Jean-Felix Picard was a French astronomer, priest, and the first person
to measure the size of the Earth to a reasonable degree of accuracy.
Isaac Newton was to use this value in his theory of universal gravitation.
We live in a changing universe, and few things are changing faster than our perception of it.
Jean Luc Picard
Today the window I blogged about early last week - from July 17-21 - closes. It's certainly has been a bumpy ride for many people - including MH17 - creating a whole new set of dramas. This particular grid seems to have made a sharp 90° left turn. To me, when white light is bent at a 90° angle things disappear.
Light bending may refer to:
gravitational lensing, when light is "bent" around a massive object
refraction, a change in direction of a wave due to a change in its speed
On the last day of Cancer (water) - "walk" to the end of the pier.
Close your eyes.
Hold the negative afterimage in your thoughts.
What do you see?
You think of your life as a story. MRI studies show us that following a story - a narrative with a beginning, middle, and end - causes our brains to release cortisol and oxytocin. These chemicals give us the unique human ability to connect with someone - even a total stranger - and empathize. Stories are what we use to bring meaning to our lives.
Now imagine, for a moment, that we live without the understanding that our story must eventually end. What if our lives were as infinite as the universe, if the ticking clock never stopped. What would our story be then? Would we still love or care? Would those tiny fleeting moments that mean everything - mean anything at all?
It's all about perception ....
