Being part of the natural world

 

 

Being part of the natural world reminds me
that innocence isn’t ever lost completely;
we just need to maintain our goodness to regain it.

Escape from torturing memories

“I have absolutely no pleasure in the stimulants in which I sometimes so madly indulge.
It has not been in the pursuit of pleasure that I have periled life and reputation and reason.
It has been the desperate attempt to escape from torturing memories, from a sense of insupportable loneliness and a dread of some strange impending doom.”
~ Edgar Allan Poe

Jupiter’s Irregular Satellites

The planet Jupiter has 67 confirmed moons. This gives it the largest retinue of moons with “reasonably secure” orbits of any planet in the Solar System. In fact, Jupiter and its moons are like a miniature solar system with the inner moons orbiting faster than the others. Eight of Jupiter’s moons are regular satellites, with prograde and nearly circular orbits that are not greatly inclined with respect to Jupiter’s equatorial plane. The remainder of Jupiter’s moons are irregular satellites, whose prograde and retrograde orbits are much farther from Jupiter and have high inclinations and eccentricities. These moons were probably captured by Jupiter from solar orbits. There are 17 recently discovered irregular satellites that have not yet been named.

Some strange impending doom

The Big Crunch Theory

 

The Big Crunch Theory.

The Big Crunch is one possible scenario for the ultimate fate of the Universe. Just like many others, it is based on Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity. That is, if the Big Bang describes how the Universe most possibly began, the Big Crunch describes how it will end as a consequence of that beginning. In this theory, the metric expansion of space eventually reverses and the Universe recollapses, ultimately causing the cosmic scale factor to reach zero or causing a reformation of the Universe starting with another Big Bang.

If you want to know the past

 


“If you want to know the past,
to know what has caused you,
look at yourself in the PRESENT,
for that is the past’s effect.

If you want to know your future,
then look at yourself in the PRESENT,
for that is the cause of the future.”

… so worthwhile

We are at our very best, and we are happiest, when we are fully engaged in work we enjoy on the journey toward the goal we’ve established for ourselves.
It gives meaning to our time off and comfort to our sleep. It makes everything else in life so wonderful, so worthwhile.
