I don't watch much
television but I do enjoy a good documentary occasionally . Not the ''dumbed down'' ones that repeat things every 10 minutes assuming the viewer has the memory of a goldfish . But the well made kind with a presenter who knows his subject .The one I watched a few days ago was on the formation of the universe presented by Professor Brian Cox.
Now I admit I'm not a deep thinker ! I had always had a feeling that all people are connected in some way- that somehow we are all 'one'. I couldn't put it into words or explain it at all. It just seemed right to me. You will probably have known this all along but I'd not given it much thought until recently.
In this programme Brian Cox was explaining the formation of the solar system when he said '' All the matter that exists today is the same matter that was present at the ''Big Bang'' when the universe was born. No more –
no less ''
Something clicked in my mind.
Now I knew this already My science education was a good one. ''Matter/energy cannot be created nor destroyed'' Basic physics. But I'd never thought how this applied to us ! This was my lightbulb moment. We are all made of the same matter that has always existed since the beginning of time.
Therefore we ARE all connected. We are all one. Physically as well as in spirit.
