Earth Centered Solar System (is not wrong!)

A building on my campus.. not exactly sure what a satellite applications catapult is, but it sounds awesome!

The Earth orbits around the sun… so we are told.

It just fits so much better with what we observe than the thought that the Sun orbits around the Earth….

If we think about this deeply, we can realize that any thing… a star like our sun, a planet like our Earth, any object, can be seen to be stationary and the whole Universe in flux around it. Thinking like this, we can model our solar system so that the Earth is the center and does not move. Everything in the Universe moves around the Earth, or at least moves away or towards it…. That model of reality can work. It can be used to make predictions and can be useful. Now, equally, we can model our solar system with the sun at the center, unmoving, and everything in motion about it. This fits much easier with what is observed, makes better predictions and makes much more sense. That said, it is still just a model, and not the Truth.

When people talk about ‘finding your center’ and ‘being grounded’….. what do they mean? Do they even know themselves? Lol. Do you own something that is unmoving? Can you? Is it even possible? What is it that is reborn if reincarnation does not exist?

So, what is in your center? Can it actually contain anything at all? If it does, can those contents remain unchanging? For how long? At what point does the flux of its contents make it no longer your center?

Do you actually have a center in the first place?

Find your center, then let it go… it wasn’t yours anyhow…. and who knows,  you just may find an iron mountain in your belly.
