I've never been a fan of putting one's own name on their avatar (although admittedly I did so when I first joined) for the reason that whenever you look at the avatar, you name is going to be right next to it anyway. A little redundant imo.
Elite, this level of introspection was unexpected (but appreciated).
Maybe by examining the infinitesimally small things in relation to our own perception, we can greater understand our own existence in relationship to the universe. Perhaps the key to understanding is smaller than we think.
But what do I know, I'm usually more focused on the practical than the philosophical.
