In a previous post I shared a video about how science saved man’s soul. When you look up at the night sky what do you see? The moon? The stars? Clouds? A combination of them maybe? How about the space between you and another object or being? You’re probably thinking that it’s just that, (empty) space. However it is so much more than that. If everyone and everything are comprised of atoms then that means that the space you are seeing isn’t empty, it’s full of atoms. The law of conservation of energy states that energy can not be created nor can it be destroyed, it can simply change and transform meaning that we are as old as time itself and that we are all connected. So when I look up at stars made up of stars in all my sense of wonder and beauty I know that I am also the very star that I’m looking at, looking down at myself and in that moment I know what it truly feels like to be infinite. Oh how I wish that I understood even just a fraction of what this meant when my beloved aunt passed. Even though I strongly believed in an afterlife I still felt that she was truly dead because back then I didn’t truly understand what life really is. Knowing and understanding everything I do now, I know that she isn’t actually dead, she has simply transformed. So when I look up at the stars and see myself watching from above I know that she as well is the very star I am looking up at, that she is living inside of me too. She is everywhere just as we are, she is me and I am her. Just as I am you and you are me. This doesn’t make us or the stars or anything else less special if anything it makes us much more than what we ever really gave thought to, stars die and burst into supernovas and because of that we are here, we are living. A star died so we could live, how could it get any more special than that?
