"The Microscope and Telescope"
"Seeing with the stronger eye,
makes a little picture big,
And this could go on for evermore,
To infinitas - I could believe"
(Its something I have regularly thought about, however daft it may seem!)
"If someone spent a full life time studying in depth,
One cubic metre of earth,
then that time in itself,
would never be long enough.
By then a new and more powerful
electron microscope will have been invented,
which would allow that study to take up a further lifetime,
and for that study to go on and on and on.....
And this so proves the case,
We can only ever begin to scratch the surface"
