and The Reason is Here – The Universe and Connection

How we are all interconnected?This post is just a brief explanation of my last post. The post where I’ve written “The universe is full of wisdom and if you try to learn about it a little, if you try to understand about it a little then at some point it will teach you how we all are connected with each other and with all the things. In the period you try to understand about the universe, you will suddenly realize how a single perception, how a single conception plays a role in the humans life.”

There are reasons why I’ve written that and if you really want to know the reasons behind it then read the following things.
I’m just trying to explain it as briefly as I can. So, here’s it:

How can you say that we are made up of atoms? The answer to this question is not much difficult. We know that cells are made up of molecules, molecules are made up of atoms; humans and all the beings are made of cells and hence, we are made of various molecules and atoms. Now from where did these atom come from and how were they made? The answer to these questions lies in the creation of the universe. Long ago when the universe formed, at that time subatomic particles assembled into atoms and they formed hydrogen atoms. Hydrogen, the first element ever formed in the universe, the simplest type of atom. After that as the universe aged other elements were also created and that’s why it is said that every element on earth, except for the lightest was created in the some massive stars.

Now, we can say that every element in the periodic table aside from hydrogen is essentially a stardust as hydrogen is a big bang dust. So, lets see how much we are made up of stardust, and to know that we have to exclude hydrogen as it’s a big bang dust not a stardust.

Our body is composed of billions of billion atoms and in all these atoms some of them are hydrogen. Most of the hydrogen in our body floats around in the form of water and water usually makes up 55%-78%(approx.) of the human body and hydrogen only accounts for 11% of that water mass and from this, we can say that 92.5-93.7%(approx.) of the mass in our body is stardust. Hence, we are all made up of stardust and if you include hydrogen too then we are all made up of atoms, which were created in the universe long ago. Calcium in our bones, Iron in our blood, all were created in some massive stars!

However, I’m well aware of the fact that the truth can be a lot different from the theories, physics, philosophies, facts, understanding or everything and it can be a lot crazier and astonishing than we can even imagine. But so far, this is what I think about us and the universe, this is what I’ve learned and it fits into my understanding.

    Excellent post – we are all part of one another.
    There’s a great movie that talks about the interconnectedness of all things. It’s called MINDWALK. I think it’s out of print but its worth searching for. Also science writer, Fritjof Capra, has written extensively about this in his books TURNING POINT and THE WEB OF LIFE. And one of my favorite quotes; attributed to Native American, Chief Seattle, “Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect.”

  1. yes, oh yes. We are part of all that is, was, and every will be. The same “stuff” is in each and every living thing. So, I am part of the tree in Africa, the stars in the sky, and you. It’s a beautiful awareness.

  2. There is an interesting concept in Buddhism that it is impossible to reduce matter to a fundamental building block, whether it is an atom or a molecule. They hold that everything must be divisible and ultimately everything must be made up of emptiness. Like you they come to the same conclusion, that everything and everyone is made of stardust, however they go one step further and conclude that everything is an illusion. The benefit is that there cannot be a self, so it serves no purpose in attaching wants and desires to our illusory being. Secondly, that negative emotions and their accompanying pain are just a trick of our illusory mind. Strangely enough, quantum theory comes to similar conclusions.

    • And also according to quantum mechanics all the laws and equations can exist without time; and Buddhism has a similar concept, it says time doesn’t exist, it’s an illusion.
