Well now you can. Here is something for everyone to think about!
Just because we perceive a beginning and an end to our lives does not mean that all things have a beginning and an end. It would be human arrogance to thing such things and yet we do it every day.
We know from records that the sun goes through an 11 year sun spot cycle some more violent than others and yet we cannot perceive what makes it do that!
Imagine just for a second that if there was an energy greater than the sun that pulsed throughout the universe, and that same energy not only influences the sun but us as well then we would have to rethink what we have thought for the past few hundred years or so.
Imagine if you will again that this energy was like the pulse in our own bodies and it had a rhythm of its own pulsing in and out, in and out for thousands of years. BUT! Each pulse in and out lasted millions of years one massive pulse out then retract back then go out again. And that within it there were smaller minor pulses that were energized by this other more massive force much like our own bodies and the other organs that rely on the greater energy to survive and those smaller organs have their own rhythms separate from the major one.
And imagine again if there was a mathematical way to portray these events and that, that equation showed beyond any shadow of a doubt that it does happen exactly that way.
What would you do???
Galaxies that are far older than many first imagined are still being discovered. When astronomers studied the far reaches of darkness expecting to find new galaxies being formed, they found instead old galaxies and still more space.
One peek into a small part of the sky, one giant leap back in time. The Hubble telescope has provided mankind's deepest, most detailed visible view of the universe.
Representing a narrow "keyhole" view stretching to the visible horizon of the universe, the Hubble Deep Field image covers a speck of the sky only about the width of a dime 75 feet away. Though the field is a very small sample of the heavens, it is considered representative of the typical distribution of galaxies in space, because the universe, statistically, looks largely the same in all directions. Gazing into this small field, Hubble uncovered a bewildering assortment of at least 1,500galaxies at various stages of evolution.
If humanity needs to have a beginning and an end to things then best keep it local!
