  • If you were to Zoom in phase-out,

  • move in focus on this Human whose cells magnify

  • as you fly through them, and see

  • Atoms, looming but you keep shooting past

  • protons, bosons, quarks til even a part of a particles too big Then

  • BOOM an end to the intrusion As you hit the resolution of the

  • universe the strands of its fabric the tiniest fragment the planck length,

  • past that, Gravity becomes fallacy, try contrasting that with the

  • galaxies try to grasp the huge magnitude of the universe it's unimaginable.

  • But let's try anyway.

  • If that insane length was one dollar bill

  • Then to reach the wavelength of the smallest particles

  • Quarks, that are so fundamental

  • they don't have an inherent size would be the current price you'd gain if you

  • sold Mount Everest made out of gold.

  • That is insane.

  • if you applied the Midas touch to my mind it'd be quite enough to buy a car to drive

  • And the gluons and 3 quarks combined make a large hadron those guys collide;

  • a proton and to magnify to that size would turn that Midas mountain

  • into a diamond my mind made of that could buy you an island

  • and next we ramp up, from quarks and protons to atoms,

  • atoms the fractions of matter the ones that that grant us our mass, and

  • if that quark was counted every time you take a

  • single breath you'd respire Midas mountains then

  • until your death

  • and if that life was compressed into one lock of hair then as we

  • climb / up the rest of these atomic stairs then we'd pass

  • DNA when we get to my red streak and the size of our cells

  • we equate to every hair on my head...

  • Sometimes you make me feel so small Can't comprehend your size

  • Yet I'm a giant in your eyes

  • If we took my head of hair that a cell represents

  • lifetimes of Midas Everest breaths and then you would stretch it out to the skyline,

  • again and again

  • you'd find circle round the earth 10 times before you meet me... and you.

  • Right here the reach of a human, a meter or two and if we were to choose

  • one song to represent those horizons, an MP3 on our

  • device then to reach the size of the earth compared to like our size

  • that's a terabyte hard drive filled with our files

  • it seems immense And if we compress that collection to one

  • word

  • to represent our world, then scaling coefficients from the planet to the solar system

  • would let me re-read the whole of deathly hallows

  • awesome.

  • And then to travel between stars as we take to the skies

  • Would be 10 times every word you'll ever say in your life

  • And as an analogy of the expanse of galaxies up in space

  • 10 times the total of every word in every book ever made

  • And to move up to the scale of galaxy clusters would be every word said by everyone in Shanghai,

  • in London Berlin, Delhi, LA, Mumbai, Sao Paulo and Moscow

  • Jakarta, Karachi, Dubai, Telford, Tokyo and Stockholm

  • And then to galaxy superclusters in the large-scale structure

  • with filaments that feel inadequately described as humungous

  • since if we stay with the scale of Earth as a word that equates

  • to all the words everyone alive today will ever say

  • finally we reach the biggest physical thing we can confirm

  • The indescribable size of the observable universe which would be more than every word that every

  • person ever has said Every word that was ever written and every

  • word that was ever read

  • Sometimes you make me feel so small Can't comprehend your size

  • Yet I'm a giant in your eyes. I can't control the scope

  • But I'm not losing hope

  • To summarise Every word that every person has ever said

  • in their lives where each word implies enough MP3s to fill

  • a terabyte hard drive Where each song is 10 times the number drives

  • to the horizon that it'd take to ride around the world each

  • time you set eyes on one

  • where each horizon is a head of hairs and every hair there is the length of a lifetime

  • and each breath in that life is the price of mount everest made entirely by midas

  • and that finally describes it, and it's increasing in size

  • So each time you listen to this song again it'll be even more difficult to comprehend.

If you were to Zoom in phase-out,
