Images of brain neurons and synapses look eerily similar to images of space and galaxies, making you wonder: what if "space" is the brain or cells of some other giant creature (or maybe God) and we are a tiny part of it, and what if that creature is just a tiny part of another, larger creature, and what if, within ourselves, we are each a "universe" to other things, amirite?

If I remember correctly, they go around randomly in a cloud because the negative e- are attracted to the protons in the nucleus, and then repelled by other e-, making them bounce back and forth.

We are the universe...Did you know that every atom in your body came from the inside of a star that has died so you can live? Think about it, all the known elements were formed inside the furnace of stars.

Also during a psychedelic experience, my boyfriend was looking at the night sky and saw the stars form into the shape of a brain. He then closed his eyes and re-opened them and saw the whole universe- and each galaxy was in the shape of a brain. So its really funny you mentioned that. I also really hope you watch those vids, You seem open minded enough to handle them-as your thoughts are very similar to their content.

I'm pretty sure there was something like this on amirite once, and someone in the comments said how it's disproven because electrons kind of bounce around in an atom and planets in a solar system are in actual orbits. Still, it's mindblowing to think about.

What happens when a person dies if this were true? Would everyone in the universe thing die like a real 2012/end of the world situation? Or maybe they would just continue living on a decomposing body with changes in climate slowly bringing it to destruction?

I've thought of this too. The way I imagined it, time doesn't necessarily work the same in each "universe." So, say, Person/Universe A could take one step, and for the universe within, that could be millions or billions of years. That still doesn't address the original question, but maybe by the time Person/Universe A dies, the universe within and universes within those universes, and so on, will have been in existence for so many trillions+ years that they will have become dead galaxies.
