The Vastness of the Universe

vastness, Universe, living  being, life, philosophy, zen

The vastness of the Universe can be seen in every living  being. 

There are about 100 Trillion cells in the human body. If we were able to reach into the nucleus of every one of them, and extract just the DNA, then uncoil the double-helix structure. Then, take all those straightened out pieces and connect them end to end into one single strand. If you took that strand of all of your DNA and put one end at the sun, the other end would stretch beyond Pluto.

That's a lot of information.
