the invisible ballet

As we go about our day, we likely perceive the world around us as constant and still – a fixed stage where we are the star player. The buildings, roads, and backdrops to our life all seem unmoving and permanent. But what we cannot perceive with our limited senses is the intense choreography of movement and change happening all around us at every second. A dizzying, unseen kinetics occurring both in the vastness of the universe and within the smallest microscopic dimensions. On the grandest scale, the planet we call home is whirling around the sun at 67,000 miles per hour. And our entire solar system is orbiting around the center of the Milky Way galaxy at over 500,000 miles per hour. All the while, the galaxies themselves are hurtling through the ever-expanding universe in an elaborate ballet of motion. Zoom down to the tiny realm of atoms, and even the seemingly solid objects in our mundane world are vibrating with incredible intensity as their building blocks in constant motion.

The nuclei of every atom we’re made of are being perpetually pelted by other subatomic particles and held together by the strong nuclear force to create the illusion of tangibility. Even the air we breathe is an anarchic molecular frenzy, with billions of gaseous atoms bouncing off each other and the surrounding surfaces in an endless kinetic flurry. All of this frenzied activity and perfectly choreographed, intersecting movement is happening all around us constantly, yet we cannot directly perceive any of it with our limited senses. It’s taking place in higher and lower dimensions beyond our range of perception. This unseen cosmic choreography is one glimpse of astonishing finely-tuned design and planning that points to the brilliance of the Almighty orchestrating it all. Each intricate movement happening in perfect coordination and timing to allow for the fleeting materiality we call the world. As we go about our day, no longer be deceived by what we cannot see with our physical eyes. There is an entire expansive reality unfolding in the hidden divine choreographies all around us, from the subatomic to the intergalactic. Through deep contemplation, we can appreciate this unseen artistry of what transcends our sensory limitations.
