I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Astronomy Tuesday



A closeup of the central region of nebula IC 410. Those “tadpoles” (and surprisingly, they do actually resemble tadpoles) on the right side are about 10 light years long, just for a bit of astronomical perspective.

I woke abruptly on Sunday morning in one of those strange fugue states where I had no idea where -- or who -- I was. I was listening to the birds sing and staring at my hand, and I thought, There are other universes and other worlds, but this is the only one I'll ever know.

Then my self came trickling back into my body and I remembered that I was Kathleen, at home in my apartment in New York, and I got up to pee and make coffee.

If this is indeed the only universe I'll ever know -- and odds are that's the case -- at least it's a good one.
