Connectedness

“What I experienced during that three day trip home was nothing short of an overwhelming sense of universal consciousness. I actually felt what has been described as an ecstasy of unity. It occurred to me that the molecules of my body and this spacecraft, of the world I had come from and was now returning to, were all manufactured in the furnace of …ancient stars like those surrounding us. Our presence here was not an accident of nature, but rather an extension of the same universal process that evolved our molecules. And I felt an extraordinary personal connectedness with it. I experienced an ecstasy of unity. I not only saw the connectedness, I felt it.”

Edgar Mitchell, lunar astronaut
