It is my hope that through my writing I may help heal, teach, and guide others on their spiritual journeys and in this life. Whatever our backgrounds, religious or not, we are all on the same journey. Though I may reference different philosophical schools, religions, and spiritual practices, I believe that under the surface they all provide paths for us to free ourselves from our sufferings and live a good and joyful life.

CosmosCosmologists study the universe in its totality: the origin, the structure, and the processes. By studying the planets, the stars, meteorites, and space itself, astronomers search to understand the past and the origins of both the universe and of ourselves. They are like the archaeologists of the universe. Here are five amazing facts that they have discovered that show that we are the cosmos:

1) The amino acids that make proteins, came from meteorites. These building blocks for life did not originate on our planet, but were delivered here from outer space. Without amino acids, there would be no RNA, DNA, or life on Earth.

2) The calcium in our bones and the iron in our blood came from stardust. We can quite literally “thank our lucky stars”!

3) Ether pervades all space, including the space within and between our cells, and is the medium of transmission of light, heat, and electromagnetic waves.

4) One percent of the static between television stations is microwave sound left over from the Big Bang. The sounds of the cosmos are vibrating through and all around us!

5) Outer space is only 20 kilometers away. That’s less than a half marathon distance! We are so close, yet we think it is something way out there. In reality space is everywhere. It is the most abundant thing in the universe. It is part of every particle, atom, cell, rock, creature, planet, star, and black whole.

In a interview with Time magazine, astrophysicist Dr. Neil DeGrasse Tyson was asked: What is the most astounding fact you can share with us about the universe?

He answered: We are part of this universe; we are in this universe, but perhaps more important than both of those facts, is that the universe is in us.

    Totally agree! Would that more people recognized this instead of thinking they are this ‘unique’ entity. Truth is, we are all connected not only to the cosmos but to each other.

    Cool post….We are the stuff that stars are made of….Not sure I quoted Sagan correctly there, but you get my drift. :)

    Love this. Have come late in life to be fascinated with physics. In reading some of the theories and discoveries in that science, I am beginning to get the first glimmerings of the truths that are the source of our human philosophies, religions, mythologies, superstitions, etc., all of which are interpretations of the ultimate reality (ies?) that we have yet to discover. But those of us, like you, who read and seek to discover and who think, are getting close. This is very beautiful, unless we use it to pump ourselves up, yet again, with delusions of grandeur and self-importance, which is the usual human take on what is simply fact/information about our physical universe. Yes, we share physical properties with stars, but what are stars, really? Masses of gas. Not trying to burst any bubbles here, but to make the point that these cosmic relationships don’t have to be converted into metaphors about stars as heavenly and magic and us as beings touched with the magic of star dust; the breathtaking beauty in these cosmic relationships lies in the simple fact of their being. Think about it. What is gas, light, sound, color, scent, etc., etc. What is it? Go down down the chain of the essential elements of any mass of energy, which is all that we and everything is, and you can’t come to the source, or the first element, because that first element or that source has a source. And when you finally get this, when you finally get it that everything we think of as “real” or physical is just the oscillations of the energy of the universe and that each universe is spinning off another and another, then you begin to understand the meaning of infinity. This is more powerful, more stunning in its implications and more terribly beautiful than the glorification of humankind as beings touched with the fairy dust of the stars. What you can learn from physics is that, if we, even in our animal state here on this planet, are part of the living energy of the universe, we are, in fact, immortal.

    Nicely put! “Oscillations of energy”…yes, we, the stars, the Universe are vibrations, strings….Physics, specifically quantum physics, is giving us a language to explain philosophies, religions, metaphysics, etc. There is still so much to learn and become aware of!
    Have a great New Year!
