"Life is debris" according to cosmologists. The building blocks of life come from nucleo-synthesis, the process of heavy element creation from deep within stars. When these stars exhaust their fuel, they blast their material out into space to begin the generation of new stars. And from generation to generation an abundance of heavy elements forms the planets, comets, asteroids, and the things we human beings are made of. Nucleo-synthesis suggest that all life is merely a product of natural processes and not unusual to our world. We are all made of stardust!
