    • The demarcation boundary between the Macrocosm and Micosm is the observer’s eye which focuses the observable Universe on to the retina. From there it is transmitted to the brain which then analyzes it and gives it a definition. We have millions of brains working on this same same analysis day in and day out. If all of us on the dark side of the earth simultaneously loked up and saw the sky will we all analyze it the same way?
