From what I can gather, a star’s makeup is the same as everyone else’s. I know scientist would cringe here, but for my purposes, which are always literary (although not necessarily literal), so calm down NASA …
From the makeup of the stars to the makeup of ‘us’, was no great cognitive leap forward for me. More like a tottering toe-tap. I mean, it’s obvious. We are virtually ‘stars’. The word ‘virtual’ is essential here. If a star is made of hydrogen, helium and nothing more besides, well then, what is that? Doesn’t that add up to ‘nothing’? Of course not!

Stars are the highest level evolution as far as this novelist can gaze it. That’s why stars are in heaven. Light that gives light.

And on this week’s episode of Reel Time, I put this latest hypothesis of mine to the test. With a little bit of clumping, crimping, puffing, pulling in all the oldest, spacey atoms on my (insert similar adjectives here) anatomy, I got to live the dream.

Forget beauty being skin deep. It’s not even deeper. Illuminate, radiant cosmic wonderfulness goes full bore when it’s at the atomic level. Like the article explains, in the link above, having your electrons shoot off into all directions is what makes your star shine.
