Artist's Description

“Hereafter” – (Bridging the Divide)
Making the ‘Atomic’ connection in 3 easy steps:

Step 1

“Don’t stand by my grave and weep,
For I am not there,
I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond’s glint on snow,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn’s rain.
In the soft hush of the morning light
I am the swift bird in flight.
Don’t stand by my grave and cry,
I am not there,
I did not die.

- Mary Elizabeth Frye”

Step 2

“If you had to reduce scientific history to one important statement it would be :“All things are made of atoms” [Richard Feynman, Physicist].They are everywhere and they constitute everything. Look around you. It is all atoms. Not just the solid things like walls and tables and sofas, but the air in between. And they are there in numbers you really cannot conceive…

Atoms , in short, are very abundant.They are also fantastically durable . Because they are so long-lived, atoms really get around. Every atom you possess has almost certainly passed through several stars and been part of millions of organisms on its way to becoming you. We are each so atomically numerous and so vigorously recycled at death that a significant number of our atoms –upto a billion for each of us, it has been suggested — probably once belonged to Shakespere. A billion more each came from Buddha and Genghis Khan and Beethoven, and any other historical figure you care to name. ( The personages have to be historical, apparently, as it takes the atoms some decades to become thoroughly redistributed…)

So we are all reincarnations – though short-lived ones. When we die, our atoms will disassemble and move off to find new uses elsewhere – as part of a leaf or other human being or drop of dew. Atoms themselves, however, practically go on forever…"

(From : "A Short History of Nearly Everything” by Bill Bryson (2003) – A Black Swan Book, published by Transworld Publishers- A division of The Random House Group Ltd.)

Step 3

fare well & disassemble! :-)
