Saturn’s moon Enceladus drifts before the rings and the tiny moon Pandora is lower right in this view that NASA’s Cassini spacecraft captured on Nov. 1, 2009. The entire scene
is backlit by the sun, providing striking illumination for the icy particles that make up both the rings and the jets emanating from the south pole of Enceladus.

Pandora was on the opposite side of the rings from Cassini and Enceladus when the image was taken. This view looks toward the nightside on Pandora as well, which is lit by dim golden light reflected from Saturn – NASA/JPL

Imagine you are there. There is the giant Saturn, surrounded by the rings and the moons and other satellites are circling. You can feel the presence and round shape of the moon Enceladus right in front of you. Those in the distance look small, but they are hundreds of

thousands of miles away. Gas jets of icy particles spew out of Enceladus’ south pole, pumping a constant rhythm, like steam escaping from a pressure cooker.

We are all made from star dust. All life is connected. Living creatures of many kinds inhabit our world of rock and water and air. So too elsewhere life will take many forms.

When you wrap your mind around this, it is impossible to not think there is an intelligence behind all this. A power that makes it possible and manages this unruly collection of planets and solar systems and galaxies and on and on to infinity. There is an intelligence in that. It is Life.

You may call that force, that intelligence, that life, God.

Think About It.
