Silence=peace? Not always. The calm before the storm isn’t really peaceful.

Of course I have been considering many different wordings for the situation in the picture. The universe is never silent. With the right ears we can hear the thundering sound of the physical violence that has been going on for ~13.800.000.000 years. Around the earth a ring of noise by satellites adds to the cacophony. Nothing peaceful in space.

But if lucky we only hear our own blood streaming through our veins. Proof of silence around us.
