I read somewhere that the two galaxies could intersect and morph without any astral bodies actually colliding with each other.

Gives you a humbling perspective on the vastness of the space between all this matter.

It is very difficult for the human mind to grasp the vastness of space.
A million seconds is almost 12 days. A billion seconds is 31.7 years. Distances in space are many orders of magnitude greater than that.
