Ferris Bueller and the Meaning of Life

Watch Ferris Bueller's Day Off.  It's on Netflix.

Intuition, fear, confrontation, risk, life.  Stasis and dynamism.  Staying on the beaten path or going on an adventure. It's an exposition on the human mind.

The three high school kids that ditch represent parts of the psyche?  Ferris who acts on intuition and thinks the rules don't apply to him is the sub-conscious, the Generator that makes it all happen.  Events work around him.  Cameron the worry wart, the conscious mind who is struggling with all that, who is fearful of the consequences though it's all so-far-so-good.

Or all that is in my own mind and I just now perceive it.  Now that I'm older and wiser.

Another thought: Galaxies are people.  There's a human being at the center of each one.  The formation of galaxies and also how they form super-structures (strands, clusters, super-clusters) is a mirror of how humans form up.
