In my opinion there is something really astonishing in looking at a dark night sky: proportions.
For instance, this area is huge. Insanely huge. As you'll see in other pictures I'll post later of the Grand Combin hanging glaciers there are still 1,700 meters in altitude from where I took this photo till to the summit... the Corbassière glacier has an average width of slightly more than 1 km and its covering an area of 17.4 km²... nevertheless all this looks ridiculously small if compared to the immensity of the cosmos!
But, what really means cosmos... what is it?
We know it's an infinitely violent place, paradoxically of indescribable beauty...
We are accustomed of using what we know as a sort of yardstick for measuring the unknown... well, very humbly I think that there are no "solutions", no "answers", in this case, only temporary interpretations leading to other temporary interpretations... perhaps the constant search is the goal... and that's fine
as I find the unknown far more interesting.
