Imagine the Earth spinning around the Sun just bit faster. Our orbit would drift a little farther from the Sun. Our climate would change. It would get cooler. Then, sooner or later, the centrifugal force would tear us away from the Sun’s attraction, and we’d drift off into space. Into the never-never of the near-absolute-zero domain.
Hell would freeze over.
On the other hand, we might be hit by an asteroid. Or comet. Our orbital velocity might slow down. We’d drift closer and closer to the Sun. It would get warmer By the time we’d get closer to Venus, our world would become uncomfortable. The average temperature on Venus is 462o Celsius (864o Fahrenheit). Our atmosphere would turn almost completely to carbon dioxide and the picturesque clouds would consist of sulfuric acid.
Images of Hell?
In fact, our present orbit is the only orbit where we might continue living a bit longer.
Because the centrifugal and centripetal forces sustain us in a perfect balance. There is no good or evil involved. No punishment or reward. No heaven or hell.
Just perfect balance.
Equilibrium is the only state, the only condition, which assures our survival. And this brings me to the present tantrums on this Valley of Tears.
Equilibrium must be maintained in ALL aspect of ALL realities in which we find our becoming. We have a good example of what happens when men abuse their physical strength in relation to women. Sooner or later nature will put her foot down, and women will rise in opposition. They will say enough is enough.
Women will restore the balance.
Hopefully, for a while they’d maintain it or…
Unfortunately, as we all know, power corrupts. That’s what happened to men.
The moment women realize that they can do as they please, they’ll keep pushing men away from the trough of power. Soon, greed will be born, then grow, then wield its ugly head. They will go well past the stage of the indispensible balance and be unable to stop. Once tasted, power has a euphoric attraction. It is an aphrodisiac like no other.
Once again the balance will shift too far…
Guess what will happen.
In human life, as in all aspect of physical realities, equilibrium must be maintained. It is that Straight and Narrow path, the tremulous Event Horizon, that assures the survival of the phenomenal (or any other) reality. We are free to experiment, to try our luck, but if we drift too far in ANY direction, the Universal Laws will activate the restoration of balance.
Life is an ongoing process of movement and change. We advance by trial and error.
There is no good or evil, no punishment or reward. No carrot—no stick. No Hell nor Heaven. With or without men’s or women’s approval… These are all human inventions. Regardless of our likes or dislikes:
Equilibrium will be restored and sustained.
For as long as possible.
And then we’ll start all over again!
