In space, no one can hear you moan...
How could you be sure, Ed? If God is All-In-All, –– as I believe He is ––, absolutely nothing escapes His attention. And yes, I am serious.
FT: It was a play on the "Alien" tag line.
Oh sorry. I'm almost illiterate when it comes to Pop Culture, Ed. Probably missing a lot, but I got turned off, probably before you were born, by the "trendy vibes" of the past sixty-two years to be exact. Hence, I'm a misfit, but frankly I'm glad of it. I go for the stuff I believe has eternal, never changing value.
Ed, the last time I made love in space, we had to lip read the moans, which has some interesting effects actually that I can't get into.
POSTED for GREATER LEGIBILITY (I couldn't read the oh-so-very-fine print)Arp 240: A Bridge between Spiral Galaxies from Hubble Image Credit: NASA, ESA, Hubble Space Telescope; Processing & Copyright: Chris KotsiopoulosExplanation: Why is there a bridge between these two spiral galaxies? Made of gas and stars, the bridge provides strong evidence that these two immense star systems have passed close to each other and experienced violent tides induced by mutual gravity. Known together as Arp 240 but individually as NGC 5257 and NGC 5258, computer modelling and the ages of star clusters indicate that the two galaxies completed a first passage near each other only about 250 million years ago. Gravitational tides not only pulled away matter, they compress gas and so caused star formation in both galaxies and the unusual bridge. Galactic mergers are thought to be common, with Arp 240 representing a snapshot of a brief stage in this inevitable process. The Arp 240 pair are about 300 million light-years distant and can be seen with a small telescope toward the constellation of Virgo. Repeated close passages should ultimately result in a merger and with the emergence of a single combined galaxy.
FT, From my younger days, I can remember those violent tides induced by mutual gravity. Those were the days my friend, we thought they'd never end...I like that last line too. :)
Outstanding! I feel obliged to mention that Galactic mergers are thought to be caused by SUVs. If you magnify the picture (and squint), you can see tiny polar bears swirling in the bridge between these two galaxies.
You may have something there DaBlade, I never heard about galactic merges prior to the invention of the SUV. Well, I'm glad those polar bears have a nice place to stay now.
It was Dr. Lewis Thomas, former director of Sloan-Kettering Cancer Research Institute in New York City, poet, and famed author of The Lives of a Cell and The Medusa and the Snail among other remarkable works of expository writing. said that in his research involving microscopic particles he found that living things were bound together "by something like affection" was the way he put it.If it weren't for Love, there could be no Life, for God, who is present everywhere in the Cosmos at all times, IS Love. He is also Life, Truth, Principle, Intelligence, Soul and Spirit. In metaphysics these seven elements are regarded as synonymous.
God has left many clues FT.
Space is cool. That's where my Ancient Alien Ancestors come from.
