The Universe is all of time and space and its contents. It includes planets, moons, minor planets, stars, galaxies, the contents of intergalactic space, and all matter and energy. The size of the entire Universe is unknown.

The above quote is from WikiPedia.
I see the Universe as a metaphor for our mind and its potential. And yet, the more I expect minds to open and expand as we head into future days, the more walls I come up against.

And I don’t get it. I do not understand it when I run into caged minds because to me, it boils down to this simple essence: Without communication, without even trying, how do you know?

I find this caged thought process sad and ultimately boring. Where’s the fun in having no sense of Belief?

Let’s say this is the only life you live. Then why confine yourself in the shadows of single viewpoints? Why not seek knowledge if you have none? Clarity –multilevel clarity– can be so simple to attain. Negative feelings can be banished by open communication; why remain under a cloud of misunderstanding? Even if you don’t agree, open communication gives another a chance to see your view and perhaps embrace it.

You don’t know until you try, and why not try? It might change nothing; it might change everything. But at least you’ll gain knowledge.

And Knowledge… is Power and Power is Energy, and Energy is the Universe, and that… Matters.
