What is a planet?
From its beginnings denoting the "wandering stars"
of the classical world, the definition of planet has been
fraught with ambiguity. In its long life, the word has meant many
different things, often simultaneously. Over the millennia, use of
the term was never strict and its meaning has twisted and blurred
to include or exclude a variety of different objects, from the Sun
and the Moon to satellites and asteroids. As knowledge of the
universe grew, the word planet grew and changed with it,
casting off old meanings and adopting new ones, though never
arriving at a single, concrete definition.
Sounds like Astronomy 101, but the question of what is it that we
walk on everyday has a much deeper meaning. We take for granted the
sphere of land and water orbiting our sun. We even commit a gross
disservice when we mistakenly call the Earth ‘the World.’ What is it
that we have come to call the EARTH? What are its
neighbors that also orbit in exact ellipses throughout what we have
named the Solar System? What are they…really? The true
(spiritual), extra-worldly, inter-dimensional answer is something
incredible and beyond what we have named or think of as a mere ‘planet.’
Orbiting habitats; circling life-giving SUNS of heat and light.
What are suns? What are these strange systems of celestial bodies?
What are they…REALLY; meaning: in the greater scheme of
things in the Universe? What are galaxies, clusters of galaxies,
universes and the whole SHEBANG for that matter?
The point is…when we say ‘planet,’ we have no clue what we are
saying. For lack of a better term or for not knowing what this
big/round ‘thinga-ma-bob’ actually is, we will call it…PLANET…I
One clue could be to find the charge of the planet. We discover
that the Earth has a negative, electrical charge. Yet, our
sun has a positive charge. Does this scenario sound familiar?
Here we have bodies in space with a negative charge in precise
orbits circling a positively charged center. The grand mystery as to
the question of cosmic bodies could lay in the simple idea of atoms
and molecules. What are solar systems? They are different
compositions of molecular structures. Vast cosmic bodies in
space and infinitesimally small, atomic ‘quanta’ are the same!
Others have imagined the connection or correlation between star
systems and atomic structures. Albert Einstein mathematically worked
on the quest to discover the answer of the ‘Unified Field.’ What is
the relationship between planets/stars and atoms/molecules? This
question haunted Einstein for decades in his later years. Could the
ultimate answer be as simple as RELATIVITY? It all depends on your
size; where you are and your size-relationship to your universe.
Do not be so sure you walk upon a PLANET. The truth could be as
mind-blowing as you are walking upon someone else’s ELECTRON. That
someone would be a life form that stands in a UNIVERSE SO LARGE
that it is beyond our capability to view. We might only be able
to see its atomic particles on an extremely microscopic level and
misinterpret these atoms as huge, cosmic worlds. There is no size;
it is all relative.
Our sun, as other stars, is a gigantic nuclear reaction. The
hydrogen to helium generator will eventually use up its fuel and
burnout. The Sun could also be an electro-magnetic storehouse of
PROTONS and NEUTRONS as contained in the center of atoms. The
elliptical orbits of electrons around the proton parallel the
elliptical orbits of planets around their single or multiple suns.
If the ‘Field’ is truly ‘Unified’ and one life form’s sun is
another life form’s proton, then we have a shockingly deep answer to
the question: What are atoms and molecules? They are different
compositions of cosmic bodies.
As phenomenal as the concept is, it is not a new idea. Dr. Seuss
wrote the fantasy ‘Horton Hears a Who?’ where life existed in a dust
speck. Within the world of the dust speck, was a dust speck that
contained life. Life and universes continue to the MACRO and to the
micro…probably, endlessly. In the film ‘Animal House,’ Donald
Sutherland and Tom Hulce got high. The boy excitedly said to his
professor, ‘you mean…our whole universe could be in someone’s pant
This writer has written of the possibility of multiple/infinite
Big Bangs; Quasars and Black Holes may be evidence of connecting
worlds via the MACRO and micro; also, the Electro-Magnetic Spectrum
as physical universes rushing by us so fast, we misinterpret their
atoms as light-speed waves (frequencies) in nature. (Read the
article ‘Light-Speed Universes’ or the story ‘Talking to a
When we view the awesome panorama of the observable universe,
what is it exactly that we are seeing? Could it be the mixture of
colors; explosive forces; beautiful and destructive interactions of
sub-atomic particles? Where are we in the greater scheme of things?
Are we in a super-sized pant leg; in a brick on the wall? Does it
even matter? Is our Solar System the lead atom at the front of a
speeding car? If that were the case, a car crash in that MACRO world
might rub out our small niche of space in one ultimate FLASH OF
DESTRUCTION. We should not worry, though; our end could take eons.
The curved brushstroke into a sphere or ball is not unlike
Einstein’s curvature of space. As land extends for thousands of
miles and then bends; meets as one giant spheroid, so does SPACE.
ALL of space could curve and become a type of ATOM; a singularity; a
‘quanta’ or particle of a much, much larger world…etc.
I had read the Time Magazine issue dedicated to Einstein on
his 100th birthday and was completely fascinated. I saw the 2-hour,
PBS Special with Peter Ustinov and a curved pool table as the
childlike actor learned Einstein’s Universe. Somewhere it struck me
as I dug into the ground with a shovel planting a tomato garden.
With every plunge into the dirt, I wondered, ‘what was it I was
digging into?’ And the outrageous answer bounced back, I’m digging
into a freaking ATOM! I was shocked; more accurately, our ELECTRON
orbits a PROTON (sun).
Einstein had to suspect the truth with his title or Holy Grail
called the ‘Unified Field’ as it applies to atomic particles and
cosmic bodies. Today, it is vogue to dispute Einstein. But, the
basic and true principles of Relativity hit us everyday with every
move we make.
