people posting on the internet think they're cooler than they are, because of the anonymity, and are more likely to commit thought crimes.

I meant contributed on an elemental basis, that is, the process by which heavier elements(up to approximately iron) are formed in fact takes place in the sun, but those heavier elements will never be dispersed due to restrictions on the sun's physical parameters. All of the atomic matter on earth was formed by suns other than our own.

Why? Our sun is our sun. It is not the other stars. Only that sun is the sun that, in an evolutionary schema, grew our particular forms of life.

Only one particular method of logic, and a shallow one, equates our sun to 'all the other stars' or 'just one of the stars.'
It's a little like equating your father to "all other fathers," but a grander error than even that.

OK, but you specified that 'physically' we all come from the [our] sun, which is incorrect. Instead of arguing this point further, we could aim for a middle-ground position by acknowledging that the sun provided the energy needed to foster and sustain life, but not the matter of which life is composed.

Wearing Sunglasses Can Affect Your Pineal Gland

More and more people are wearing sunglasses, even if the sun is not shining bright and I see also that little children (toddlers) have sunglasses on. I remember an article by Dr. Ornstein in the Letís live Magazine in October 1980 were it is explained that Sunlight is very important, day light is very vital. The Creator provided for our emotional and physical health by giving us the Pineal Gland and commanding "Let there be Light "

The Pineal Gland is an active, secreting gland throughout life. Natural, unfiltered sunlight is necessary for the proper functioning of this gland. Light as conscious electromagnetic energy from the sun enters the body through the optic nerves of the eyes which, in turn, directly stimulates the pineal gland, a photo reactive organ. The pineal gland converts light energy into an electrochemical impulse which feeds directly into the hypothalamus.

The hypothalamus is that part of the brain which mediates all of the vital processes of the body via its immediate and direct connections to the pituitary gland and the autonomic nervous system. The hypothalamus is filled with light sensitive cells which convert the electromagnetic signal of light into a neurochemical impulse which is then carried directly into the pituitary Gland. The pituitary , in turn, elaborates and secretes hormones within the body, thereby maintaining homeostasis. Learning all this makes us think when to wear sunglasses and also not to put them at little childrenís eyes.

The eyes are able to adjust to sunlight much more then we give them credit for. When we work in facilities with artificial light during the day then we can agree that people are not getting enough natural light. One statement that Dr. Ornstein made in his article mentioned before.
