3. In a couple of Frank Herbert's less well known books stars are conscious beings..

Perhaps that is our fate and purpose, to become part of a conscious star, we're going there sooner or later anyway.

It's as good a theology as any, given what we can see of the complexity of the closest star, our Sun.

Stars evolve along the main sequence and they are incredibly complex with vast knotted and intertwined magnetic and electric fields.

A main sequence red giant eventually shrinks to a white dwarf and they last a very long time, even by geological standards.
