Here’s to another day on this magnificent orb. The orchestral processes of maintaining orbit are as complex as the twisted ‘ladder like’ conglomeration of molecules representing the literal fiber of our being. Whirling around at over 1,000 miles per hour as the Earth makes its yearly trip around the Sun, while in the past 23 hours, 56 minutes, and 4.09 seconds the Earth made a complete turn on its axis. Hello moon. Hello Sun.
The more I delve into the details of scientific theory, the more I am enamored with the world around me. Understanding complex biological processes and the puzzling aspects of time and space are key to understanding the meaning of life.
Whether one argues the universe came to be via an omniscient celestial being or rather by a complex nuclear reaction, one must conclude after serious contemplation that the science behind it all is utterly breathtaking.
Take it all in.
Life is short.
We Are Stardust, Literally
The average human has approximately 100 trillion cells and each cell is made of approximately 100 trillion atoms, each of which were originally created in the center of a star. The atoms that are in your hands have been created in a different star than the atoms in your feet, so by definition, we are galactic beings because the very structures that make up our bodies come from all over the galaxy.
