A Brain Cell of the Universe

News Report (from The New York Times): One is only micrometers wide. The other is billions of light years across. One shows neurons in a mouse brain. The other is a simulated image of the universe. Together they suggest the surprisingly similar patters found in vastly different natural phenomena.


On the left: Three neuron cells (two red and one yellow) and their connections.

On the right: The Universe, with a large cluster of galaxies (bright yellow), surrounded by thousands of stars, galaxies, and black matter.


  1. During a meditation once, I heard a voice which I immediately knew to be God, say this is what I look like. The image I saw was that of the picture above (universe, or brains cells).

  2. i beleive that you are telling the truth. in some forms of deep meditation you are able to see inside of yourself and realize the true meaning of life.

  3. It is deep in our natures to see patterns; most times patterns aid our understanding of the external world, but at other times our hubris sees patterns and connections where none exist.

  4. A. G., if you’re hearing disembodied voices, you should get your head checked out. It’s a symptom of any number of schizo disorders.
