Stardust.

“The most astounding fact about the universe is the knowledge that, the atoms that comprise life on earth, the atoms that make up the human body, are traceable to the crucibles that cooked light elements into heavy elements in their core under extreme temperatures and pressures. These stars, the high mass ones among them, went unstable in their later years. They collapsed and then exploded, scattering their enriched guts across the galaxy. Guts made of carbon, nitrogen, oxygen and all the fundamental ingredients of life itself. These ingredients become part of gas clouds that condense, collapse and form the next generation of solar systems stars with orbiting planets and those planets have those ingredients of life itself.

When I look up at the night sky, and yes, we are a part of the universe and in this universe but perhaps more important than both of those facts is that the universe is us. When I reflect on that fact, I feel big. Because my atoms came from those stars. there is a level of connectivity.

That is what you want in life is you want to feel in life, you want to feel connected, you want to feel relevant, you want to feel as though you are participating in the goings on in the activities and events around you. That is what we do, exactly what we are, just by being alive.”

~astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson

Light and particle dust. Atoms and space sneeze. Millions and millions of years old. We are all a part of it. Call it the circle of life. Yet this is not Astrophysics, Physics or even Philosophy. It is not just science, religion or even spirituality. It is, in fact, all secrets. The secrets laid forth will connect you. Connect you to the light and with the energy. Activities for relevance. Exercises for participation. Things in which will present in front of you the light, energy and matter which has been continuously exploding in all directions from all space and time in the Universe.
It is the secret patterns for which those atoms can fall to create.

To live.

When looking deeper at what Dr Tyson has to say, you wonder if Hermes Trismeistus was right when he wrote in the Emerald Tablets “As Above, so Below”.

There it is.
