"...every atom in our bodies was once part of a star..." - Gattaca

The Universe Is A Green Dragon by Brian Swimme Alchemy


internal linkYouth: are you saying that the star is aware of what it is doing?

Thomas: Well, yes and no.  But let's think about it a moment.  We are the self-reflexion of the universe.  We allow the universe to know and feel itself.  So the universe is aware of itself through self-reflexitve mind, which unfurles in the human.  We were brought forth so that these experiences of beauty could enter awareness.  The primeval fireball existed for twenty billion years without self-awareness.  The creative work of the supernovas existed for billions of years without self-reflexive awareness.  That star could not, by itself, become aware of its own beauty or sacrifice.  But the star can, through us, reflect back on itself.  In a sense, you are the star.  Look at your hand - do you claim it as your own? Every element was forged in temperatures a million times hotter than molten rock, each atom fashioned in the blazing heat of the star.  Your eyes, your briain, your bones, all of you is composed of the star's creations.  You ARE that star, brought into a form of life that enables life to reflect on itself.  So, yes: the star DOES know of its great work, of its surrender to allurement, of its stupendous contribution to life, but only through its further articulation - you.

"All the elements of the Earth except hydrogen and some internal linkhelium have been cooked by a kind of stellar internal linkalchemy billions of years ago in stars, some of which are today inconspicuous white dwarfs on the other side of the internal linkMilky Way Galaxy. The nitrogen in our internal linkDNA, the calcium in our  teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of  collapsing stars. We are  made of starstuff."
