The oceans are infinitely large when compared to a human being wading in the waves along the shoreline.
Similarly, Earth is tiny when compared to its nearest star – The Sun.
We experience all but one of the billions and billions of stars as tiny points of light. Our sense of them is limited to what our eyes can see.
Humanity is so close to its star that it is awash in a flood of radiation which cannot help but be sensed as daylight, warmth and life-giving energy. Venturing any deeper into this hostile environment will shrivel and swallow any creature.
We spend our lifetimes
carefully in the shallow waters of our Sun’s vast ocean of radiation.
