I am watching an excellent doco on the NatGeo channel, about a study that used genetic markers to track humanity's expansion from its origins in Africa.
The evidence points to a common origin of every human being there is and was to a small group of individuals who lived in Southern Africa over a hundred thousand years ago.
Physics has already established that all of the heavier atoms in our body where created inside stars.
So science tells us that we are all made of star stuff, and related to each other.
I can't think of a better idea to start an year with.
To my star-born brethren: a happy 2013 for all of us.
