-Neil DeGrasse Tyson
Today we understand where stars come from, we understand how the Aurora Borealis is formed, but that does not take the awe and mythic function the stars play in our lives. Neil DeGrasse Tyson explains it so eloquently, that the most astounding fact about the universe is that we are quite literally stardust. For him that belief is so powerful that it transcends scientific proof to pragmatic proof. His belief affects his outlook on life, guides his thinking, places him in the universe. As we learn more about the stars, the myth of a connection between us and the stars does not become less true, but rather gains a more literal meaning that can be taken to a mythic level.
