There is something lovely about the dialogue of Finnegans where the dialogue goes from internal to Universal, from the historical to the local like a rhyme that is strangely familiar and unfamiliar and spoken by a thousand characters -


" Try not to part! Be happy, dear ones! May I be wrong! For she'll be sweet for you as I was sweet when I came down out of me mother. My great blue bedroom, the air so quiet, scarce a cloud. In peace and silence. I could have stayed up there for always only. It's something fails us. First we feel. Then we fall. And let her rain now if she likes. Gently or strongly as she likes. Anyway let her rain for my time is come. I done me best when I was let. Thinking always if I go all goes. A hundred cares, a tithe of troubles and is there one who understands me? One in a thousand of years of the nights? All me life I have been lived among them but now they are becoming lothed to me. And I am lothing their little warm tricks. And lothing their mean cosy turns. And all the greedy gushes out through their small souls. And all the lazy leaks down over their brash bodies. How small it's all! And me letting on to meself always. And lilting on all the time. I thought you were all glittering with the noblest of carriage. You're only a bumpkin. I thought you the great in all things, in guilt and in glory." James Joyce, Finnegans Wake

These things were on the lips of those entering the gas chambers or those in creative/productive realm where the person lives out their lives where everything is both broad and short, immense and tiny , chaotic and ordered, general and detailed as both a curse and an source of joy. In the end there is a beginning where all things are new hence the first line in the video joins with the last line in the book -

Enjoy...


Zzzzzz. Huh? Really? Ruin my Thanksgiving holiday by watching 90
minutes of cliched, slo-mo video of the Earth from space? Are you that
desperate for entertainment? 'Cuz I'm not.

I agree with almost everything that you have said and almost everything that
you will say in your entire life.

Visiting this guy's website is like being stung in the face .

http://www.primordial-light.com/scienceis.html#cold

So let's see what he makes of astronomy -

"Science deals with assertions and observations about the World that can be tested and either verified or falsified."

If people are going to run after mathematicians then the rules are that a fact or axiom exists to be proved. The fact is the Earth turns once based on the observation of sunrise/noon/sunset event where the Sun appears to circle the Earth each day.

If people want to prove the axiom that the Earth runs a circuit of the Sun then the observation is that the Sun appears to move through a circuit of the constellations every 365 1/4 days.

It is unlikely that people here will choke on their turkey dinner when encountering an attempt to use the observation for the proof of daily rotation and transfer it to orbital motion. That bad taste in people's mouths is not bad turkey but an enormous waste of time and energy directed at astronomical insights that do not take a holiday because people are unable to recognise them -

"That the fixed stars being at rest, the periodic times of the five primary planets, and (whether of the sun about the earth, or) of the earth about the sun, are in the sesquiplicate proportion of their mean distances from the sun.... for the periodic times are the same, and the dimensions of the orbits are the same, whether the sun revolves about the earth, or the earth about the sun." Newton

Give thanks that we can see our planet from space and to the spiritual/inspirational background against which those motions are encompassed by giving life to its inhabitants, even miserable ones like this old nuisance.

Get serious. five seconds at the beginning, five seconds inside, about
two seconds toward the end to confirm the duration and that it was the
same boring crap all the way. Still, add the time clicking your link
(won't do that again!) and the like and that was nearly a full minute
of my life wasted. My fault, not yours.
