It blows my mind to think of all the stars out there, all engaging in this activity. Trillions upon trillions of them, full of atoms boiling at millions of degrees, wrapped in powerful lines of magnetic tension, moving through spacetime warped by intense gravity. All this energy of entropy, as matter condenses due to gravity. These events that fill all of space and time with photons and neutrinos, and create the heavy atoms that go on to form planets, life and people! Through this beautiful process, gravity creates complexity! It’s all so connected! We’re made of stars, we orbit a star, our food is put together by starlight and when we look up at the night sky, it’s filled with stars! We are the stars!
Keep in mind that you could fit ten earths side by side in the width of this sunspot.
That sunspot just let off a powerful solar flare! A massive burst of gamma and X-Rays, loud radio noise, and a fast moving CME that should cause Aurora on Earth on February 15th!
The Omega Nebula in Infra-Red light.  Stellar birth becomes visible!  Our atoms spent time in one of these clouds…
The Omega Nebula in visible light.  Dark black clouds of dust!

When we exhale, we are reliving the moment which birthed the Cosmos, the moment which signaled the semi-instant transition from unfathomable density to near-infinite expanse.

When we breathe, we relive the life cycle of the Universe: in exhaling, we witness its birth; in inhaling, we witness its death, its re-collectivization into hyper-density—the return to the sub-atomic universe.

Breathe in: the universe in a grain of sand.
Breathe out: there are more stars in the Universe than there are grains of sand in all the beaches of our world.

We breathe the life cycle of the Universe—its construction and its destruction; its synthesis and its dissemination; exhaling its birth, inhaling its death.

We are, each of us, the creators and destroyers of worlds—the living manifestations of the Cosmos. Our articulations are the expressions of the star stuff which spurred our creation.

It’s time for some 21st century shamanism =D
