The universe is constellated with images of people and animals. Some of these have inspired myths and legends that in ancient times were used to explain astronomical and natural phenomenas. Yet our bond with the firmament has been attested by science otherwise: the matter that forms our bodies comes from the stars. Their imminent explosion, that sets end to their life, triggers a series of nuclear reactions that give origin to all the elements that can be found on Earth. Likewise our thoughts, that concretise through actions, originate from the welkin. Our bodies are the outcome of the constellation’s evolution and, with them, our dreams.
