R=ka: Our Galaxy Is Spiralling Down Into The Great Attractor's Black Hole


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

Astronomers wonder about all the contridictory data concerning the time/space continuum. Tons of data flow in and makes hash of assumptions. Einstein was right, he was wrong, he was right about being wrong, actually, we have to think about our journey in time as a spiral, not a straight line. Then some things might make sense, sort of.

From the New York Times:
As Steven Weinberg of the University of Texas said, Einstein's biggest blunder was believing the cosmological constant was a blunder.

Since the 1998 discovery, astronomers have been racing to chart the history of the expansion of the universe more precisely to pin down the properties of dark energy. Observations by Dr. Riess and his colleagues with the Hubble Space Telescope two years ago have determined that the universe hit the gas pedal about five billion years ago.

Dr. Schaefer used as his mileage markers 52 gamma ray bursts, which are 100 to 1,000 times as powerful as Type 1a supernovas, and can thus be seen much farther away, or back in time. The bursts, which can be seen only from space, have been studied by satellites like the High Energy Transient Explorer, or HETE.

The most distant burst, at 12.8 billion light-years, occurred when the universe was 6 percent of its present age, Dr. Schaefer said.

His measurements put the dark energy in a controversial category named phantom energy, which if it continued unabated would rip apart the cosmos in a few billion years.
Well, we will be "ripped apart" when our little galaxy is sucked into the Great Attractor! You see, pretend we are a little bug on a wine glass. When we look at a glass, we see straight through to the other side but if we transit the exterior of the glass, it is a long journey. We can't understand how it can be curved when, from our limited view front and back, it looks pretty flat but we can see perfectly well where we were in the past and where we want to go. Thinking about our TRAVEL in time vs where we can see things today, we traveled in a vast spiral. From point A to point B. Our spiral travel is inside a mega bubble of the Big Bang. So there are two images here, the expanding balloon with all elements spiralling towards greater elements which punch ever deeper gravity pools in the fabric of the balloon.

Mother Nature absolutely loves spirals.
The logarithmic or equiangular spiral was first defined symbollically by Descartes in 1638 by the equation

r=ka

which relates the polar coordinates of any point in the spiral and expresess an exponential growth pattern. In nature it is usually associated with the growth of dead tissues forming structures, like shells of many invertebrates, corals and several horns found in mammalian species, by an accretionary process.
Ever wonder about the structure of reality? It is most marvelous. Many systems follow many laws, seems Mother Nature is a megomaniacal mathematical tinkerer. This is what "intelligent design" really means! The forms of nature repeat themselves on many levels. Hurricanes and Nautilus shells and galaxies, big and small, follow the same mathematical formula.

And if our galaxy's path through time and space left accretions like a trail, why, it wouldn't surprize me at all to see it is the same pattern a mere sea creature makes, growing progressively larger.

Mother Nature knows that simplicity creates an infinite range of effects when different materials and scales of action are applied. And She delights in this which is why we get to riddle everything out, as we learn Her many tricks, we should remember that the same things stay the same no matter how big or small. Why would the Universe "blow apart" by shooting out to nowhere when we are in a spiral down into another, greater black hole? Doesn't sound like we are going in the opposite direction, does it????

Eh?

Well, no one will listen to me. Maybe I should go back to listening to one giant black hole's B flat 5 million octaves below Middle C!

Global Warming And This Hot Winter


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

Global warming doesn't mean everyone is warm, it means a more dynamic system that stresses biological systems because it is more flexible and thus, unpredictable.

From the BBC:
The dramatic decline of some frog populations is directly connected to global warming, a new study claims.

The scientists looked at biodiversity hotspots in Central and South America, and found compelling links between frog extinctions and changes in temperature.

They believe the perfect conditions are being created for the spread of a fungus that is deadly to amphibians.
Amphibians are the canary in the mine. They are much more vulnerable to chemicals in the environment, to the effects of human waste in water systems due to everything passing directly through their skin, they are temperature sensitive due to being cold blooded animals, they are sensitive to sun radiation which means, thinning the ozone layer affects them far faster than it affects mammalian animals.

Like the krill in the sea, they are bellweathers of change and they are rapidly losing ground. I know, myself, that on the ground, casual encounters with frogs, they are far fewer today up here than years ago, for example. Even the toad population which is less sensitive to the temperatures than frogs and live well even in droughts, digging themselves in, are suffering due to lack of reliable water for reproduction which must happen in water.

The astonishingly warm winter here is also due to dynamism is the weather systems, namely, when the Jet Stream arcs and dives, it does it more radically each year so one is either very warm or really cold until the loop shifts to a new dynamic, reversing the effects, namely, it snakes across the top of the planet, ever more powerful.

Scientists have noticed the upper atmospheric winds have increased. Part of all this is due to energy from the sun being greater than normal. The polar caps on Mars have significantly reduced this last 20 years, my grandfather drew pictures of them at Lowell Observatory at the turn of the 19/20th centuries and they were one third greater in size back then. This means the sun is warming up not only the earth but the solar system.

We just entered an increased cosmic dust phase as our sun slithers through a veil of debrie in space, our galaxy has sheets and sheets of this stuff, all the cosmic dirt in the darkness of space, sucked into the black hole's gravity well, and we are part of this junk, circling the drain. The stuff moves at different speeds relative to each other and the rest of the cosmos. As they move closer to the galactic core, they encounter more and more debrie and this affects anything that does this, of course!

So in our case, this means the amount of cosmic dust showering the planet has shot up in volume, stars in dust clouds burn brighter than ones that aren't in dust clouds so perhaps our sun will increase its brilliance due to all this, we don't know everything, thanks to astronomers and all those observatories and our lovely doomed (thanks, chimpie!) Hubble Space Telescope and other monitors, we can see more and more how we fit in the cosmos and how this will impact on us human organisms which is why we need a space program!

Stuck on the home planet can be dangerous!
