Looking for nothing

"We pointed the most powerful telescope ever built by human beings at absolutely nothing for no other reason than because we were curious and discovered that we occupy a very tiny place in the heavens."



We aimed at nothingness.

We found something bigger than ourselves.

We still don't understand how.

Yet we believe in what we see.

We believe in what we seek

even when we do not know what it is.
