You can cut toast into the shape of a star. Even then - and even to a two-year-old - the toast will only become about 17% more interesting. If anything, we find that star-shaped toast, while handsome, only makes us think of Christmas cookies. So then we want a Christmas cookie - not this tricksy toast. The star shape works against toast, in that way. So there's no need to make it look like something else, especially something the cosmos is full of. Nevertheless, sometimes we render toast into the shape of a star or quasar or black hole. And sometimes it expires, flames out, or collapses into the Void. So we move on with our day. Most things, we understand, are not at all eternal.
