It would be difficult to imagine life without Saccharomyces cerevisiae. That is the scientific name of the common yeast. It is essential for baking, brewing and winemaking. Through the process of fermentation, which produces energy and protein necessary for living tissues, it makes possible many of the things we take for granted in our everyday lives. In the grandeur that is life, it is the small things like yeast that makes life what it is.
The smallest of seeds becomes the biggest of trees. Dust from the stars evolve into a conscious intelligence. And this amazing evolution happens in one insignificant planet revolving around an average star almost at the edge of a small galaxy, named by this conscious intelligence as the Milky Way.
Small though we are, our imaginations know no limit. We reach for the stars. Limited though we may be, we dream of a life and existence without limits. We dream of a heaven where there is life everlasting. Insignificant though we seem, we wonder in the vastness of the universe why we seem to be the only one of our kind. We try to search for intelligent consciousness elsewhere. But we have so far not been successful.
This cannot all be by accident. There has to be Someone behind all this. And if we are but a fleeting moment in the timeline all that exists, it is like an eternity of being, having experienced the blessings of existence and consciousness. It is reason enough to be grateful to whoever it is who made all this possible.
