The Perihelion Effect


The Significance of Holidays:

Currently, we celebrate holidays that tell of past miracles, or great historical moments in time. We have metaphors of time’s arrow, time’s cycle, death and rebirth. We relate to the cycle of time hopefully marked by belief in progress, or evolution. We anticipate a future in which things end in cataclysm or paradise. In order to progress, we must acknowledge that ideas of endings and beginnings are traditional ideas of time. Analog time created order and repetition of which the industrial revolution was born.

Circular faces of clocks were a product of technology and related to an idea of return. Lunar time and solar calendars created the grid where common time was observed. Later Digital Time, made of discrete dispassionate disposable moments with no connection to the past or future. Worst of all there is the material nihilism that pervades our world that devalues everything as meaningless. Now we believe in quantum time and cosmic time even though these concepts are imperceptible at the macro level of everyday life. Or collective consciousness embraces relativity while traveling at the speed of light, even though this abstract concept seems of negligible value in everyday life. Ideas that while interesting have no influence over the day to day.

These Are Arbitrary Antiquated Concepts Of Time. What Are The Benefits And Shortcomings? Do They Have Noticeable Effects?

“Solstice” is a Latin word, by the way, coming to English from Old French and then Middle English, and originally derived from sol sun + status, the past participle of sistere to come to a stop, cause to stand.
