    We are indeed reworked stardust. Scientists first got an inkling of this shimmering fact in the 1950s. We now know that every element on Earth and in our bodies that is heavier than hydrogen and helium was created in the bowels of a supernova that blew up in this sector of the galaxy some five billion years ago. (Actually, our star system was probably born of colliding outwash of several exploding stars)...

How does that happen
Reworked stardust?
You are you
I am me
Different and yet the same
Both took form out of reworked stardust.
