As I stated before this was just a random thought in an early morning I woke up for a second. Here goes nothing.
You know about the idea of the four plus one elements. Fire, Air, Water, Earth and Ether or whatever the fifth got in different cultures, doesn't really matter it's just a jolly joker placeholder for non-(perceivably)-material stuff.
So when you build a fire you need three things: flammable material, heat and oxygen. The first one usually some type of mainly carbon material (wood or coals), can be matched with the Earth being solid substances, the products of the soil, land, earth. Heat is the Fire and oxygen is the Air ofc. When you burn a fire like this several things are released: vapor - which is Water -, energy in the form of heat and light, i.e. Fire and Ether, and gases (CO, CO2) equals Air, all stored in the burning Earth materials, which reduced into a leftover pile.
Our life is sames. We are made of Earth and take sustenance, made of Earth and Water, and we burn it with the help of inhaled oxygen (Air). During the process we generate Fire to keep our body temperature, exhale vapor (Water) and gases (Air). We pass out the leftover Earth. The most notable thing is the other part of the energy which isn't become heat. The Ether makes possible not just the ability of movement but the ability to form thoughts and make decisions. With the help of Ether we can create manipulate the Earthen world and create innumerable Ethereal objects (like a poem), beings (like the gods) even worlds (like Middle-Earth) and other, probably much more stuff.
For starters this feels enough, it sounded much cooler back then.
