Wormholes > 01/12/16


A wormhole also called Einstein-Rosen bridge is a passage, a “hypothetical topological feature that would fundamentally be a shortcut connecting two separate points in spacetime. A wormhole, in theory, might be able to connect extremely far distances such as a billion light years or more, short distances such as a few feet, different universes, and different points in time. A wormhole is much like a tunnel with two ends, each at separate points in spacetime” (Wikipedia).

But, as the guys at space dot com warns us: “be wary: wormholes bring with them the dangers of sudden collapse, high radiation and dangerous contact with exotic matter.”

Time’s a strange thing

Time, such a strange thing. The clock ticks along marking time in discrete units as years pass by, dots on a line from then to now and further on, which is the stuff of stories and narratives and history, but the undercurrent of time takes no notice. No, the undercurrent of time takes no notice of history, nor of the stories we tell. The undercurrent of time takes its own path, on a road less travelled.

Science says time is an extension in space and science says space is warped. So, if time is an extension in space AND space is warped, then time is warped. Pure logic.

the metaphor of the conjugal bed > 18/05/05

Is the marriage of binary opposites such as heaven and hell, male and female the reconciliation of (wo)man? Is the goal of (wo)man to reconcile with the man and the woman in her/him and thereby to take over the conjugal bed of his/her father and mother which in its turn brings forth the birth of something completely new, that is to say, their child? In other words, is the integrational process of these binary opposites and the child in becoming our coming into our own?
