Perspective of "worlds"

In this poem, the speaker ponders the irony in that a man who apparently
traveled very little (considering the true size of the world), and who,
though obviously educated, was not likely as smart as Sir Isaac Newton,
clearly saw the world as something small and easily conquered. Meanwhile, A
man (Newton) who focused his work on understanding science, being one of
the world’s most deep and vast topics for learning, someone who probably
comprehended more than most people dream to, saw what he did as such a
small and tiny piece of something much, much bigger. The irony in poem
“worlds” leaves the reader with some sense that everything in life,
dependent on their perspective, may be negotiable.
