The Perihelion Effect

The first Founding Father Made the Perihelion Famous

Fact: John Hancock delayed the signing of the Declaration of Independence by at least one day so that it would fall on July 4th.

What is the significance?

On June 7, 1776, a proposal to declare the American colonies an independent nation was submitted to the Second Continental Congress by Richard Henry Lee of Virginia. … Congress approved American independence on July 2, 1776, and the Declaration of Independence was agreed to two days later on July 4.
Speculation: Could it have been a secret masonic rite to coincide with the Aphelion?
Is this an intentional association or conicedental? A day one could say when the planet is furthest from the Oppression of the Solar Deity.  A statement of the relationship between the sun and freedom?


For the past few days I have been trying to put together a blog post about the coincidence that July 4th and the day of celebrating U.S.A. independence from monarchy are related.  But I have not been able to get it done.  Perhaps the malaise of the season is consistent with the hypothesis that the perceptual passage of time is altered during these first weeks of greatest distance from the sun.  The difference in moment-to-moment change in velocity is least when furthest from the sun so it makes sense.

The usual manic rush of six months ago is hardly apparent. My inter-personal stresses and the internal agitations seem very far from the New Years baseline average.

Do you notice it?  Have you kept track of your emotions and moods over the course of the previous 180 days?  Do you perceive a general shifting energy since the perihelion?

Do you subjective moods and feelings have a basis in material reality?

These questions are valid now at the time of farthest opposition as they were at the perihelion. Keeping the fluctuating baseline seems key to communicating the subjective experience into relatable paradigm.

Question: What are the limits of subjectivity?
