Do you ever hear something on TV or read it in a book and you realize the gravity of that little soundbite means so much more to our personal stories than the context for which it was written? Harry Potter and Dr. Who are two such stories–full of gems too profound for fiction alone.
“All the elements in your body were forged many many millions of years ago in the heart of a faraway star that exploded and died. That explosion scattered those elements across the desolations of deep space. After so, so many millions of years, these elements came together to form new stars and new planets. And on and on it went. The elements came together and burst apart, forming shoes and ships and sealing wax and cabbages and kings. Until, eventually, they came together to make you. You are unique in the universe.”
