      What if each galaxy in the universe are just giant blood cells on that macro scale, and we are some kind of advanced cell actually made to explore other cells (like cancer cells infect or blood cells) when we launch rocket ships into space to “explore “ other celestial bodies (moon, mars.. etc) also following the mace scale, black holes are jus massive scrapes from the being that we are in. And we are just too small to realize or even comprehend the possibility. Think about it, when you cut your arm, we know it’s a cut, but if you were living on the bone on that scale, how would you explain that random opening in the skin (as we know it to) and the sun is just our lArge electron and were the proton circling it. Again, on that scale. Hmm? Really think about this and please do a video or something.

      Not sure you will see this as this video was posted quite a while ago but I'm wondering is it possible that something similar to this could have already happened perhaps with another field (not higgs) causing the physics of the universe to change letting all matter held in a single point to be released because the field that held it together became weaker thus kicking off the big bang and all this good old life stuff we having going on round here. Know that's quite alot of rambling but I think the idea is clear anyways if you get a chance let me know what you think.
