How Much Does a Song Weigh?

My friend Brad Davis expanded my thought today. Thanks, Brad.

So, we live in an expanding universe. But what do we measure by? If one frog is the
only existence, who knows whether it grows or shrinks. The other day "scientists"
reported that it actually may be shrinking, that the universal constant is maybe wrong.
But how would you know?

Archimedes could find no place to stand, and could not move the world. Will we
measure the universe by the wind blowing through the vanity of our minds?

Isa 40:26 Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that
bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his
might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth.

2Co 10:12 For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with
some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and
comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.

When you divide any number into an infinite number of parts, how large is each part?
We can and must number our days and many things of creation. But what is the
dimension of thought; the depth of love; the weight of wisdom? Are these things not
real also.

Mic 6:11 Shall I count them pure with the wicked balances, and with the bag of
deceitful weights?

Isaiah 40: 12 Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out
heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and
weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance? 13 Who hath directed the
Spirit of the LORD, or being his counsellor hath taught him?

14 With whom took he counsel, and who instructed him, and taught him in the path of judgment, and taught him knowledge, and shewed to him the way of understanding? 15 Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: behold, he taketh up the isles as a very little thing.

16 And Lebanon is not sufficient to burn, nor the beasts thereof sufficient for a burnt offering. 17 All nations before him are as nothing; and they are counted to him less than nothing, and vanity.

Little ships must stay near the shore.
