I was reading an article on the internet and encountered a phrase like so:

to your suffering

The full sentence is:

Space is indifferent to your suffering.

I wonder what does "to your suffering" mean? It would be great if anyone can explain it.

    It doesn't say "to your suffering" - it says "indifferent to your suffering". And it is explained in the immediately following sentence: it does not care if you suffer. – michael.hor257k Aug 14 '17 at 18:43

The expression is 'be indifferent to' and can be followed by a noun or a gerund, so "Space is indifferent to your suffering." or "He is indifferent to your health." It means "not concerned by".
