        Totally! Life is powerful. Life begets life. The Earth seems to want to stay alive, to survive, which makes perfect sense. As tiny little parts of the huge tapestry of life, we humans feel that same thing in our hearts. We too want to survive. We too want to keep going. To proliferate.

      Wow. Something to meditate on:

      The asteroid blasted a cavity between 25 and 30 miles deep in the first seconds of impact, creating a boiling cauldron of molten rocks and super-heated steam, according to the scientists’ interpretation of the rock. Rebounding from the hammer blow, a plume of molten rock splashed up into a peak higher than Mount Everest.

      I would love to see some kind of documentary about this because I honestly can’t wrap my head around this visually. Mind blowing.
