Observations of the Moon
Think of the farthest away from where you are now that you’ve ever been. Look that direction. Can you see that place? Of course not. Go outside. How about now? Probably not. But look at the moon. It’s there, you see it; it’s a real place. The moon is many many times father away from you than the furthest you’ve ever been from where you are now, but you can see it and not the other. We’re all, in fact, very small, standing in the light of something very great. We see it every single night, but we ignore it. We marvel instead about how far we’ve travelled, comparing to earthly measurements and distances. When we look up, we find that it’s not our distances travelled that have changed, it’s our measuring stick.
