Science is awesome and the human eye is lame. That is until the human eye is given a microscope and the entire world explodes like taking a hit of LSD while looking through a kaleidoscope and blaring dubstep.
Check out these images pulled from Reddit of everyday objects magnified 400x, 500x, or 2000x and realize how monotonous the world we see really is.
1. Butterfly Egg
Also looks like a piece of delicious Na’vi fruit.
It’s like a rainbow in my mouth when I have my first cup of coffee in the AM.
Every tentacle is like an IV of caffeine happiness to my blood stream.
Enjoy this guy’s appearance in your nightmare tonight.

This definitely looks like a painting by some tweeker.
So colorful. And yet, whenever I dust, it just comes up as gray crap.
8. Fly Larva
I think it wants a hug.
9. Green Lacewing Larva
Also coming soon as a new Marvel superhero, ‘The Green Lacewing.’
10. Guitar String
Every rock song you’ve ever liked comes from this little corkscrew thing.
11. Hummingbird Tongue
Whoever thought it would be scientifically beneficial to have a magnified image of a hummingbird’s tongue, thank you for the terror.
Looks like the set of some Tim Burton film.
No wonder so many kids like to put it in their mouths! It’s candy!

Plaque and gingivitis never looked so cool.
Possibly also a still from the set of Honey I Shrunk the Kids.
19. Vodka Tonic
And here is that kaleidoscope, as promised.
20. Hydrothermal Worm
Luckily these things live thousands of miles in the depths of the ocean, so they won’t be facehugging you anytime soon.
