"There are many more ideas and mental images in our memory than there are stars in the sky or drops of water in the ocean ... " - Saint Lawrence of Brindisi
Wow. More ideas than "stars in the sky"? More images than "drops of water in the ocean"? Unfathomable. Incomprehensible. Indescribable. According to a Google search, there are 100 BILLION stars in our galaxy, and at least 7 SEPTILLION (that's 7 followed by 24 zeros!) drops of water in the Atlantic Ocean. Each of our memories holds much more than that. How can we possibly understand that?
Our memories take in so much, process so much, retain so much, catalogue so much. Yet sometimes we are just left speechless and in awe when we consider the magnitude of this concept.
To continue the words of Saint Lawrence, "The mind is truly a voice and work of God!"
"Looking at little life moments with a spiritual eye."
