Consider that you can see less than 1% of the electromagnetic spectrum and hear less than 1% of the acoustic spectrum. As you read this, you are traveling at 220 km/sec across the galaxy. 90% of the cells in your body carry their own microbial DNA and are not “you.” The atoms in your body are 99.9999999999999999% empty space and none of them are the ones you were born with, but they all originated in the belly of a star. Human beings have 46 chromosomes, 2 less than the common potato.
The existence of the rainbow depends on the conical photoreceptors in your eyes; to animals without cones, the rainbow does not exist. So you don’t just look at a rainbow, you create it. This is pretty amazing, especially considering that all the beautiful colors you see represent less than 1% of the electromagnetic spectrum.

#what? #huh? #what? what? what? what? #i am freaking out over here right now. #i feel like i got the wind knocked out of me. #we see 1% of the electromagnetic spectrum???? i just typed it out and tears came to my eyes! #i feel like i knew this in my heart in some deep subconcious way and then i saw it written out and it has destroyed. me. #i hope that when we die #we get to be turned into something #that can see the rest of the colors #and then we just float around like that for the rest of ever #just trying to come up with names for all the new things our ghost eyes can see#jesus christ.
