'Yatha Pinde Tatha Brahmand'. ( यथा  पिण्ड  तथा ब्रह्माण्ड ) . As is the body, so is the universe. So say the Vedas. What you see in the body exists in the universe - all processes, all elements, the material and the spiritual, the animate and the inanimate.
Everything on this planet including our bodies are made of the same 92 elements that the rest of the Universe is made of. Every atom that is a part of our body today was a part of a collapsed star somewhere in the distant universe. Every atom in our body is 4 billion years old and dates back to the Big Bang moment when the material universe was created as a reflection of 'Absolute Consciousness' or 'Brahman' (ब्रह्मन्), also often translated as 'the Absolute of the Universe'.

We are all Stardust really.

At a spiritual and non-material level we are all a part of the 'Absolute Consciousness" which pre-dates the 'Big Bang' moment. Time itself did not exist. And that is a dichotomy. How did something exist before the time when time itself did not exist.
