The human brain can unconsciously respond to changes in Earth’s magnetic fields, according to a team of geoscientists and neurobiologists. This interdisciplinary study revives a research area in neuroscience that has remained dormant for decades. (1)
We used to believe we can sense the cosmos.
We used to have astrology and religion.
Now we have astronomy and science.
And we are surprised to learn that we are one with the universe.
We can still sense it. But we cannot understand why.
We still dream at night. But it makes us worry that something is not right.
Astronomy is the bastard child of astrology and religion.
Seeing nothing where its parents saw everything.
And all it wants is to kill it’s parents.
Stars moving. People walking. Bird singing. Babies crying.
We see the surface of the cosmos without wanting to accept that there is depth in the ocean we travel on. At some point even astronomy will know it all. And it will be able to see all the gears making the world go round. And at that point of great triumph, it will see they are moving only because we have our hands on them.
And our laughter will echo through the cosmos.
And even for a fleeing moment.
Everything will stop.
And for the first time…
The cosmos will start sensing us…
And with rejoice, the universe will whisper.
