The Graveyard Has A Nursery

26 Aug

This is the ORION Nebulaeso1109a, and I shudder at how puny, how fragile, we are under its gaze.  REMEMBER, this isn’t there anymore, not like this.  Look at  these clouds of gaseous dust and newly dying stars, right beside newly forming ones many thousands of years ago.  The graveyard has a nursery!  This is where all DNA was formed, all the elementals of life, all the minerals to nourish it.  We can believe in these monsters which dominate the electronic eyes of all our probes, with their filters to better show off the detail.  We CAN believe because, after all this is US.

We belong in the shades of star sparkle, blessed by the winds of clouds from exploding galaxies,

We belong here.
