Looking into the Past

in the present.

We do it everyday. It just goes unnoticed.

So here’s the scoop. When you look at the stars, the light that has reached your eyes is star light from the past. How? Light takes time to travel and that star is very far away. It is a glimmer of the past of the heavens before us.

Even in everyday life, the light that bounces off of an object takes a fraction of a second to hit our eyes and register as that object. In its essence it is the same thing as looking at the stars of the past.

Just an interesting observation that I’m sure someone else has made a notion of.
