Laneakia: The Supercluster we call home.

"Behold a universe so immense that I am lost in it. I no longer know where I am. I am just nothing at all. Our world is terrifying in its insignificance."

- Fontenelle, 1686


I wonder if Fontenelle truly felt insignificanf or if he was actually more afraid of the enormity of his own being.
