  3. Somebody has to go polish the stars,They’re looking a little bit dull.Somebody has to go polish the stars,For the eagles and starlings and gulls
Have all been complaining they’re tarnished and worn,They say they want new ones we cannot afford.
So please get your ragsAnd your polishing jars,
Somebody has to go polish the stars.—Shel Silverstein

    So please get your rags
    And your polishing jars,

    Somebody has to go polish the stars.

  8. The universe bursts into existence from life, not the other way around as we have been taught. For each life there is a universe, its own universe. We generate spheres of reality, individual bubbles of existence. Our planet is comprised of billions of spheres of reality, generated by each individual human and perhaps even by each animal.  —Robert Lanza
