At a time I thought that we were the cosmos becoming conscious of itself, in some sense literally, as Moby's song used to go "we are all made of stars".
We are indeed made of star stuff. Connected to the universe at an atomic level, to the earth at the chemical level, and to living beings. It could be possible that life is the cosmos in the conscious sense. To even think that the energy harnessed from nuclear fusion from hydrogen to helium, giving off light, ends up becoming the energy within us is quite epic as well. The very energy transfer we have in the solar system is as a result of the sun's formation, and after billions of years, this energy transfer is still going.
“Thoughts are the shadows of our feelings -- always darker, emptier and simpler.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche
