Okay, the universe may animate itself to me through contemplation, thought, imagination, critical thinking and through brute force and riches beyond my dreams.
But on the universal scale, big place, I am out of my league.
My high intelligence is very small in comparison to the innate intelligence that fashion’s the universe.
Try to cross the width and breadth of the universe: It is impossible at the moment and maybe for all time.
The entire wealth of humanity is dependent on the whim of the universe.
But most of us continue as if we are in charge, control and much much more.
Right or wrong on our scale is simply too small to effect nature, unless I choose to help, support and service the things that nature may find of some use.
