Dark Matter – A Galactic Muse

Dark matter theory (DMT) presumes that our Milky Way Galaxy, of which the Earth’s solar system is relatively a microscopic constituent, is spinning outwardly like a pinwheel when the evidence, the need to identify dark matter, suggests that it’s more likely that the Milky Way is spiraling, notwithstanding a recently discovered central bulge, as if into a whirlpool, into the supermassive black hole in its center.

Despite the fact that it’s popularly believed that our black hole is too small and weak to affect worlds so far out as Earth the sought-after dark matter mass may more aptly be found within the black hole where dark matter belongs.

I wonder how the gravitational prowess of our black hole is presumed to be measured as insufficiently influential when countless solar systems, stars and planets have disappeared down its gullet for time beyond measure?  It’s more likely that attempted measurements have been too small.

Galactus – Eater of Worlds

Martyan Torus Theory hypothesizes that the Milky Way galaxy is not only spinning like a wheel but also spinning concentrically inward.  What little matter the galaxy throws off at the outer rims of its spiral arms will only likely work its way back inward in the fullness of time to resume its inevitable inwardly rotating spiral.

Any sustained natural vortex necessitates that an outlet must exist.  If our black hole is the ingress to the center of the torus then there must also be an outlet for the tremendous energy at some unknown distance most probably concentric with the center of our black hole.  Would the depth of such a torus resemble a dimpled orange, a bagel, or a donut?  It could be challenging to locate a concentric outlet-like phenomenon at an unknown distance particularly if we don’t exactly know what it looks like other than expulsive energy equal to that of the Milky Way’s supermassive black hole.  It may be easier to identify a toroidal outlet following the gravitation concentrically opposite to some other remote galaxy.

New stars and planets are being born in our solar system all the time.  Is it possible that the raw materials first circumnavigate the long journey around the outer circumference of a great torus?

Being Galactus intolerant is a waste of time. One option is to just ride the spiral inward facing it head on like the Silver Surfer.

Cowabunga and Amen!

Another alternative would be, with faster-than-light travel, to explore, most efficiently, for new worlds outward from the center  of the galaxy along the Orion Spur or the Persius Arm. (See galaxy map at top)

Either way, enjoy the ride!


Greed Vs. Largesse

The modern conservative is not even especially modern. He is engaged, on the contrary, in one of man’s oldest, best financed, most applauded, and, on the whole, least successful exercises; One of the last is most often cited: “The modern conservative is engaged in one of man’s oldest exercises in moral philosophy, that is the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness. It is an exercise which always involves a certain number of internal contradictions and even a few absurdities. The conspicuously wealthy turn up urging the character-building value of privation for the poor.”
– John Kenneth Galbraith   [“Stop the Madness,” Interview with Rupert Cornwell, Toronto Globe and Mail (6 Jul 2002)]

In counterpoint to “trickle-down economics” the theory has historically previously been branded as the “horse and sparrow theory” of the 1890’s whereby “If you feed the horse enough oats, some will pass through for the sparrows” as well as “The rich pissing on the poor” by a New Zealand labour MP.  These gross caricatures of elimination, unkind treatment and condescension, even if inelegant, aren’t inaccurate. Keynesian and other theories claim that tax cuts for the wealthy aren’t used for productive investing but rather for personal gain.  2012 research, by the Tax Justice Network verifies that the wealth of the ultra wealthy doesn’t trickle down to improve the economy but amasses and shelters in tax havens with a negative effect on the tax base of the entire home economy.  Professor Ha-Joon Chang sites examples of “slowing job growth in the last few decades, rising income inequality in most rich nations, and the inability provision in raising living standards across all income brackets rather than at the top only”

“The privileged have regularly invited their own destruction with their greed.”
– John Kenneth Galbraith, The Age of Uncertainty

“One blueprint for trouble, making collapse likely, is when there’s a conflict of interest between the short term interest of the decision-making elite and the long-term interests of society as a whole especially if the elite are able to insulate themselves from the consequences of their actions.  Where what’s good for the short run for the elite is bad for the society as a whole, there’s a real risk that the elite will do something bad to bring society down in the long run…Those same issues, of a conflict of interest, are acute in the United States today especially because the elite decision-makers are able to isolate themselves from the consequences of their actions…In the last couple of years it’s been obvious that the elite in the business world correctly perceive that they can advance their short-term interests by doing things that are good for them but bad for society as a whole.”  – Jared Diamond on Why Societies Collapse

It’s not money but, more to the point, selfishness that’s the root of evil.  (See Intent)

“Know, self is the only excuse.  Self is the only sin; that is, selfishness, and all the others, are just a modification of that expression of the ego.” – Edgar Cayce 1362-1

Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, T. Boone Pickens, Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg, are among 125 of the world’s wealthiest individuals who have signed The Giving Pledge thereby becoming the best possible personal/corporate role models by dedicating the majority of their wealth to philanthropy.  To other wealthy candidates this doesn’t necessarily mean that protracted harm to society can be karmically assuaged by a charitable bequest – but it’s better than naught.

