- We Are All Stardust
Decided to give you guys another EP track to play with :)
When composing this one, I had a favorite quote of mine in mind: "Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. And, the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics: You are all stardust. You couldn’t be here if stars hadn’t exploded, because the elements - the carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, iron, all the things that matter for evolution and for life - weren’t created at the beginning of time. They were created in the nuclear furnaces of stars, and the only way for them to get into your body is if those stars were kind enough to explode. So, forget Jesus. The stars died so that you could be here today." -Lawrence M. Krauss
I pictured an old man, living as a hermit in the forest. He is walking through the forest at night. He is very weak. He lays down on the forest floor and dies. Little specks of glowing stardust begin floating off his body into space, until none of his body is left. It has all gone back to the stars.
