Luckily, our brains are too small to process the scale here. Otherwise I might feel a bit humbled.

you are really stupid, aren't you?

No. We literally can't comprehend the scale. It does not compute.

yeah... you are stupid. or maybe just ignorant. incalculable does not mean uncomprehendable. if you can understand the concept of infinity, you can understand most of the universe.

...but it is calculable. Humans just lose comprehension over numbers with extreme magnitudes.

Obviously we can understand it conceptually, but we can't visualize it. The size of the solar system and the bodies in it is an abstract idea. We can look at the numbers, we can see the comparisons, but that isn't the same as seeing an accurate picture of how it is in reality.

again, you are wrong. there are simulations, telescopes, probes. we have a very good idea of how everything in the universe works together. it's not perfect, but that's because we haven't had enough time yet. give it about 20 years. we have the capacity, we just lack the technology to make it happen.

Not the same at all. I don't mean "we don't know how big stuff is," I mean we can't comprehend it. Try visualizing yourself next to the sun.

I can do that. It is very simple if you have the necessary mental faculties. I have no problem with envisioning any part of the physical universe. This includes non-visual particles and the Higgs field. All you need is the knowledge. I do not have a problem if you say that YOU cannot understand these things, but we as a species are capable of comprehending anything.

Sorry, you're wrong. We've gotten to the point in the debate where whatever we say is a direct contradiction of what the other says, so that's all I got.
