27 Aug 2016 Sugar Detox, Dark Matter Galaxies and Black Sea Salt Dresses….Crush (Garbage song, Romeo and Juliet movie version), It’s No Good (Depeche Mode)

Hello to you, how are things in your dimensions today?  I’m doing pretty well here in the one I share with Kyle.  I have been going  through some emotional stuff which wouldn’t normally be such a big deal if  we both weren’t trying to kick  our sugar addiction lol.  Both Kyle and I can really tell we are going through dt’s right now.  We haven’t completely eliminated our sugar intake but have really cut it down and it has not been easy!  So be forewarned those of you considering the course we are taking…..there are side effects!  The biggest things I’ve noticed for myself is my energy levels and mood.  Kyle has been moodier than normal too which is uncommon for him, he’s usually a very “sunny” personality!  We aren’t buying candy, ice cream, baked goods from the store anymore.  It was easier and more convenient but it’s not good for us.

A couple headlines caught my eye, a mostly dark matter galaxy discovery and what happens to a black dress after you dip it in the Dead Sea!  Has anyone else noticed that there seems to be a lot more space discoveries lately?!  Not a bad thing.

This Weird Galaxy Is Actually 99.99 Percent Dark Matter

Abraham, J. Brodie Dragonfly 44 is an ultradiffuse, or “fluffy” galaxy discovered in 2015 when astronomers used the Dragonfly Telephoto Array to look at several unidentified blobs in the constellation Coma. Astronomers have discovered a galaxy as big as the Milky Way that consists almost entirely of dark matter, a mysterious and invisible substance that scientists have been trying to figure out for decades. Only one-hundredth of one percent of the galaxy is ordinary, visible matter like stars and planets. The other 99.99 percent of the stuff in this galaxy can’t be seen.No one really knows what dark matter is made of, but scientists believe it exists because they can see the effects of its gravity on other things in space. Whatever it may be, about 80 percent of the mass in the universe is dark matter.This dark galaxy, named Dragonfly 44, was first detected in 2015, through the use of the Dragonfly Telephoto Array in New Mexico. With a combination of eight telephoto lenses and cameras, the array is designed to look at objects in space that aren’t bright enough to see with other telescopes. [Dark Matter and Dark Energy: The Mystery Explained]

Dragonfly 44 is one of 47 ultradiffuse, or “fluffy” galaxies that Pieter van Dokkum of Yale University and colleagues found in the Coma Cluster, a group of at least 1,000 galaxies around 300 million light-years from Earth. This distance is easily close enough for a telescope to see; the Hubble Space Telescope can see billions of light-years away. But no one had noticed these galaxies hiding in the dark before. Dragonfly 44 was one of the largest and brightest galaxies they found. While it’s as big as the Milky Way, it only emits about 1 percent as much light.

A cosmic dragonfly

Van Dokkum and his team later realized that there was something very odd about Dragonfly 44: a galaxy that big couldn’t possibly hold itself together with so few stars. There wouldn’t be enough gravity, and the stars would drift apart. They suspected that dark matter was responsible for holding the galaxy together, and this particular galaxy seemed like it contained a ton of it, so they set out to determine exactly how much.

To investigate the amount of dark matter in Dragonfly 44, the team turned to one of the largest telescopes on Earth, located at the W. M. Keck Observatory in Mauna Kea, Hawaii. They used a tool on the Keck II telescope called the Deep Imaging Multi-Object Spectrograph (DEIMOS) to study the movement of stars in the galaxy.

“Motions of the stars tell you how much matter there is,” van Dokkum said in a statement. “They don’t care what form the matter is, they just tell you that it’s there. In the Dragonfly galaxy stars move very fast. So there was a huge discrepancy: using Keck Observatory, we found many times more mass indicated by the motions of the stars, than there is mass in the stars themselves.”

In other words, van Dokkum and his team found evidence of way more mass than they could actually see. Only 0.01 percent of the galaxy is made of ordinary, visible matter: stuff that is made of atoms containing protons, neutrons and electrons. But the other 99.99 percent of Dragonfly 44’s mass is the ever-elusive dark matter. Of all the stuff in this Milky Way-size galaxy, we can see almost nothing.

“This has big implications for the study of dark matter,” van Dokkum said. “It helps to have objects that are almost entirely made of dark matter so we don’t get confused by stars and all the other things that galaxies have. The only such galaxies we had to study before were tiny. This finding opens up a whole new class of massive objects that we can study.”

A dirty smudge in space

The team then went to the Gemini Observatory, also in Mauna Kea, to take new photos of Dragonfly 44. Using the Gemini Multi-Object Spectrometer (GMOS), they created a color image of the galaxy. The dim, spheroidal galaxy looks a bit like a dirty smudge on a photo of deep space.

