While probably not saying man is the center of the universe, this passage does elevate man's spirit to at least something of an equivalent with the other two things mentioned - not a small thing! And the progression of things mentioned in the verse is also interesting.

I just wouldn't want to see our proverbial pendulum swing too far in the other direction . . . that is in accordance with: "What is man that You are mindful of him?" (I think this question appears at least 4 times in scripture)
