From The Fabric of the Cosmos: Space, Time, and the Texture of Reality, a book by the popular string theorist Brian Greene:
According to inflation, the more than 100 billion galaxies, sparkling throughout space like heavenly diamonds, are nothing but quantum mechanics writ large across the sky. To me, this realization is one of the greatest wonders of the modern scientific age.
What he means is that the uncertainties of the quantum realm were expanded, stretched out into the clumpy structures of galaxies. One can think of animal (our) death in this way. Just like quantum jitters (or fluctuations) imprinted the expanding universe, apoptosis (programmed cell death) imprinted the big world of large life. We are, after all, programmed to die.
