The Nerve of Stardust!
These are nerve cells just like the cells in our brains that allow us to read and interpret the image and words that we see here. Our brains are an elegant lacework of trillions of connections among nerve cells that constantly monitor our bodies' status and send signals for managing adjustments. They tell us when we are thirsty or hungry, upright or upside down. Delicate nuances in these connections shape conversational styles, generate senses of humor, create mathematical genius, forge artistic talent, and fashion dreams, all cosmic events when you consider their promordial origins—stardust. Stardust that can dream!
A creature from outer space?
