how did this start -

well I am not exactly sure how or where or why I began thinking about this but I do remember somewhere in the mid 1960's being outside at night - looking up at the stars and while thinking about some of the things that had been discussed in class during the say about the atoms - and electrons and protons and neutrons that were believed to make up the atom - and at the same time just how small the atom within my body is compared to the stars and the distance between the stars and those little tiny atoms in my body - and I began to imagine - what if our earth were like an atom in the hand of a giant man whose body was made up of all of the stars that we could see - that were in our Universe -
