Hi Guys!!…..yesterday I got a request for more info on energy…….here’s one of my favorite films and more info on the nature of energy and its possibilities………remember to click at the bottom of the paragraph to read the ENTIRE post……..such an awesome film………..enjoy guys……….doc say i’ll be back to normal in a few days………..hugs-n-smiles………..tony xx
Metaphysics and the Movies according to Dartanion2
So, have you guys seen the movie “POWDER” ? If you have, then you knew that I’d be getting to this film eventually. This film is all about the very things this blog concerns itself with. Namely, ENERGY! The picture above will give you an idea. The movie, is tailor made for this blog. A woman is pregnant as she walks down the street one evening, and she is suddenly struck by lightening. The woman dies, but not before they save the child, who is born premature. The father cannot handle the situation so the child is raised by his Grandparents, on a farm. The child grows up never seeing television or meeting anyone from the outside world. The Grandparents keep him hidden when other people around (for the most part) but he does go outside each day to do his work on the farm. He is Albino white and…

Tony asked me a while ago to write an article for him so here it is. This is about energy, the energy of the stars and the cosmos. .
TWINKLE TWINKLE LITTLE STAR.
” We are just an advanced breed of monkeys! on a minor planet of a very average star. But we can understand the Universe!! That makes us something very special ! ”
The turbulent oceon of air in which we live, thins out without any definate boundary, but by one international definition, space begins 100km ( 62 miles ) above the Earths surface. The sky beyond seems to turn around every 24 hrs – reflecting the radiation of our planet – and with the naked eye we can see the ever changing dance of our nearest naighbours, fellow members of the solar system: the Sun, the Moon, comets and five of Earths fellow planets. They move against a backdrop of about 6,000 ” fixed stars ” that maintain the same position in relation to one another. Far beyond these in the remotest cosmos, we can see just four faint patches that are galaxies beyond our own.
SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT!
The stars twinkle simply because of the constantly shifting atmosphere that their light passes through on the way to our eyes. The planets however generally do not. Although they look like points of light, the planets actually have disc`s. Lightrays from the different parts of each disc are affected differently by the moving air, and add up to give a steady image. Seen from space or from the surface of the airless Moon, neither planets nor stars actually twinkle!

THE SCALE OF THE UNIVERSE.
The distance`s we encounter in our exploration of the Universe are overwhelmingly large. Astronomas use the speed of light to make distances comprehensible. Light ( and also radio waves and all other forms of electromagnetic radiation ) is the fastest thing in the Universe. It travels at 300.000km ( 186,282 miles per second ) which means it can circle the Earth in one-seventh of a second! It travels to us from the Moon in 1.3 seconds and from the Sun in just over eight minutes! Signals from a space craft as far away as Neptune, the farthest planet! take over four hours to reach us. But light travels for many years to reach us from the stars. The distance light travels in a year is 9.5 trillion km ( 5.9 trillion miles ) and that is called a light year. The closest star is 4.2 light years away from us ( Astronomers also talk about light seconds, minutes and light hours )
Stars in the Milky Way are tens of thousands of light years away from us: other galaxies are millions of light years away from us. The farthest limits of our observability are in the intensely bright objects known as Quasars! their light takes over 11 billion years to reach us!
So next time you hear a little one singing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star! see if you can remember some of these facts and pass them on to that little one! to start their minds and imaginations working.
DUSK TO DAWN
Hot pink waves on breathless air
That stun our vision and senses.
Crimson, violet and purple hues
Seeping deep, into blue black velvet.
The sky is a palette, an artistic treasure
When the sun bids ” goodnight, it`s been my pleasure ”
She hands the reins over to diamonds, majestic.
They sparkle with colours electric.
All peacful and silent
As nothing stirs in the ink black night
Till morning breathes
With shafts of sunlight.
The sky so beautiful
A visual transition
It works hard to bring us nocturnal treasures.
