The widest diameter (from one side to the other) of the Earth is "said" to be around 7,917.5 miles (this number often changes).
It is "said" that light travels in the vacuum of space at 186,282 miles per second.
x 60 seconds = 11,176,920 miles per minutes
x 60 minutes = 670,615,200 miles per hour
x 24 hours = 16,094,764,800 miles per day
x 365 days = 5,875,589,152,000 miles per year (1 light year).
In one year, light might travel more 5.8755 trillion miles.
In one second, light would travel more than 23.5 times the diameter of the Earth.
Earth is within what is named the Milky Way Galaxy, which is a "spiral galaxy".
The nearest spiral galaxy to the Milky Way is Andromeda, mentioned to be at nearly "2.5 million light years from earth".
This is that if light were to travel freely through space for the length of our year on Earth, it would take 2.5 million years for light to reach the Andromeda Galaxy.
The "observable universe" from earth's perspective is estimated with a diameter of around "93 billion light-years".
Return to Earth at 7,917.5 miles diameter.
The Kármán line is mentioned to be a boundary noting where Earth's atmosphere is ending and space is beginning.
This border is 62 miles above Earth's sea level. Compare this to the diameter of Earth at 7,917 miles.
Mount Everest is noted at 29,029 feet elevation. There are 5,280 feet in one mile, marking Mount Everest at just under 5.5 miles (5.4979). Compare this to the Kármán line at 62 miles.
If humans, all with a height of 5 feet 6 inches (66 inches), were standing feet on head, it would take 59,520 humans to reach the Karman line.
It is mentioned that the average height of an ant is 1mm. There are 304.8mm in one foot.
1mm (1 ant) x 59,520 ants stacked head and foot would amount to 195.27559 feet (200 feet).
A human standing at the edge of the Karman line, and looking down to see a human on the Earth, would be similar to being an ant at the top of 200 feet, staring down to see the bottom ant.
Now, see an ant and all of it's parts.
See now, the leg of an ant. and, then, a portion of the leg of the ant.
There are said to be 1,000 micrometers in one millimeter.
1,000 nanometers in one micrometer.
1,000 picometers in one nanometer.
1,000 femtometers in one picometer.
1,000 atometers in one femtometer.
Until there is no word for measurement but are numbers to represent mathematical size.
The planck is a theory, that if there were an end to quantum size, it would be called the planck.
The seeming material reality is quantum empty. and is eternal both micro and macro.
Consciousness pervades this all, and is branched out via a veinous system, which can be seen in flesh, in nature and in elecricity.
