the rest of the universe must be very dark.

imagine yourself floating so deep in space that you cannot even see your hands, and the blue and yellow and red stars spotted in all directions are the only assurance that you exist.

it's probably very quiet, too.


5 amusing musings:

Ash said...

No air/wind/whatever so nothing to carry the soundwaves :O "In space, no one can hear you scream"

But yeah I know what you mean, I've thought about it once or twice, myself.

That Blond Guy said...

Nah, I've been there. It's not so bad. Long as you bring a flashlight.

Miss Angie said...

There's such peace in those words... If only you could lose yourself in those imaginings... Heavenly.

Grace said...

Hah, I've always kind of wondered. But I like all of the excitement here better!

Mack said...

I think it's slightly frightening to think about. Surrounded by beautiful things, but pondering your own existence in relation to them. The silence would be the worst- to be stationary in silence, your only company being your own thoughts. *shiver*

Have you ever read Ray Bradbury's "Illustrated Man?" If you haven't, I think you'd really enjoy it (because it discusses things like that). :)
