You See For A Long Time......

a: Geology ~
b: astronomy

What: "You see, geology is like astronomy. It lets you see the Big Picture. The picture in which our petty lives are swallowed whole by monstrous insignificance. Where we are forced to look a billion years or more before to see the continents adrift and crawly things emerge upon the land. Or out onto a hundred billion galaxies with each a hundred billion stars. I like that"
