If we humans are looking at molecules and atoms through the optics of a microscope. Ever thought of how we might be molecules as well? VY Canis Majoris is the largest star known so far, and our sun is just a spec (almost invisible) in comparison. It’s quite possible that it’s 2000+ times the diameter of our sun, and if there’s life out there on a planet that revolves around Canis then our solar system would be an atom as our sun would be the nucleus. Now what about Earth? Oh yeah, we’re even smaller than an atom.
We’re in a molecular world.
