**First Lesson in Thinking**Synthesis vs. Analysis Issue**Synthesize? or Analyze?**ZOOM From MICRO To MACRO-COSMOS and then back .**This is a trip at high speed, jumping distances by factor of**10. Start with 100 equivalent to 1 meter, and increasing sizes by factor of 10s ,or 101 (10 meters), 102 (10x10 = 100 meters, 103 (10x10x10 = 1.000 meters), 104 (10x10x10x10 = 10.000 meters), so on, until the limit of our inmagination in direction to the macrocosmos. Later let’s return, a little faster, up to the point where we started and continue our trip in the opposite direction reducing distances of travel by factors of 10 into the microcosmos. Observe the constancy of the laws of the universe and think about how much the human race still needs to learn...**100**1 meter Distance to a bunch of leaves, in the garden**101m**10 meters Start our trip upwards .... We could see the foliage.**102m**100 meters At this distance we can see the limits of the forest and the edifications**103m**1 km We will pass from meters to kilometers.. Now it is possible to jump with a parachute ...**104m**10 km The city could be observed but we really can not see the houses**105m**1000 km At this height, the state of Flórida - USA, can be seen..**106m**10,000 km Typical sight from a satellite**107m**100,000 km The north hemisphere of Earth, and part of South America**108m**1 million km The Earth starts looking small...**109m**1 Gigameter The Earth and the Moon’s órbit in white....**1010m**10 Gigameters Part of the Earth’s Orbit in blue**1011m**100 Gigameters Órbits of: Venus and Earth...**1012m**1 Terameters 1 trillion meters Órbits of: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars and Júpiter.**1013m**10 Terameters At this height of our trip, we could observe the Solar System and the orbits of the planets**1014m**100 Terameters The Solar System starts looking small...**1015m**1 Petameter 1 Quadrillion meters The Sun now is a small star in the middle of thousands of stars...**1016m**1 light-year At one light-year the little Sun star is very small**1017m**10 light-years Here we will see nothing in the infinity....**1018m**100 light-years 1 quintiillion meters “Nothing” Only stars and Nebulae...**1019m**1,000 light-years At this distance we started travelling the Via-Láctea (Milky Way), our galaxy.**1020m**10,000 light-years We continued our travel inside the Via-Láctea.**1021m**100,000 light-years We started reaching the periphery of the Via-Láctea**1022m**1 millión light-years At this tremendous distance we could see all the Via-Láctea & other galáxies too...**1023m - 10 million light-years**From this distance, all the galaxies look small with inmense empty spaces in between.The same laws are ruling in all bodies of the Universe. We could continue traveling upwards with our imagination, but now we will return home quickly**104m**Questions that come to our minds ... Who are we? Where are we going? From where did we come from?**103m**Or... What do we represent in the Universe?**102m**In this trip “upwards” we went to the power 23 of 10**101m**Now we are going to dig inside of the matter in an inverse trip...
