Two factors determine what constitutes a lifetime supply of anything:
1. how much you’ve got
2. how long you’ve got to live
Of course there are no other things that are not part of the universe. So there is not “the universe and other things”; there’s the universe and that’s it. There’s nothing else to talk about. Anything we discuss is part of the universe, and a very small part at that. For instance, the solar eclipse…
The solar eclipse looks like a big deal from here. But universally speaking, it’s not a notable event. There are stars forming, solar systems developing, galaxies exploding onto and off the scene. Our solar eclipse is a tiny footnote in the intergalactic news of the day. So as the moon comes moseying in front of the sun, try to keep things in perspective.
