Week 14: a universe

I hope all of you have had a good holiday.

Mine was better than most years, but then all of 2015 has been pretty amazing. You’re welcome to go back and read for yourself.

I don’t feel as if I have anything profound to say this week. I’ve been focused on spending time with my family and preparing to go to New Orleans next week to sell my book at Wizard World Comic Con.

But as a former physician whose Bachelor’s degree was in microbiology, I particularly liked Haanel’s reference to the microscopic world and how our cells are both intelligent and resourceful in carrying out their tasks.

I’ve read that a drop of intestinal flora carries more living creatures than the stars in the known universe. Quadrillions of them, bearing their children and living their lives. Each of us is a universe in our own right, and that thought makes me smile, remembering Men In Black and the galaxies in the game at the end.

And then of course one of my favorite scrolls began yesterday. We are nature’s greatest miracle indeed.

    Hey, Patty, thanks for sharing Your thoughts – the information on the drop of intestinal flora was new to me, fascinating :-D!!!

    I seem to have a new favorite scroll nearly every month. I sometimes like to imagine the universe as one of those drops of intestinal flora and wonder what exists beyond. I wonder about the awesomeness of quantum physics (because I believe that’s where the science we’re studying now has the concrete answers that seem so mysterious).

      I think a lot of quantum physics myself since taking this course. Too bad Haanel didn’t live to see the discovery of the Higgs Boson.
