You are something the whole universe does, in the same way, a wave is something the whole ocean does. - Alan Watts
That doesn't really make sense to me, unless it refers to just all the people in the universe. The ocean is made up of waves. The universe isn't made up of people. I may be missing something here.
Layman's terms, you and the universe are one and the same. Most people view themselves as someone in the universe instead of being one with the universe.
I am not one with the universe. I have thought. A whole universe exists inside me and more.
Either you need to learn how to use commas, or the person you quoted does. I had to read it 6 times before it made sense.
Thought provoking input.
Dude, relax. I'm letting the poll poster know about an issue with their poll's readability. It wasn't intended to be a part of the discussion.
An individual drop of water to the wave is nothing, but as a whole, the wave is powerful. Same with people. An individual is not so powerful but the group of billions is.
If every man, woman, and child were a drop of water, we'd barely fill up a standard, backyard swimming pool.
(That's 10 drops per mL= ~3000 gallons/billion. 7+ billion people. 20000-30000 gallons in a standard swimming pool.)
