We Are Dead Stars

Think about that for a minute. Carl Sagan, in the original “Cosmos” series said “we are all made of star stuff” and he couldn’t have thrilled me more.

I know this scares the bejeebus out of many folks, but it’s comforting and makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.  I like to think that when we die we go back to the stars to bring forth new life in another time and place.

More later.

  1. Yes, having had a keen interest in Astronomy since childhood this is so fascinating. I'd only add that it's quite possible that at one of the many intermediate stages, life on Earth actually began on Mars. I shan't go now into how that could be, which you yourself may well know in any case, but anything that makes those potty Biblical fundamentalists splutter with rage and indignation is worthwhile - and damn good fun!
