Our Emerging Young Professional’s entry is the ‘Cosmic Continuum’ light tunnel.

“We occupy a moment in time along the cosmic continuum, yet our actions project into the infinite vastness of space in observable and ephemeral ways.”

(con·tin·u·um) noun : A coherent whole characterized as a collection, sequence, or progression of values or elements varying by minute degrees.

“Our planet, Earth, is merely a blip in the vast expanse of the cosmos; how are we to make sense of the sheer magnitude of the planets, stars, galaxies, and endless space beyond? This luminous encapsulation of the grand chaos of the universe transports the human experience to its fiery core, synaptic space. It is here that the explosive nature of the universe is most glorious. Compulsive actions create reactions and ignite a continuous stream of impulses that transcend space and time. How similar are the ripples of our actions as they permeate through our intentions and into the great sea of consequence? Each strand of events is united by the thread of time and the sequence of each moment becomes collaged into a universal whole… a Cosmic Continuum.”
