The cosmic third eye and the title are indicative of what knowledge of astronomy, cosmology, and physics can do. We are all made from star "ash" which was created when ancient, large stars exploded in supernovae. Being aware of our place in the universe and how it has birthed the creation of our planet and intelligent life is extraordinary and provides us with a comforting perspective beyond the stresses of everyday life. The study of such fields are not only fascinating but binding and inspiring, and my interest in science has led me to have a deeper connection with my own soul.