New images from GMOS also revealed a halo of star clusters similar to the halo around the Milky Way. Some researchers believe that dark matter could be responsible for light halos around galaxies. If true, this means that dark matter might not be perfectly dark at all.

“Ultimately what we really want to learn is what dark matter is,” van Dokkum said. “The race is on to find massive dark galaxies that are even closer to us than Dragonfly 44, so we can look for feeble signals that may reveal a dark matter particle.”

Dark Matter to me can be explained like this:  it’s “potential”, the space between a thought and something becoming solid matter….potential galaxies, stars, planets etc.  It’s like the Universe’s holding pen for creation that hasn’t happened yet. 

My friend Rhonda gave me her black dress so that I would have something nice to wear to the Distant Worlds concert Kyle and I are going to next week.  I could have gone and bought one, but she, Kyle and anyone who knows me well, know I am not a fan of clothes shopping.  Her giving me this dress (and a couple of fancy jeans that fit perfectly) spared me that misery lol!  Needless to say, I will not be dipping my dress in sea salt like these artists did, but what an amazing experiment and unique artistic expression!

An Artist Submerged A Dress In The Dead Sea For 2 Months And The Result Is Extraordinary (excerpt)

Mind. Blown.

As the lowest and one of the saltiest places on Earth, the Dead Sea plays host to hordes of tourists and the production of nutrient rich skincare.

For two months in 2014, it was also home to a dress, weighted down and submerged in its waters by Israeli artist Sigalit Landau.

The dress, which went into the lake a stark black, almost magically transformed in just two months as it became covered in white crystallized salt.

This was the first song I sang and recorded for Kyle before I met him in person:

GARBAGE LYRICS

Play “#1 Crush”

“#1 Crush”

I would die for you
I would die for you
I’ve been dying just to feel you by my side
To know that you’re mineI will cry for you
I will cry for you
I will wash away your pain with all my tears
And drown your fearI will pray for you
I will pray for you
I will sell my soul for something pure and true
Someone like you

See your face every place that I walk in
Hear your voice every time I am talking
You will believe in me
And I will never be ignored

I will burn for you
Feel pain for you
I will twist the knife and bleed my aching heart
And tear it apart

I will lie for you
Beg and steal for you
I will crawl on hands and knees until you see
You’re just like me

Violate all The love that I’m missing
Throw away all the pain that I’m living
You will believe in me
And I can never be ignored

I would die for you
I would kill for you
I will steal for you
I’d do time for you
I would wait for you
I’d make room for you
I’d sail ships for you
To be close to you
To be a part of you
‘Cause I believe in you
I believe in you
I would die for you.

Another of their songs I just love:
Milk

Milk

I am milk
I am red hot kitchen
And I am cool
Cool as the deep blue ocean

I am lost
So I am cruel
But I’d be love and sweetness
If I had you
I’m waiting
I’m waiting
For you

I’m waiting
I’m waiting
For you

I am weak
But I am strong
I can use my tears to
Bring you home
I’m waiting
I’m waiting
For you

I’m waiting
I’m waiting
For you

I’m waiting
I’m waiting
For you

I am milk
I am red hot kitchen
I am cool
Cool as the deep blue ocean

I’m waiting
I’m waiting
For you

I’m waiting
I’m waiting
For you

I’m waiting
I’m waiting
For you

I’m aching for you
I’m aching for you

I’m waiting
I’m waiting
I’m waiting
For you

This song came to mind after I head this one, it’s one of absolute favorite Depeche Mode songs….Depeche Mode is one of my all time favorite bands!  This video is silly !

It’s No Good

As your bony fingers close around me
Long and spindly
Death becomes me
Heaven can you see what I see

Hey you pale and sickly child
You’re death and living reconciled
Been walking home a crooked mile

Paying debt to karma
You party for a living
What you take won’t kill you
But careful what you’re giving

There’s no time for hesitating
Pain is ready, pain is waiting
Primed to do it’s educating

Unwanted, uninvited kin
It creeps beneath your crawling skin
It lives without it lives within you

Feel the fever coming
You’re shaking and twitching

You can scratch all over
But that won’t stop you itching

Can you feel a little love
Can you feel a little love

Dream on dream on

Blame it on your karmic curse
Oh shame upon the universe
It knows its lines
It’s well rehearsed

It sucked you in, it dragged you down
To where there is no hallowed ground
Where holiness is never found

Paying debt to karma
You party for a living
What you take won’t kill you
But careful what you’re giving

Can you feel a little love
Can you feel a little love

Dream on dream on
