GLIMPSING THE UNIVERSE
(At the opening session of the National Academy of Science,
astronomers stated that the latest powerful telescope had disclos
ed the possible exstence of 1,000,000 universes instead of one.
New observation devices have disclosed a galaxy of spiral
nebulae, each an "island nebulae", distant more than 10,000 light
years from the earth and a light year approximates, six trillion
In other words the universe is disclosed as being ten times
greater in volume than previously believed and it is probable
that further improved observation devices will disclose it as many
times greater illimitable.
The milky way, which has been considered as our special
universe, is comprised of three billion stars of which our sun is
the nearest one. It takes light about 300,000 years to cross from
one side to the other and light travels 180,000 miles a second.
And our own world is not of sufficient magnitude or importance
to count as one of the three billion stars.
The mind cannot comprehend the infinite which does not
deter man from attempting to define it nor can the human
mind comprehend the universe, which is merely an expression
of the infinite. Even the inch rule measurements of our scien
tists, expressed in endless rows of ciphers, convey little informa
tion, for. we are of such limited capacity that we cannot conceive
Like a grain of sand upon the seashore is our own world in
the stars of the universe, and the more we glimpse the infinite,
the more it bewilders us. It assures us only of our relative unim
portance and insignificance in the unsolved and unsolvable riddle
of the universe. ' . '
l" Perhaps Pope was right when he wrote, "Presume not God
to scan-the proper study of mankind is man." At any rate we
haven't made any too rapid progress in our study of man and the
field is an ample one to occupy our energies.
Portland shipyards resist a government inquiry into their
profits. So do all profiteers. If there is nothing to conceal, why
the effort to conceal it? Why not much-rake the shipyards and
the millionaires they created? Everything else connected with
nthe war has been muck-raked to a frazzle.
