Our Galaxy’s Umbilical Cord
I was partway through Ariele Adams’ “Galactic Center Thoughts” video (part XI) on YouTube, during which she was discussing how someone (herself, in this case) might describe what the GC is like, and I got a mental flash: the GC is our Milky Way’s navel.
Now, on its own, this is nothing spectacular, but it opened up a channel of information that led me to start thinking about how the universe is still expanding, and that brought me to the realization that this ‘baby space’ may still be in its mother’s womb.
I’ve discussed previously that I’ve seen our Universe as God’s body, ever since I was a child. But I’d never connected the dots before. Planet Earth is an electron in the atom of a cell sitting on the pinkie of God’s left foot. And, when its inhabitants gaze up at the starry firmament, we are overwhelmed by the beauty, complexity and immensity of All That Is.
But why do we presume that God is a fully formed individual, looking like an Wise Old Man sitting on a Throne of Clouds (in Heaven)? Maybe God is still developing, still growing, a baby in its mother’s womb, using its consciousness to explore all aspects of its own body.
Now, that final image of 2001: A Space Odyssey finally makes sense to me…
