The universe is expanding, everything moves away from Earth at an increasing rate.
Earth is becoming more isolated, lonelier.
There are 7 billion people on Earth, 361 million on the web.
We are more connected than ever.
Our heat leaves us; our light leaves us, our moon, our stars, our everything, expanding at 74.3 km/sec/3 million light years.
In 100 billion years atoms begin to tear apart.
Dark energy pushes us further and further and further. Dark Energy, something scientist know exists but they don’t know what it is.
The numbers seem important but they don’t make sense. They are baffling.
7 billion people, 361 million people, 74.3 km/sec/3 million light years
The Beatles sang about it in “Eleanor Rigby.”
“All the lonely people where do they all come from?”
Physicists speculate that the universe will end via this accelerated expansion., Ending in a dark chill , that’s what I call it..
Plato wrote about it, how men and women were once one being, one organism.
Those that were half man half woman were the androgynous but there were also beings of two men or of two women.
Believing they were more powerful, the beings attacked the gods who made them. And Zeus split them in two as punishment.
Our bodies, souls, thoughts, the atoms that make us, divided forever.
The lonely come from the time of the dark chill.
When they arrive at this time on Earth they still feel the void even though they are surrounded.
They are surrounded by people by light, warmth, stars but this life is not what they know, those Eleanor Rigby’s.
They have never seen another person or even themselves, so they remain in that void, still moving blankly in the dark.