The Answer



Men Vs. Women

Modern metaphysical thought has posited that there’s a female self within men and a male self within women.  I’ve long resented the fact that the female side of ourselves is characterized as having all the best attributes; ie. love and compassion.  I know myself enough to know that there’s evidence (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, ) that I at least cogitate these attributes more often than many.  “Just because women nurture children…”, I’ve thought, “…doesn’t mean that woman can lay claim to these attributes as characteristically their own.”

Moreover I had already hypothesized, during a university television theory course, that the primary difference between the way that men and women think, based on what they watched on TV, originates in their genitals.  I wasn’t wrong.  The biggest difference between men and women physiologically is the gonads of their powerful endocrine system.  This is the base chakra in spiritual parlance and oft erroneously regarded to be, like porn, the “lowest”.  It’s life itself and a powerful driver.*

The difference, in television viewing preference, between men and women is that men primarily watch the news and women, while I don’t personally know any, primarily watch soap operas.

A soap opera that I, as a young man, thoroughly enjoyed was St. Elsewhere for the artistry of the “ensemble” medical soapistry amidst 5 intertwined story lines.  At least one story must be comedic in an ensemble series.  Hill Street Blues was another that I enjoyed.

News stories are sound bites that are always conclusive whether or not the story is ongoing.  On the other, left, hand soap operas have never-ending stories wherein, even if one story line ends, it leads into another one.  Men are are linear and conclusive, and women are cyclic.  (Cyclic is “Big Picture”.)  I’ve heard this iterated, from pop psychology books, most often in the form of arguments between partners; Men seek a happy conclusion with all due diligence and women are seeking something more continuous.  (Put your arm around her and sympathize.  Love is necessary.)

Above I wrote: “Just because women nurture children…”, I’ve thought, “…that doesn’t mean that woman can lay claim to these (love & compassion) attributes as characteristically their own.”.

I’ve been wrong. Love and BIG PICTURE are more strongly in the purview of women because men are influenced more by their left cerebral hemisphere.

In my Getting In Our Right Mind post I wrote that the left hemisphere finds conclusions even if it deduces for you as real possibilities things that may not even exist.  It’s also that same little negative voice that sometimes berates you.  The left hemisphere is also incapable of seeing the simplest “Big Picture”.

The right hemisphere exclusively has capacity of vision to see the “Big Picture” as well as the capacity for, among other emotions, “Love”.   Both are supremely significant factors. The right side is the correct side in the great on-going universal battle of Life Vs Entropy.  “We” Vs “I”.  The right hemisphere is “Life”and “We” and “Love” and “Big Picture” and “Music” and “Creativity” and “Nature”.


In my Science and Spirituality post I wrote that, according to Edgar Cayce, BIG PICTURE (We are One) and LOVE are the the 2 most fundamental Universal Laws and are as irrevocable as laws of physics.   Women, being more right hemisphered, are more in tune with both of these positive attributes albeit the love can become obfuscated amidst the panoply of all the other more greatly felt emotions.  Left-brained conclusive men once thought to offer a cure for this condition in the assumption that hysteria resided in the uterus and therefore inventing the hysterectomy to remove it.  Very thoughtful but not “Big Picture” or loving enough.

I subscribe to the following belief and don’t recall where the theory was garnered:

We are immortal and essentially generally retain the same gender over many lifetimes.  Homosexuality arises when we choose a lifetime of the opposite gender than that which humans are intended to be.  Women primarily make this choice due to the obvious discrimination of the last 2000 years and men primarily chose this due to the horrors of war.

According to Edgar Cayce one individual returned for a lifetime as a gay man who had once terribly publicly ridiculed, as a cartoonist, the gay men of the French courts of Louis XIII and Louis XIV; a noteworthy consequence for gay bashers.

“Condemn not, then, that ye be not condemned. For indeed with what measure ye mete it will be measured to thee again. And that thou condemnest in another (yea, every man – every woman), that thou becomest in thine self!” – Edgar Cayce 1089-3

I believe that the genders will fully come together at a later epoch in our collective development and “when” is likely highly dependent on how much we come together now. It’s inevitable if we’re all to eventually reunite in God.  Reuniting our genders as One is a long-term imperative and, IMO, a powerful first chakra driven incentive towards the ultimate “One” realization.

It’s incumbent on men to learn to know the BIG PICTURE and greater LOVE.  I wouldn’t presume to suggest what women need to know.  Women use both brain hemispheres.

30. (Q) Is there something spiritual in the attraction between the sexes (as I suspect), or would it be to advantage if I repressed the constant quest for a beautiful girl companion?
(A) There is something spiritual, which is being, as has been indicated, a co-creator with the divine.  – Edgar Cayce 5250-1


* Note: In modern times there has developed a top-down exercise for “grounding” one’s chakras.  In martial arts strength is gathered arising from the Earth through the base chakra.  The Lord’s Prayer, according to Edgar Cayce, a devout Christian, is a dance through the chakras starting and finishing with the top chakra:

Our Father who art in Heaven = For Thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory, forever and forever
