It makes a very interesting and exciting study to assess the position of man in this universe. Viewed from the casual day to day perspective man is an insignificant entity in the universe and by all means he is a very weak, insecure and helpless creature, notwithstanding the boastful exhibition of the physical strength by some vis a vis persons of average physical and mental strength. But the ultimate unceremonious end of such boastful persons like Alexander, Hitler and Mussolini further confirms the feeble and puny existence of man in this universe.But all this relates only to the physical aspect of man.
Fortunately man is endowed with some faculties ( some call it God's gift and nobody knows to the satisfaction of all what,where, or who God is )of metaphysical aspect : soul, mind, memory, imagination,,consciousness,awareness, etc. that make man stand out as a unique favored creature. It is this man that we are interested in.
In physical terms a man is not more than a molecule, an atom or an organic cell of the whole universe. But when we consider this smallest part in terms of an integral and inseparable unit of the Infinity, an altogether different picture about the stature of man emerges.

of human mind and imagination.
( III ) Infinity defies all arithmetical calculations of addition, subtraction , division and
And above all:
A part of the Infinity is also INFINITE.
It is here that man acquires a stature that gives him the potential of INFINITE, and scope to transcend his tininess . Thus joined to his root man is Infinity/Divinity and separated he is an insignificant dead cell or atom of no consequence.
