Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson tells us what astonishes him most about our universe: that the atoms comprising our bodies are literally made of star-dust. "So that when I look up at the night sky and I know that yes, we are part of this universe, we are in this universe, but perhaps more important than both of those facts is that the universe is in us," he says. "There is a level of connectivity" - which is what most of us want in life: to feel connected, relevant.

    Spiritual traditions have been claiming this for ages; now, the proof is scientific. And, still, there will be scientists and their followers who will not acknowledge their heritage, and keep to their own bubbles of perspective. If you know one of those, send them this, along with all those others who you love. And, don't worry, be happy.

    It inspires me that he speaks ti with so much emotion in his voice. Those same facts told by a less enthusiastic reporter would seem dry. His awe and articulate delivery made me want to see the universe through his eyes. Thanks Neil, thanks Max.

    What inspires me in this film is that science is so quickly proving the new age philosophy's essence. We are all one, everything is energy, you get what you put out and on and on! Love it! Keeps my courage charged for my journey that believes the same things! "Doing what i would do if I knew I couldn't fail!

    Here is something that is true, that is now happening and the joy to be a witness of experience it and totality within our conscious fractal earth body vehicle.

    YAY!! Well, just hurry up and put this on CNN & the World News circuit so that this information can help facilitate all the religious fundamentalists (of ALL organized religions) catch up with those of the world's population who embrace more the philosophy of Ancient Wisdom New Thought!

    This connectivity is reflected in the Hindu view that all life is sacred and is part of one whole. To extend beyond the world limits to the universe is an awesome concept. Can humanity grasp this idea before we destroy this fragile world of life?

  • daz

    I have seen the universe appear in me and witnessed creation - and there remains no doubt the creation of this universe begins with, is made of and projects outwards from the one source of all - this Light that we each are. This most astounding fact, supports and offers physical observation of a slice of the same truth. Let's bring these understandings together.
