The cosmos of a grain of dust

Encyclopedias always refer to looking upwards and wide wards to see the cosmos, and to imagine how small we are as humans. The take on this macro shot of a very small grain of dust on a window, illuminated by the power of the sun, is that no matter how big or small we are, there will always be an entire cosmos both bigger and smaller than what our eyes can see.
