Synthesis (from the ancient Greek σύνθεσις σύν (with) and θεσις (placing), is commonly understood to be an integration of two or more pre-existing elements which results in a new creation. (wikipedia)
look where we live, we are a part of a big synthesis.
do you know the saying: "we are all stardust."? its true, because we are mostly made of carbon and our world is made of metal, wood and stone. Remember the periodic table from chemistry and physics. all the elements except Hydrogen and Helium were created by nuclear fusion in a super nova. thats the point. ALL IS A HUGE SYNTHESIS.
