Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe. – Albert Einstein
Two things in the world are infinite; the one among them is the universe. The universe is infinite and you can no way go beyond it. You might think as if you have had an experience of exploring it all, but then again, you will get to realize that there’s a lot more for you that are still left.
You need to understand that there is no end of exploring the universe, and you may just keep going on.
Too often, we think that it’s just the end, while we forget to realize that no matter how much distance you have covered so far, you would still be left with some more miles to decipher.
The universe is so gigantic, and there is so much more to learn that you can never do it enough! There’s no end, and you can just go on and on.
On the other hand, Albert Einstein says that human stupidity is another infinite thing.
We would always end up messing the things around us. No matter how many degrees we hold, at times, we react in a stupid way, and that’s when this greatest scientist of all times says that he can realize it from his own self that he is stupid enough, but he does not know about the universe much.
He says that his stupidity is infinite and that’s what he relates with human stupidity in general.
He goes on saying that he is not aware about the infiniteness of the universe though! This could be metaphorically related with the fact that there is no ending to gaining knowledge. You can just keep on learning. All you need is to have a bit of patience and the rest of the things shall fall in their respective places all by themselves.
