There are some in astrophysics who say that we are stardust brought to life, then empowered by the universe to figure itself out - and we have only just begun. I hold a less divisive opinion about the nature of the stars. We are not we but God perceiving itself as diversified not to feel alOne. As to the universe; the universe is not the universe but God experiencing itself as itself and calling itself the universe. After all; is it not God who came up with the words universe and stardust? Besides. God has not only just begun. God always is. God perceives time not to be alone. God perceives time to experience Companionship. God perceives time to Love and Be Loved in return.
