We are stardust, we are golden, and we’ve got to get ourselves back to the garden…
That was very poetic!
I love this. Do you know where its quoted from?
A quick Google search suggests it’s originally from a lecture by Lawrence Krauss, a clip of which is on YouTube:
I always thought this was the most amazing bit on How The Universe Works – everything – EVERYTHING other than hydrogen comes from stars. That’s just so insanely awesome to think about sometimes.
One could further argue that the distinction between “you” and “those stars” is an arbitrary conceptualisation…
I may have to tattoo that somewhere.
i have a star tattoo, and now it’s just a trendy hipster thing, but my age 14 year old self intended it to express a more similar sentiment.
but i have to say i prefer:
“And when the universe has finished exploding all the stars will slow down, like a ball that has been thrown into the air, and they will come to a halt and they will all begin to fall towards the centre of the universe again. And then there will be nothing to stop us seeing all the stars in the world because they will all be moving towards us, gradually faster and faster, and we will know that the world is going to end soon because when we look up into the sky at night there will be no darkness, just the blazing light of billions and billions of stars, all falling.”
— Mark Haddon (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time)
although it’s a bit grim i s’pose
Iâve been into blogging for quite some time and this is definitely a great post.Cheers!
