“Will either of these galaxies survive? In what might be dubbed as a semi-final round in a galactic elimination tournament, the two spirals of NGC 7318 are colliding. The featured picture was created from images taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. *Click image for larger size.* When galaxies crash into each other, many things may happen including gravitational distortion, gas condensing to produce new episodes of star formation, and ultimately the two galaxies combining into one.

Chet Raymo, “Non-overlapping?”

noreply@blogger.com (CoyotePrime) at Running 'Cause I Can't Fly - 15 minutes ago
*“Non-overlapping?”* by Chet Raymo “Let me posit a difference between religion and science: Religion: Future>Present>Past Science: Past>Present>Future. Let me explain. Religion, as it has traditionally been understood in its institutional guise, begins with the dream of a comforting future. An escape from the apparently inescapable reality of death. Which impacts our daily lives in the present. Determines, for example, codes of morality, inspires great deeds of goodness or mayhem. Mandates rites and rituals. Appease the gods and live forever.

*"On Friendship"* by Kahlil Gibran "Your friend is your needs answered. He is your field which you sow with love and reap with thanksgiving. And he is your board and your fireside. For you come to him with your hunger, and you seek him for peace. When your friend speaks his mind you fear not the "nay" in your own mind, nor do you withhold the "ay." And when he is silent your heart ceases not to listen to his heart; For without words, in friendship, all thoughts, all desires, all expectations are born and shared, with joy that is unacclaimed. When you part from your friend, you grieve no... more »

"Rise to the occasion! Never let anyone tell you that you lack courage or conviction to see your tasks done. The only opinion that really matters is your own, and you are a creature of courage and strength, through and through. Never, ever forget that. So in the midst of the storm, stand proud against it, lift up your middle finger, and defy the fates with everything you have. If they want to fight, bring it. You have more than enough intelligence and skill to battle them until they beg you for mercy." - Sherrilyn Kenyon

Julian Assange: Murdered DNC Staffer Was Behind WikiLeaks Dump

Baxter Dmitry at Your News Wire - 43 minutes ago
The message from Julian Assange could not have been clearer – Seth Rich was the whistleblower behind the internal DNC leak that led to the recent Wikileaks email dump, and he was murdered by the ruling party in retribution. Unlike some players in the 2016 election season, Assange is articulate and doesn’t leave room for misinterpretation or twisting of his words. He communicates as though using a stylus, the sharp pointed steel pencil used by ancient Romans – for writing and stabbing. Speaking on Dutch news program Nieuwsuur yesterday, Assange offered $20,000 for information leading... more »

"Dreams And Stars..."

noreply@blogger.com (CoyotePrime) at Running 'Cause I Can't Fly - 21 hours ago
"I've heard fate talked of. It's not a word I use. I think we make our own choices. I think how we live our lives is our own doing, and we cannot fully hope on dreams and stars. But dreams and stars can guide us, perhaps. And the heart's voice is a strong one. Always is.Your heart's voice is your true voice. It is easy to ignore it, for sometimes it says what we'd rather it did not- and it is so hard to risk the things we have. But what life are we living, if we don't live by our hearts? Not a true one. And the person living it is not the true you." - Susan Fletcher

*"Splendor"* One day it's the clouds, one day the mountains. One day the latest bloom of roses- the pure monochromes, the dazzling hybrids- inspiration for the cathedral's round windows. Every now and then there's the splendor of thought: the singular idea and its brilliant retinue- words, cadence, point of view, little gold arrows flitting between the lines. And too the splendor of no thought at all: hands lying calmly in the lap, or swinging a six iron with effortless tempo. More often than not splendor is the star we orbit without a second thought, especially as it arrives and de... more »
