Ask Ethan: If Gravity Attracts, How Can The ‘Dipole Repeller’ Push The Milky Way?

“What are the mechanics behind a dipole repeller? How can an area of space void of matter repulse galaxies to any meaningful extent (or at all?)?”

There’s been a longstanding puzzle in astrophysics that’s finally coming to a head. For nearly a century, we’ve known that our Universe is expanding, and that the distance to a galaxy determines its average apparent recessional speed from us. But on top of that is an additional motion – a peculiar velocity – caused by the local gravitational field of the Universe. When we look at the motion of our own galaxy, we see it’s moving about twice as fast in one direction as the attractive masses would allow. But underdense regions, where there’s less mass and gravity than average, can serve as an effective repeller, failing to attract other matter just as much as overdense regions can attract it. Thanks to a newly mapped and accounted for cosmic void, we might finally understand how our galaxy is moving through the Universe.

The so-called Great Attractor has nothing on the dipole repeller idea, and at long last the Milky Way’s motion might be understood!

Mars in the 9th house - Spirit Warrior 

Mars in the 9th house people want to kindle the light of God into an explosive forest fire. The desire to aggressively connect with the spirit, intimately, like a sexual crescendo is powerful and consuming. Mars accelerates the energies of a 9th house voyage, often expansively crackling through culture, land, religion, mind, and sea to ignite the guru inside. The individuals life energy is activated by her search for answers, a combative pilgrimage through existence, fighting for pure truth. The unknown is evocative for Mars in the 9th people. Both the mind and body can satiate the individual’s dynamic curiosity, setting the mind ablaze with philosophy and wisdom from the higher mind, energizing the body so it can search for meaning in its vast environment.

The intellect can be an airline in the 9th house. Mars is a planet that generates energy, desire, and enthusiasm. To think, to discover, to expand awareness, to lose herself in conversation with a foreigner, it can all kind of satisfy the individual in orgasmic ways. There may be a great enthusiasm for undertaking higher education, traveling to distant lands, and assimilating into a vast variety of cultures or cultural experiences. The mind is full of activity with Mars in the 9th, and the individual’s self confidence and faith in her own intelligence expands with experience and confronting the true mental arithmetic written in the universe. Everything that relates to the 9th house - its symbolic scripture and theology, philosophy, wanderlust, and spiritual law is activated through the flames of Mars. The individual extends her vision beyond the horizon as she searches for a way to infuse intellect with intuition and take herself somewhere higher. There can never be enough stamps on the passport, enough languages learned, or information contained in the mind. The individual can really burn the candle from both ends and become nervous, over stimulated, and uninspired.

The search for answers with Mars in the 9th can be dangerous, a path set of reckless abandon, but crystal instinct seems to motivate the person wanting to taste God. The individual typically has a good nature and tremendous respect for the global community. She may be stimulated to participate in politics, study religion, work overseas, or indulge in many faiths and readings until she sets on her own scripture. Focusing on variants of study that bring pleasure and joy are usually indications the individual is searching the right track. Often there is a tremendous morality displayed in Mars in the 9th. A sort of bowing acclaim for religion or laws of the spirit, a clear distinction between good and bad, God and the Devil. Her own divinity reflects in the light rays of the sun or the flickering of a candle, the orb that spirals in her chest radiates with intuition, universal love, and answers, all the blood of the cosmic mind flows here.


The first chakra is the Earth chakra, located at the base of the spine. It deals with survival, and is blocked by fear.
What are you most afraid of? Let your fears become clear to you. You are concerned about your survival, but you must surrender those fears. Let your fears flow down the creek.

Next is the Water chakra. This chakra deals with pleasure and is blocked by guilt.
Look at all the guilt that burdens you so. What do you blame yourself for? Now accept the reality that these things happened. But do not let them cloud and poison your energy. If you are to be a positive influence on the world, you need to forgive yourself.

Third is the Fire chakra, located in the stomach. This chakra deals with willpower, and is blocked by shame.
What are you ashamed of? What are your biggest disappointments in yourself? You will never find balance if you deny this part of your life.

The fourth chakra is located in the Heart. It deals with love and is blocked by grief.
Lay all your grief out in front of you. Love is a form of energy, and it swirls all around us. A love of your lost ones has not left this world, it is still inside of your heart; and it is reborn in a form of new love. Let it flow through you.

The fifth in the chain is the Sound chakra, located in the throat. It deals with the truth, and is blocked by lies, the ones we tell ourselves.
You can not lie about your own nature. You must accept yourself as you are.

