"We live in a universe devoted to the creation, and eradication, of awareness...universe's need to make and unmake all that is possible."(21.266) Throughout the book, Hazel has been very aware of the universe. She believes in the universe more than a god. To her, the universe wants to be heard, so it pulls crazy stunts, like the death of a loved one for the people to become aware of it.

The heavens, pt. 2: various forms of nebulae
First Atlas of the Moon Before the revolutionary, sun-centered ideas of Copernicus, the traditional geocentric or earth-centered universe was usually depicted by concentric circles. In this popular German work on natural history, medicine, and science, Konrad von Megenberg (1309-1374) depicted the universe in a most unusual but effective manner. The seven known planets are contained within straight horizontal bands which separate the Earth below from Heaven, populated by the saints, above.
