As you look up at the stars on a beautiful clear, crisp evening, you can see an array of stars blanketed throughout the sky. You may feel small in this vast space you gaze at, however, you are bigger than you could even imagine. It takes billions of years for light to travel billions of light-years through space. From our vantage point here on Earth we can see light from stars that are billions of light-years away. A light-year is the maximum distance that light can travel in one year in the vacuum of space. So, most stars are made up of Hydrogen and Helium, as they are the lightest elements.
Stars shine by burning Hydrogen into Helium in their cores, and later in their lives create heavier elements. Most stars have small amounts of heavier elements like Carbon, Nitrogen, Oxygen and Iron, which were created by stars that existed before them, billions of light years ago. After a star runs out of fuel, it ejects much of its material back into space. Some of this material creates new stars and planets, and can even eject into the atmosphere of planets that have already been created. The material that is ejected is technically recycled. When the elements of stars hit the atmosphere of a planet that already has heavier elements within it, it will birth new elements with the chemistry or combination of the star waste. This is what created life on our planet Earth. Earth was fertile with the elements for the creation of life. All she needed was to be ejected with elements of space, star waste, which are the building blocks for life on our planet. Does this remind you of an ovum and sperm, which are the necessary components for the fruition of all life. As above, so below!
Almost 99% of the mass of the entire human body is made up of six elements: Oxygen, Carbon, Hydrogen, Nitrogen, Calcium, and Phosphorus. Only a small amount is composed of another five elements: Potassium, Sulfur, Sodium, Chlorine, and Magnesium. So is it logical to say that we are made up of the ejected material of the stars that lived before us? Are we actually a living, breathing organism of star dust? Absolutely! If you know anything about science, than you will understand that we are really bigger than the human mind could possibly fathom.
Quantum theory is the theoretical basis of modern physics that explains the nature and behavior of matter and energy on the atomic and subatomic level. The subject matter of physics, is mechanics, heat, light radiation, sound, radio waves, electricity, magnetism, and the structure of atoms. Quantum Physics is physics at a subatomic level. A subatomic particle such as, protons, neutrons, electrons, or atomic nuclei, are bound states of two or more elementary particles. Elementary particles are particles with no measurable internal structure. They are not composed of other particles and are classified according to their spin. If ‘spinning’ is a element of movement and movement is an element of energy, is it reliable to say that Elementary particles work at a subatomic, molecular, ‘energetic’ level? It is ‘All Energy’ that binds, particle to particle, subatomic atom to atom, cell to cell, and so forth to create an organism; Life!
So now that we understand that everything is energy, Quantum Physics, we can proceed to say that in all essence, we are really technically billions of years old. If the stars are billions of light years away and it takes billions of years for star dust to reach our Solar System, our planet, than the elements within us are billions of years old. We are the Universe incarnate in a Human body.
So the next time you look up at the stars and think that you are small, realize that you are the Universe and all of its cosmic elements in one beautiful Divine package. You are bigger than you could even image.