The sixth pool of energy is the Light chakra, located in the center of the forehead. It deals with insight, and is blocked by illusion.
The greatest illusion of this world is the illusion of separation. Things you think are separate and different are actually one and the same. We are all one people, but we live as if divided. We are all connected, and everything is connected. Even the separation of the four elements is an illusion. If you open your mind, you will see that all the elements are one; four parts of the same whole. Even metal is just a part of earth that has been purified and refined.

The final chakra is the Thought chakra. It is located at the crown of the head. It deals with pure cosmic energy and is blocked by earthly attachment.
Once you open this chakra, you will be able to go in the state of mind where you will have complete control and awareness of all of your actions. Meditate on what attaches you to this world… Now, let all of those attachments go. Let them flow down the river; forgotten. You must learn to let go, otherwise you won’t be able to let the pure cosmic energy flow into you from the Universe.

theadamantdaughter  asked:

A rather long and probably confusing ask: Do you think Aang was /really/ in control of the Avatar State during the finale? I was just thinking about it, and for a number of reasons, I think he wasn't. 1) It happened by complete chance. Guru Patik (?? it's been so long i hope that's right) said he needed to master his emotions/chakras by letting go of earthly attachments BEFORE he could master the Avatar State. 2) During the scene, he seemed almost vengeful and angry, similar to how we saw 1/2

him in other episodes where the Avatar State came on out of rage (The Southern Air Temple, The Avatar State, The Desert). Other Avatars like Roku, Kyoshi, and Korra always wore an impassive expression during their feats in the Avatar State, demonstrating their control. 3) He only came out of it because the influence of his past lives would’ve resulted in the death of Ozai, something he so completely disagreed with. I’m curious about your opinion on this. Was he in control? Or was it instinct?

That’s a really good point. I watched the final episode a while ago with Bryke’s commentary to see what they said about how Aang mastered the Avatar State and I took notes, lol. And that’s exactly how they worded it. They said that there was an energy blockage around Aang’s scar, and that the rock was able to open the flow of energy by hitting the same spot as Azula’s lightning strike. This put him into the Avatar State, unable to control it. They also said that there was a psychological factor. They said that when the Avatar State took control of Aang, it represented the “vengeful and wrathful” Avatar Spirit taking over his human vessel. But that was not who Aang was. Then they said that in overcoming those “raw emotions” and rising above them, he was able to take control of the Avatar State on his own. Bryke said that more killing was not what the world needed and that Aang became a fully realized Avatar by choosing not to kill. Then this allowed him to bend energy. 

The reason it was so important to open the chakras and let go of attachment was never explained. The Avatar has to be selfless when the time is right. If Kyoshi had an attachment to her own moral purity the way Aang did, she would not have been able to stop Chin, and he would have done far worse than he did. Roku loved his friend, but because he was threatening the world with war, he needed to be able to put those feelings aside if necessary. That’s the Avatar’s duty. But he couldn’t at first. His personal attachment gave the world Sozin and his genocide. Being the Avatar means being able to put personal feelings aside. Aang didn’t really make a choice for the world. It was kind of the opposite. Bryke wrote it so that Aang’s attachment to his own personal feelings about killing let him master the Avatar State. And he was sure lucky that Lion Turtle showed when it did.

Then there is the description from the Sozin’s Comet novelization:

Finally, as Ozai closed in for the kill, Aang backs into the rock which puts enormous pressure on the wound, loosening the spirits again. In that moment, when he was literally backed into a corner with no other option, Aang accepted what he must do, and decided to put the Avatar before Aang. This sacrifice of personal desire and the acceptance of duty unlocked his final chakra, allowing the pure cosmic energy to flow into his body.

Here it describes what I’ve been saying. That Aang would have needed to accept the responsibility and sacrifice personal desires, and kill Ozai in order to unlock his final chakra. But that wasn’t what I saw on-screen? All I saw was Aang hitting the rock. Then he just instantly went into the Avatar State. Like a magic button was pushed. If they had actually showed Aang making a conscious decision to kill on his own, then that would have made more sense and they wouldn’t have even needed the rock jabbing scene. The author was probably given information while writing the novel maybe from Ehasz, to write something that was more thematically in line with what was originally supposed to happen. To give some kind of explanation instead of just “pointy rock”.

Inside every human being is an ocean of pure, vibrant consciousness. When you ‘transcend’ in Transcendental Meditation, you dive down into that ocean of pure consciousness. You splash into it. And it’s bliss. You can vibrate with this bliss. Experiencing pure consciousness enlivens it, expands it. It starts to unfold and grow.
