Title of work

Incandescence - white with heat

Synopsis

‘All the elements of the earth except hydrogen and some helium have been cooked by a kind of stellar alchemy billions of years ago in stars, some of which are today inconspicuous white dwarfs on the other side of the Milky Way Galaxy. The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of stars.’ Carl Sagan

If we are all made of the same matter, all originate from the same place, what is the seed of animosity?
