Response to lecture: to be totally honest, i was not impressed with the talk. I thought that it was kind of boring and hard to connect with. I think that what he was saying did have a certain importance. I think it is essential to live well as he was saying, but i just think that he didn't tie it into teaching very well and a lot of what he was saying was hard for me to relate to teaching. I also thought that it was dull because he mainly just read off of his power point and it got to the point where it was thinking "I could've just read this presentation myself." Nothing against him, like i said, i think that a lot of what he was say does have importance i just was not able to connect with the lecture personally.
How big is BIG?
How big is BIG?
I really liked this story.
I think a few questions that it made me think of were
1. if the smallest thing in the whole world are electrons, protons, and neutrons are the smallest thing that we know of, and the biggest thing that we know of is a star, how many electrons, protons, and neutrons are in one star?
2. if we found the answer to that question, and we had an actual number we could figure out my next question which is, Since humans are right in the middle between the biggest and the smallest how many humans could we fit in a star? Would it be half of the number of electrons, protons, and neutrons that could fit in a star?
3. In the book, it says that humans are right in the middle of the biggest thing and the smallest thing. I wonder if that is true? It would seem as though we are much more near the small end of the spectrum when comparing to things like the sun and the stars.
