Are You Alone?
Well, that kind of depends on how you define “you”.
First, let’s distill our living bodies down to their most basic elements, the cells that you’re built of and that build you. Within those cells are countless chemical machines (embodied adorably in the above GIF), doing the work of converting certain arrangements of atoms into other, more useful arrangements of atoms.
And when we tally up just what those atoms are, and where they come from, we begin to realize that we are fundamentally connected to the universe itself, and although we may sometimes find our bodies and minds alone in the conscious sense, our atoms are with the always and forever, always and forever.
With that in mind, enjoy this wonderful video from Kurzgesagt:
