As Above, So Below | Microcosm and Macrocosm

Photo: side by side, A Brain Cell vs. the Cosmos. Physicists find that the structure of a brain cell resembles amazingly to the simulated picture of the entire universe.

Left. Brain Cell. Mark Miller, a doctoral student at Brandeis University is researching how particular types of neurons in the brain are connected to one another. The image shows three neuron cells of mouse's brain and their connections.

Right. The Universe. An international group of astrophysics used a computer simulation last year to recreate how the universe grew and evolved. The simulation image is a snapshot of the present universe that features a large cluster of galaxies (bright yellow) surrounded by thousands of stars, galaxies and dark matter.

"As above, so below"
- Hermes Trismegistus, The Emerald Tablet

"Soon will We show them our Signs in the furthest horizons,
and in their own souls, until it becomes manifest
to them that this is the Truth.
Is it not enough that thy Lord is witness over all things?" - The Quran 41:53

"Have they not then observed the heavens above them,
how We have constructed it and beautified it,
and how there are no rifts therein?..." - The Quran 50:6
