cosmic flow

My new tattoo design, inspired by many lovely artists who offered to draw this for me on Tumblr (like @jimmuhcat, @succinctabilities, and @l-o-n-n-i) and finalized by @therawflow. (please follow them for amazing dotwork and geometric art!)

Thank you so much! 🔮🌙✨

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!

Confucianism (having good morals)-A humanistic, philosophical, and simple way of life. It’s primary goal is to achieve peace and harmony, emphasizes good morals as its prime social value: (infj, enfp, infp, intj, isfj, entj) 

Taoism (go with the flow)- Emphasizes cosmic harmony and connection to the world. Speaks of connection with the universe. Encourages simplicity and “non-purposive action” while embodying the essence of spontaneity: (entp, istp, isfp, intp, estp, esfp)

Legalism (F*ck you, obey the law): Believes the moral or correct thing to do is to follow the law and rules of society, rather than personal religions and beliefs: (istj, estj, esfj, enfj)

The circle is the symbol of divine energy, a feminine touch that embodies compassion, manifestation, and infinity. It’s cyclical, encapsulating new beginnings, connecting with seasonal and lunar transitions. The planets, chakras, and our breath cycle is circular. A cosmic flow that connects us to karma and goddess. The scared circle is protection, creation, balance, and evolution and saturated in mysticism. The druids used circles to strength their intuitive presence, symbols of the cosmos. Stone circles were scattered across the highlands, wells of ancient magick.
