Hope this is best place for this topic, if not go ahead and move it. Okay: why is the universe so incredibly vast and what is going on within it? I mean we need some Christian Science Fiction buffs to flesh this one out. Is the vast cosmos kinda like the mind or brain of God in a way, I mean this seriously and reverently. Is it like His engine, and what is it headed toward? Why did it have to be so vast? C.S. Lewis offers this: we on planet Earth are so far from inhabited planets because we are quarantined, meaning kept apart due to our contagious sin condition, keeps us from infecting other entities. Interesting theory. I know, this topic will require some real digging into Bible. But you know Psalms 19 calls the Sun a living entity, and not so sure it's just a figure of speech.
