L1

L1 is the place to be

Here’s a fascinating astronomical analogy to the spiritual life.

Try to imagine the best distance to remain between the worldly life and the Divine life. Too close to either will defile you or incinerate you, respectively, while you remain mortal.

Fortunately, the astronomers have answered this question already. At the Lagrangian point #1, the pull of the sun is exactly balanced by the pull of the Earth (and Moon), and the centrifugal force of the spacecraft.

Once there, one will float safely in the Sun’s cleansing radiance, yet remain close enough to Earth to make a difference there.

    However the presumption is that this equilibrium has always been stable and unchanged. Now if there are billions of years (required by Evolution) the term year becomes wrong since the Sun would be considerably larger than its present size. Mercury’s orbit would then be inside the Sun. So measuring billions of years in terms of 365 days is meaningless. Also the history of the solar system and comets astroids moons etc.. is necessary knowledge. Oh and the history of the galaxy will also be vital because of galectic forces on the solar system.
    It was Dr Crick (DNA spiral) who considered that Life couldn’t have eveolved on earth but must have come from deep space! In other words presumptions over genetic change over billuions of years is a flight of speculative fancy.
    These presumptions over the solar system, the galaxy and theories put across a certainties plagues science.
    Our Lord had problems 2000 years ago human reasoning when faced with Truth crucified Truth!

    Dear Brother your simple analogy highlights the glaring simply presumptions consistently made by popular science.
