It was weird the first time I saw the word Universe capitalized, as though it were some sentient entity.
The capital U Universe became for me the substitute for the God of the Christian Bible. I came to recognize that the bible story seemed just too small in the scheme of things and the vastness of the Universe became what made the most sense to me.
From rejecting the concept at first, I eventually accepted, nay embraced gladly, the idea that the Universe is making things happen.
I love the idea of the mystery of the Universe, the unending nature of it, the Universe as ultimate creator, conductor, and catalyst for change.
