I have been re-reading a book recently and now I have got to the part where usually I skip it as not interesting, but while reading this part of the book this time, something stood out that I hadn’t really noticed before. It was the measurements, but not just that but the precise measurements. I did woodwork at school and loved it, I made some wonderful things and even designed my own little corner table. I’m rubbish at maths and dyslexic, but I had a fantastic Teacher who helped me every step of the way, even when things seemed hopeless, he was able to put it right, he always saved the day.
The measurements that I’d read in this book, seemed almost pointless to me and over the top, but to the Creator, Designer, Architect, he sees the whole picture and know exactly how he wants it to look like, as all of it, is in his head. He sees the bigger picture from start to finish.
As I’m not an engineer these measurements, would be alien to me, and unobtainable, even for my level of woodwork.
So, here are some of the measurements I read in the book, all in feet and inches, “Eight and three quarters, twenty two and three quarters, forty three and three quarters, thirty one and a half, five and a quarter, forty three and a quarter, eighty seven and a half,” To mention but a few, I’d just round them all off to a whole round number. But would that be cheating or cutting corners, or is that being creative?
I mean, nineteen and a quarter, what’s that all about? It’s about precision or perfection.
If the sun was too close to the Earth we would die, if it was too far away, we would die. If the stars fell out the sky, say nineteen of them today, we would die. It is all a marvel. How we have Summer, Winter, Autumn, Spring and always in the correct order and not how I’ve written it amazing. I wouldn’t be able to do anything in this paragraph and I definitely know You couldn’t either, for no Man is able to design or create or make anything of that magnitude, or even on a tiny scale.
There is a wonderful video on YouTube, well there are many of them, that shows Earth big then, other planets, bigger than Earth, and then as we look, other planets appears and dwarfs little Earth, this carry’s on with fourteen mega, massive planets, then it shows on top of the largest known planet/star called VY Canis Majoris (Red Hypergiant), it shows an arrow above it, and nothing else and the words Earth, that’s how tiny we are in the vast universe, almost a nothing planet. Yet here on Earth mankind is unable to get along.
But going back to the title of this piece, Precision how amazing is D.N.A. years ago many got away with murder, and the innocent at sometimes went to the gallows. With SO many of us here on Earth, it’s good to know that despite many wanting to be alike with fashion, music and fads, our D.N.A. shows we are all unique, a one off. And speaking of unique, our fingerprints, even twins don’t have the same.
And something wonderful I’ve observed is our cats, they love boxes and balls. Put a box down and one of my four cats will sit in it and go to sleep and a ball they just can’t resist. And in recent years we have all seen the big cats on telly too loving a box and a ball. It’s in their D.N.A.
We, the cats and the planets they are all made precise, perfect by design, precision.
