the Sun. It seems impossibly big. But in the great scheme of things, it’s a pinprick,
in the (grand) scheme of things
In the scheme of things, having lots of money isn’t as important as having friends.
When people talk about the scheme of things or the grand scheme of things , they are referring to the way that everything in the world seems to be organized.
تا جایی که من از متنی که ارجاع داده بودید متوجه شدم، مشاهده ی زمین بودو کوه ها و عظمت اونها…ولی وقتی خورشید رو می بیننه و اونو در مقایسه با زمین درنظر می گیره که یک میلیون برابر زمینه، و باز کهکشان راه شیری و …

What does “the grand scheme of things” mean? What are the origins of this idiom?
"In the grand scheme of things" is an idiom. It means that when you put things in perspective, taking everything into account, sometimes what has previously been considered significant isn’t quite significant.
It’s a variation on “in the scheme of things”, meaning in the light of how things – all things – generally work. In the religious sense, the scheme is seen as God’s scheme, his comprehensive plan for everything. Otherwise it’s just an overview of the over-all situation. In other words, it’s the big picture.
In the scheme of things, for example, humans are insignificant. Here, humans are being discussed with respect to all species and in terms of the cosmos as a whole. After all, we are just a small part of what’s going on with Mother Nature on Earth. Indeed, the Earth itself is tiny in the scheme of things, in that it’s a small piece of rock hurtling in the vast solar system, which itself is in fact a tiny system in a galaxy among innumerable other galaxies in the universe.
There are other variations on “in the scheme of things” including “in the greater scheme of things”, “in the over-all scheme of things” , and of course, “in the grand scheme of things”.
