This text is a deep reflection on the relationship between astronomy and life on Earth. It begins by remembering our origin in the Big Bang and how every atom in our body comes from ancient stars. Then, explore how astronomical cycles have influenced the evolution and behavior of living things, from the simplest organisms to humans.

It highlights how various species, such as bolero beetles and bees, have developed skills to orient themselves using the celestial bodies. Furthermore, it points out the importance of sky observation in the development of human culture, from the creation of calendars to the emergence of religions and mythologies.

The text also introduces the "PAH triad" (Pareidolia, Apophenia, Hierophany) as a tool to understand how humans have interpreted astronomical phenomena and integrated them into their cultural beliefs and practices.

Finally, reflect on our cosmic destiny, remembering that we are "stardust" destined to return to the cosmos when our sun collapses. In summary, the text offers a holistic vision of astronomy as a fundamental part of the human experience and of life itself in the universe.
