can be visible to us during the day. Our planet circles the sun at 107,200 km/h, and people standing on the surface are additionally rotating around the center of the Earth at 1,674.4 km/h (that half a km every second).
Even closer to home, America once had flocks of birds tens of miles long, made up of hundreds of thousands, possibly millions of birds. We have animals that can live in the most ridiculous conditions - the bottom of the ocean, inside sulphur vents from the inner layers of the earth, even goats have varieties that can live on near-vertical cliff faces. Species of fish, plants, and insects have developed proteins that work in the same way as anti-freeze. Hummingbirds can be down to 5 cm (2 inches) in length, and can flap their wings at up to 90 times per second. They can also fly up to 54 km/h (34 mph) forwards, or fly backwards if they so desire. Have you ever considered that insects (those tiny tiny dudes) have actual internal organs, real little organic machines that made their body work. How do they pack them in such a small space? I don’t know.
Consider this: the actual amount of solid matter in a physical object is tiny. Remember atoms? The pictures you’re shown are exaggerations. The actual size of the nucleus (essentially the only solid thing in there) is roughly equivalent to a pea in a cathedral. There is nothing else there making anything solid. And guess what? When you reach lower levels, even that nucleus is just energy fields interacting with each other.
I’ll leave you with one final thing - there is a bird that attracts a mate by… wait for it… doing the moonwalk. Seriously. (I recommend watching the whole thing, the bird is awesome.)
