It’s Just Chemical

I learned from a brilliant mind this week about the first law of thermodynamics, the transfixing notion that energy can neither be destroyed nor created – only transformed. I became facinated by the idea that our universe is made of cascading energy, continually flowing between galaxies and between pebbles – and that maybe the same energy that lives in me once lived inside a star?

Maybe this is where intuition comes from? From the chemical energy that’s been transforming and transferring across our universe for billions of years.  From the chemical energy that’s been here before and will be here again and remembers it all on a deep physical level. What a magnificent thought that is..

We are energy, enchanted.

Never created, never destroyed – constantly cascading, colliding, (re)creating the universe.

We are energy, evolved.

For once I was you and once you were me and once we were both stars.

We are energy, embodied.

We are energy. We. Are. Energy.

… And energy always remembers.
