A Catalonian Cosmology: Part Two

Joan Miró (1893 - 1983) - The Constellations (12-22 of 23), 1941

'Behind every man now alive stand thirty ghosts, for that is the ratio by which the dead outnumber the living. Since the dawn of time, roughly a hundred billion human beings have walked the planet Earth. Now this is an interesting number, for by a curious coincidence there are approximately a hundred billion stars in our local universe, the Milky Way. So for every man who has ever lived, in this universe, there shines a star.'

Arthur C. Clarke (1917 - 2008)
