    ad infinitum

    “Recognize that the very molecules that make up your body, the atoms that construct the molecules, are traceable to the crucibles that were once the centers of high mass stars that exploded their chemically rich guts into the galaxy, enriching pristine gas clouds with the chemistry of life.

    So that we are all connected to each other biologically,
    to the earth chemically, and to the rest of the universe atomically. That’s kinda cool! That makes me smile and I actually feel quite large at the end of that. It’s not that we are better than the universe, we are part of the universe.

    We are in the universe and the universe is in us.”
    ― Neil deGrasse Tysonimage

The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena.

    I live on Earth at present, and I don’t know what I am. I know that I am not a category. I am not a thing - a noun. I seem to be a verb, an evolutionary process - an integral function of the universe

    - Buckminster Fuller

    Sometimes it is the illusion of that thin vast line, the horizon that separates us and fools us into believing there is a dividing space where the sky meets the land: instead they meet and kiss, intermingling and becoming one

Antennae  galaxies
The collision, which began more than 100 million years ago and is still occurring, has triggered the formation of millions of stars in clouds of dust and gas in the galaxies. The most massive of these young stars have already sped through their evolution in a few million years and exploded as supernovas.

    "The compelling thing about making art - or making anything, I suppose - is the moment when the vaporous, insubstantial idea becomes a solid there, a thing, a substance in a world of substances."

It's the minuscule machinations of everyday living that often go unnoticed. Magnifying glasses do not suffice. They are the invisibilities that comprise our very souls, like atoms that comprise the stars.
