The Universe

I know this flies in the face of some philosophies posted here. I accept and even respect those opinions and will even go so far as to say I can agree with them, at least to the extent of where they come from. But from my perspective there are some things that just make sense to me regardless of the any sort of rationale or grounding in fact. As most of my waking hours are spent on a diverse and sometimes lively University campus, I couldn't help but make this observation.

The brilliance of the Universe never ceases to amaze me. Just the notion of individualism speaks volumes. When you take into consideration that, outside of relatively few exceptions, no two creatures on the planet are identical you can’t help but marvel at the creativity on display. Certainly, a lesser Universe would have created maybe one or two models and been satisfied. But for the billions of creatures on this planet alone, the Universe has broken the mold after each one.

Happy Friday everyone.
