SLOWING THE SPEED OF LIGHT











It was great news to learn that the speed of light has finally been slowed down.



It's about time this was done.



186,000 miles per second was always way too fast.



We can still get to school on time without moving at the speed of light.



I know, we didn't ever go this fast in the first place, but now we'll worry less that we will ever have to.



We'll be able to travel slower so we don't wrinkle our clothes or pull any muscles.



If the light is slowed down even more,

we'll be able to see everything in a clearer light.



When our photon spaceships are built, we don't have to go at the speed of light, and we'll get to places slower but safer.

Good idea.

No, it's already too hot to get any warmer.

Well, it's been very cold here. So much for Global Warming.

December 24, 13:03




The dinosaurs didn't have technology.

Men do.

It is better to be prepared for the unexpected, then to be helpless like a sitting duck.

I am all for protecting the planet fROm asteroids.

And...

aliens.

Noah's Ark’: Russia to build world first DNA databank of all living things

Published time: December 26, 2014



Immortality is an idea with a future after all.

Life on the Earth will be preserved.

But who will be around to revive the dead if there is nobody left?

Oh, that's right...

Robots!

Are We Approaching the End of Human History?

September 9, 2014



I am always skeptical when I read or hear someone pronouncing and predicting the end of the world or of the human race.

This is a pessimistic position.

O Speak for yourselves, YE doomsayers!

I am on the side of human history and hope.

William Faulkner said it well:

 
I decline to accept the end of man. It is easy enough to say that man is immortal simply because he will endure: that when the last dingdong of doom has clanged and faded from the last worthless rock hanging tideless in the last red and dying evening, that even then there will still be one more sound: that of his puny inexhaustible voice, still talking.
I believe that man will not merely endure: he will prevail. He is immortal, not because he alone among creatures has an inexhaustible voice, but because he has a soul, a spirit capable of compassion and sacrifice and endurance. The poet’s, the writer’s, duty is to write about these things.

We must remember to hope when there is no hope.

We MUST embrace the light within when there is so much darkness without.

DOWN HERE OUT THERE AND INSIDE THE SOUL




 
*

The final mystery is oneself. When one has weighed the sun in the balance, and measured the steps of the moon, and mapped out the seven heavens star by star, there still remains oneself. Who can calculate the orbit of his own soul?”


Oscar Wilde



I know the human being and fish can coexist peacefully.”

George W. Bush

*



Humans.



Fish.



Exoplanets.



*



My dad did a lot of fishing.



A whole heck of a lot of fishing.



Some trout stayed in dark holes inside the deeper parts of the river, but they didn't escape his piscatorial acumen.



I was the netter, but I mostly spent my time climbing on the cactus-laden mountains.



There were very few other humans where dad fished (and I explored) because of a pulley that we rode to get across the river when it was too deep to walk across.



Dad had his fish and I had Nature.



All to ourselves.



*



I didn't pay much attention to the heavens back then.



Pine trees, mountains, and the river had much more relevance than the stars and planets above.



Space travel and outer space were not in the picture.



It was here on earth that mattered most.



We weren't concerned about our carbon footprints, just our feet.



The word terrorism never crossed our lips.



Hands held fishing poles instead of iPhones and iPads.

PITY THIS BUSY MONSTER MANUNKIND

"God...are you in there?"
 







Scientists are still looking for God, or at least for His Particles.



Why?



Why can't we just leave God and all of His Stuff alone?



I'm certain that He's quite busy.



We don't want to piss Him off (again), do we?



*



Scientists want to know too much.



How did the universe begin?



What is dark matter?





How much anti-gravity is there?



Where did the Earth get its water?



Should I have protons or neutrons for dinner?



*



Look what happened when scientists found out too much about Mr. Atom.



Yes, this gave the world nuclear power plants.



But IT also GAVE THE WORLD big, dirty, nuclear bombs.



*



Forget about colliding this and that proton.



Go TO the park and throw a Frisbee, and let its protons do SOME spinning.
