    "A cubic light year contains about 1E+48 cubic meters. So all of the matter in the universe would fit into about 1 billion cubic light years, or a cube that's approximately 1,000 light years on each side. That means that only about 0.0000000000000000000042 percent of the universe contains any matter. The universe is a pretty empty place!"--- https://science.howstuffworks.com/dictionary/astronomy-terms/question221.htm#:~:text=So all of the matter,the universe contains any matter.

    “And if the only thing you can do is show up, do it. Then do it again. And when it’s the last thing you want to do and the last place you want to go, go. Just go. You have no idea who you might be helping just by sitting there or who might help you.”
    ― Bill Clegg, Ninety Days: A Memoir of Recovery

    "Let me keep my distance, always, from those
    who think they have the answers.
    Let me keep company always with those who say
    “Look!” and laugh in astonishment,
    and bow their heads.”
    ~Mary Oliver
