“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 Tyson

  • Sat, 17:12: Poetry question. Are there any modern-day Bukowski's? I've not found anyone, yet. Here's one of his best poems read by Tom O'Bedlam if you're not familiar with his shtick: No Leaders Please https://t.co/TlXemCaT2A
