Sometimes it’s fun to wander through someone else’s past.
That’s what I did this evening, and lo, I found a fun post about the moon and the universe and rocks. You will have a good time reading this too. It’s one of those posts that pop up on the bottom of a different post. Rethinking Life is sooooo interesting! Thanks for the smile!
If you listen to scientists talk about planets and moons, gravity and all the rest. you will hear them say, “The Moon was trapped, captured by Neptune’s gravity.”
Trapped and captured. When I hear that, or read it, I immediately feel sorry for the moon, since it was TRAPPED and CAPTURED without it’s permission. I mean, it was floating around, minding it’s own business, and suddenly, it’s in ORBIT around a planet.
I’m thinking the moon is a rock, and probably doesn’t care, but still…those are bad words…trapped and captured. I don’t know what other words we could use, since the moon, or rock, was just passing by on it’s way to someplace else, but by passing too close to a planet, it became a prisoner.
Which, makes me realize that everything is a prisoner of everything else. Things are always capturing our attention, or trapping us in dead end…
