Awareness

Is there a single ingredient that holds our universe together? We look deeper and deeper into outer space, trying to find the edge, searching for the substance in which we are contained.

Peering inside, have we found anything smaller than a neutrino, electron, or Higgs boson particle?

I used to see a tree, a hummingbird, and a chair as separate things. I now understand they may be exactly the same. What about a grain of sand, an elephant, and the planet Jupiter? After all, isn’t everything simply a different arrangement of atoms? When I admire the purple flowers of the Jacaranda tree, I understand how it may not exist to a person who does not see it.

Perhaps it is our awareness of the universe that brings it to life. This awareness, I think, is the building block of the universe.
