The First Peripatetic Walk

Phil-H1

Our peripatetic walk today consisted of conversations regarding the complexities of being so insignificant in the vastness of existence while having a major impact on those around us and the world we live in. We made the comparison that even the slight change of a chromosome will alter and entire genetic makeup. We came to the conclusion that we are small, our impacts are gigantic, but in the grand scheme of things even our impression in the universe is minute. The final consensus we arrived at was that no matter how big or how small the effect we have in this existence it is given meaning by the eyes of the beholder. Your perspective on something is what defines its importance. The universe may not be concerned with our small plant or the star we orbit but our earth cannot exist without the sun we share our solar system with.
