    I have not yet encountered a reason to give an affirmative answer to those questions.

    No. I am curious what prompts this question?

    This sounds like some crank new-age rubbish, viz: this and this.
    While light from any given star will, at some point, probably hit another star "connection" is pushing the description, as is "pillars of light".

    I take reference from science and scientists. And not from myths
    Thanks

    I don't see any pillars/columns of light connected to our Sun, do you?

    I've never seen/read/heard of such evidence for any star, have you?

    What evidence shows this to be true with, for example, our Sun?

    Wouldn't other celestial bodies pass through such pillars/columns?

    Then please provide the scientific reference.

    Very soon science will discovered that there are connections between the stars with lights.

    So what you're saying - despite your comment about taking "reference from science and scientists" - is that there is no science supporting this view.
    What makes you think that science will "discover" this?
    (Especially given that it's simply not true...)

    On what basis do you make this claim? What evidence is there for these connections?

    This was the case with Einstein and Newton, and Galileo. Some people thought it was impossible, but not. And I repeat this again, science will discover and know that every star with another star connected by physical elements of light. And please do not use science to you philosophical thinking. Science is science and not atheism, theism, or whatever

    Not in the least. They had both theory and evidence to support their ideas. That is why they were accepted.

    Please present the evidence supporting your claims.

    And I repeat this again, science will discover and know that every star with another star connected by physical elements of light.
    And, using exactly the same amount of evidence as you, I say they will not.

    Without evidence there is no reason to accept your ludicrous claims.

    And please do not use science to you philosophical thinking. Science is science and not atheism, theism, or whatever
    Please use some science to support your claims. Otherwise we can just ignore you.

    Please don't invent your own history: Einstein, Newton and the rest based their discoveries on known, actual, science. Not made-up crap.

    And I repeat this again, science will discover and know that every star with another star connected by physical elements of light.
    Repeat it all you like: it won't make it true.

    And please do not use science to you philosophical thinking. Science is science and not atheism, theism, or whatever
    And what YOU are not doing is talking about science.
    (I have no idea where "atheism/ theism" comes into it, nor "philosophy").

    Oh dear...
    Step 1) ask a seemingly-innocent (but highly uninformed) question while claiming to be scientifically-minded.
    Step 2) get answers that disagree with the pre-formed (but invoiced) opinion.
    Step 3) make unfounded assertion.
    Step 4) make false claims about how science is/ was done, repeat assertion while failing to provide any support whatsoever.
    Step 5) delete original post.

    Does that spell crank?
    Sure does.

    A prediction that vague can only come from one source.

    Clue 1: Ask a vague question about something which doesn't exist.
    Clue 2: Ask that your topic not be deleted at the detriment of everyone else.
    Clue 3: Offer no scientific support for any of your statements ...
    Clue 4: ... then claim that is how all great scientists throughout history worked.

    Hallmarks of a common crank. And a novice one, at that.

    Lord knows.

    I was being charitable and thinking that the OP was just an idiosyncratic way of describing streams of photons that would be visible (if anyone was there to observe them) from the surfaces of (planets of) neighbouring stars.

    Then I started to think about how that would look if every star we can identify had an inhabited planet orbiting it. Kittens playing with knitting would be the best analogy I could think of.

    Any star in direct line-of-sight to any other star can be said to be connected by a pillar of light, but it's a very "dreamy" sentiment and shouldn't be taken as anything more than a poetic metaphor.
