It kind of reminds me of the way brain tissue looks... And the "close-ups" somewhat resemble the appearance of neurons... To me at least... Yep, looks just like an electron micrograph of neurons, exactly. Maybe we are part of God's brain.

Nice! I also like this picture. Makes me feel nice and insignificant. And here's a link to the full resolution (109.99MB) Hubble Ultra Deep Field Image and the Wiki page for those unfamiliar with the image. from the bottom of the thing in the first link it says the imge we are receiving from that is as old as when we think the big bang happened well there goes another peice of junk science came up with

Well... don't know so much if its a god (or The God) or not... can't say.. but perhaps all of our activities and motions are just the thought processes of a larger (really, really, really, really much larger) creature... : It may need to seek professional help....

That was the first thing that entered my mind, too, that and wondering if I could superimpose a picture of Mighty Mouse in there somewhere! LOL! Let there be light! I have 101, actually more, of the many passages on Light, at my other site. it's God's neurons, nuff said That's a cool thought!

*If some choose to view God as the creator of the universe that's their personal opinion. However, there are various other forums for religious discussion. Let's all please focus on the scientific aspects of the discussion in these forums. Thank you.* And just out of curiosity, why should we be told what to focus on in a discussion? No malice, just an honest question.

And just out of curiosity, why should we be told what to focus on in a discussion? No malice, just an honest question. Because that is the focus of the forum - Board Index Science and Space Astronomy and Astrophysics Nibs

And just out of curiosity, why should we be told what to focus on in a discussion? No malice, just an honest question. Well, in the science forums one discusses 'science'. There are other forums for the discussion of religious beliefs. So, those who wish to focus on religious aspects need to take the discussion to the appropriate forum. You can discuss anything (within the rules) but you may be asked to place such discussion in the proper location. I hope this clears things up.

I was kind of expecting the subject of a divine being coming up in the discussion as I posted my comment about brain cells and neurons... and I almost didn't because of it... I am a (reasonably) religious guy (meaning I believe in a diety), but I do feel the discussion could probably best remain within the realm of the physical/scientific universe... I appologize to you all if my comment led this thread into other - perhaps less compatible - directions... (but I still think it looks like some dudes brain!)
