We are Made of Stars...

“We are all stardust”

Carl Sagan

"Our bodies are made of stardust, and the atoms that make up our bodies were forged in the hearts of stars. From the tiniest subatomic particle to the vast expanse of the universe, there's beauty and wonder everywhere. We are all connected." -- Bill Nelson, NASA Administrator, Former US Senator from Florida, March 7, 2023

Speaking of stardust, a peace movement, counterculture dreams of peace & love... imagine

We are Golden and we got to get ourselves back to the Garden...

We are stardust, (billion year old carbon), we are golden (caught in a devils bargain) and we got to get ourselves back to the garden.

-- Woodstock by Joni Mitchell

JM: "This next song is about one of these pop festivals... around the world lately... It was really a nice festival" ...

The Stardust Revolution: The New Story of Our Origin in the Stars

September 2012

by Jacob Berkowitz (Author)

This book is a revolution of scientific understanding but even more-so it is a journey of us; a journey which follows our stupendous genealogy and ecological relationship with the cosmos. This genealogy is not of the conventional kind, that of genetic information which connects all known life of all epochs together on an almost personal level. The type of genealogy the author uses is one which is much more fundamental and arguably more personal. This is a genealogy of our most foundational constituents, it is the very bonds of our nature which connects us with almost every facet of the cosmos. This node of connectivity between us and the cosmos is of course the atom. Anyone with a modicum of knowledge knows of the periodic table, and that its table consists of what make you, I and 4% of the observable universe. Seldom do people know how they came to be or even know that they were not always around in the abundance as they are today. In the words of Neil degrass Tyson " we can hardly comprehend the essence of anything without knowing where it came from".

We are, our Solar System is, in the 'Milky Way' galaxy....
'Milky Way' is a translation of the Latin via lactea, from the Greek γαλαξίας κύκλος (galaxías kýklos)
We are in a "milky circle"..... #Eco-on #PlanetCitizens
