THE TIME OF MY LIFE

THE TIME OF MY LIFE If I could travel back into times past to see the truth of history and such, I don’t think I would want my stay to last. I simply couldn’t stand to stay there much. The future, many generations hence, would only make me want to return here. Where once I […]

TIME’S ARCHERY

TIME’S ARCHERY   Time’s passage changes with velocity and near a strong gravitational field. Mass and speed show full reciprocity — their equivalence now clearly revealed. If we accept that the Big Bang occurred, and matter was once infinitely dense, this measure alone would prove it absurd for time to pass. It just would not […]

Morphed

  Masons Road joy poetry MORPHED The blissful butterfly seems unconcerned, while sipping nectar, flitting with its mate, but it remembers everything it learned when caterpillar seemed its only fate. When it could merely inch along and feed to saturate its flesh with pungency of bitter leaves – a deft defense, indeed, from predators from […]

DARK GRAVITY

DARK GRAVITY The speed of light’s the limit, so we hold, as frequencies get stretched past infrared, and all the universe is growing cold a process that apparently has sped almost impossibly since it began because expansion should reduce its vim, and gravity should be custodian and sweep together, not its antonym. Thermodynamics on the […]

TIME DILATION

TIME DILATION   They say that Time flies when you’re having fun, but the real reason Time flies is boredom. If something interesting is being done, Time will slow down to sluggish minimum.   Do something noteworthy, like speed light-fast or amass a gravitational sphere, and Time will dawdle rather than rush past, as if […]

TOPPING THE STAR CHARTS

In 1977, a recording of “Liu Shui” (流水; Stream), as performed by Guan, was chosen to be included in the Voyager Golden Record, a gold-plated LP recording containing music from around the world, which was sent into outer space by NASA on the Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 spacecraft. It is the longest excerpt included on the disc (lasting seven minutes and […]

UNABLE TO PULL IT TOGETHER

UNABLE TO PULL IT TOGETHER   No particle known is unaffected by gravity’s inexorable force, but, perhaps it was not yet perfected at the Big Bang, which was everything’s source. The entire mass of the Universe lacked the density to form a black hole but instead expanded, which seems perverse, as though gravity failed to […]

MODERN NONCHALANCE

  MODERN NONCHALANCE The Sun King at his zenith prominence never knew how luxurious this feels. His lavish carriage conveyed opulence, but bumped down cobbled roads on wooden wheels. He’d have to let the horses rest and eat each journey, at least twice; it was no race, and … silent mostly, but for the hoof […]

RESEARCH GUIDELINES

  RESEARCH GUIDELINES Throughout investigative history, a basic principle has long held sway: When we unravel Nature’s mystery, complexity’s the first to fall away. Upon one underpinning postulate, succinctly balanced, we’ve come to expect all facts that we’ve observed should always fit, with math that’s both appealing and correct. Proposing supposed significance, unless our models […]

THE UNIVERSE IS IN PERFECT HEALTH

THE UNIVERSE IS IN PERFECT HEALTH A team of international scientists used several of the world’s most powerful telescopes to perform the most comprehensive assessment of the energy output in the nearby universe, concluding that today’s produced energy is only about half of what it was two billion years-ago and prompting claims that the universe […]
