If the universe is only a perception of human souls, and centered until now on earthly experience, why is the universe so immense?  Our experience of duality occurs 99.99+% on the earth.  Why is there this seemingly infinite array of stars and galaxies?

Consciousness has been very adamant that we humans focus on, and continuously live through, all manners of duality.  Therefore, Consciousness has made our “reality” very, very convincing.  The more immense and complicated it appears, the less important we appear and the less we would expect the universe to be only a perception created by our souls.  This moors us deeply in this perception, continuously experiencing the duality that we committed to experiencing.
