    This page has some nice graphics showing relative sizes. I think it shows your point nicely:

    Stars are BIG

    Solar flares increase activity in the pineal gland. The pineal gland regulates melatonin but also possibly creates DMT, a natural neurotransmitter in the brain. 2012 marks the beginning of a new sun phase, the one with the most flare activity of all. So Im thinking, world wide dmt trip on Dec 21st?
