A philosopher once asked, “Are we human because we gaze at the stars, or do we gaze at them because we are human?” Pointless, really… “Do the stars gaze back?” Now *that’s* a question.
from Stardust (2007)
Great opening statement. Do humans see beauty in their surroundings because they are capable of rational thought and irrational emotions, because it is an unchangeable fact that they made humans first before they became humane? or is it just anatomy, because evolution has permitted humans the ability to enjoy and contemplate on their being?
