Recommended Listening: Quasar by The Smashing Pumpkins 

Metastasis; noun, plural me·tas·ta·ses [-seez]

1.Pathology. a: the transference of disease-producing organisms or of malignant or cancerous cells to other parts of the body by way of the blood or lymphatic vessels or membranous surfaces. b: the condition produced by this.
2. transformation.
3. Rhetoric. a rapid transition, as from one subject to another.
4. Physics. a change in position or orbit of an elementary particle.

Since this process of transformative transference occurs at both the sub-atomic and cellular levels, it stands to reason that a Macro-Galactic version must also exist. The recent astronomical discovery of an exceptionally Large Quasar Group appears to represent said possibility.
There we can observe over 70 supermassive black holes and luminous galactic cores interspersing as far across as 4 billion light years. This conglomerate matter comprises perhaps 5% of the entire known cosmos; stupendous figures by any reckoning. So much insight may be derived simply by gazing long and hard into this turbulent spectrum.

But back to the matter at hand: are these quasars in the process of metastasizing? And if so, what might that mean for us here in the Milky Way? Apart from helping to detail our solar system's past, it may also hold clues regarding the ultimate fate of Hunab-Ku (the Mayan name for our own galactic center).

What if human constituents were to meet again within a far-future quasar? Perhaps then base elements could be elevated beyond their humble mediocrity; carbon coal transmuted to glowing gold!

The Nature of Nothing

The Nature of Nothing

There is no such thing as "No-Thing"
For that which does not exist
Can in no way be said to have presence
In other words, Nothing does not exist!

These may seem blatant statements of the obvious
But the prevalence of double-negatives
In regular speech is a clear indicator
That such statements aren't actually understood.

Nothing seems to be a lot harder to think about
Merely by virtue of its being an absence, a void
So we inadvertently reify it as a "Sum-Thing"
Bringing us back around full-circle to square zero ...
