Space, it is a concept that people understand, yet does anyone know what it really is?
Take a clear summer night on the water. Over on fire island once the sunsets, there is barely any sun pollution to alter the sky’s beauty. It is very common to see people sitting upon the dock gazing at the stars. The stillness of the night causes anyone to think deeper than they’re everyday life.
So, when looking up at space what do we actually see? We see leptons, wormholes, bosons, quarks, etc. but do we actually understand what we look at?
I think space in itself depicts how ambiguous life can be. We think we understand it at face value by what we see, but in essence there are more deeper areas we cannot even comprehend. I think space being an analogy for our lives can explain how to understand others and our own problems.
I think by using the constellations we find answers in our own problems, but constellations are just what our imagination can see according to Maculley. SO, as humans look for insight into themselves they look outward at the sky. People are able to find there inner thoughts from the outside worlds.
