Shower Whimsey

Often when I take a shower or sit having breakfast aside a river, I cannot help but remind myself that a significant fraction of the water which I feel and see came to the Earth from Mars within the last 6,000 years, and indeed is still falling unrecognized.  Moreover, I seem to be the only one in the world who understands this fact.

Which is more amazing: the details of 3,000 years of  cyclic catastrophism which renewed the Earth and reorganized the solar system to its present form, or the fact that such monumental, consuming, cosmic encounters could be kept secret from the entire world for the last 2,710 years?  I attribute both to the LORD, who is sovereign.

It is not as if the Earth’s encounters with Venus, Mars and Mercury, its solid core, were not documented.  Almost every library (bibliothec) has an entire section devoted to Mythology, and all the myths written before 700 BC were descriptions of these cosmic bodies, their features and their motions in the heavens.

Because the water from Mars is so ‘new’, I sometimes forget that most of the water showering down and warming my body, indeed my body itself, is from the giant planet Jupiter, out of which Mars, Mercury, Earth and Venus were all formed by unique events at different dates – as evidenced by the creation of Venus only some 6,000 years ago.

Our bodies, even our minds, are formed from Jupiter and Mars stuff. Imagine – the very atoms that comprise our brains are from these two distant planets and with them we can contemplate our very origins.  What a miracle!

Awake, children – your minds can encompass entire worlds.

As Walt Whitman wrote:
This day before dawn I ascended a hill and look’d at the crowded heaven, And I said to my spirit, When we become the enfolders of those orbs, and the pleasure and knowledge of every thing in them, shall we be fill’d and satisfied then? And my spirit said No, we but level that lift to pass and continue beyond.

  1. Lee,
    Thanks for your note. I see you picked up on the Louis Frank house-sized comets. I believe that they are also the ‘dark matter’ which astrophysicists say is invisible and is passing through our bodies unrecognized – it is! This in turn is the result of their failure to understand the large elemental abundance of oxygen ‘hiding’ in the giant planets in every system and in the form of water ice crystals wherever there are concentrations of matter.

  2. John,

    Your discovery has been accepted by a few others. I’m one. You have burned the images of our planet’s past into my brain where they will reside till I die. We may still differ on the cause of these past events. But, I believe you have discovered truth that has been buried (by circumstance and human nature) for a very long time. Just as Louis Frank has identified the continued rain of small water comets on the earth so will others find pieces of the whole you have discovered.
