Traveling

We are on a journey around the Galaxy
The idea that we have in mind will lead us to act accordingly.

Ptolemy’s Worldview

Almost two thousand years ago, Ptolemy wrote his treatise Almagest, where he would describe the dynamics of a geocentric system of the cosmos. In this, the Earth is at the center of the Universe, while the Sun, Moon, and the rest of the planets would rotate around it.

This treatise would remain as the scientific basis for the different narratives that consider Earth as the central element in the cosmos.

Cosmovision

Our worldview comes from our reflection and the knowledge we have about the movement of the cosmos during our life’s experience on Earth.

This kind of exercise is within what we call Philosophy.
An Earth that perceives the changes around her, transforming her nature and the life that goes with it, but, during all this constant transformation, in our minds, the Earth would remain still in the cosmos.

In this way, we would create a world that through its structures and institutions would try to recreate the perpetual stability that Earth presented to our eyes.

The solar system

Currently, the data from Astronomy shows us that the Sun is the central star of our planetary system; which is, at the same time moving around the galaxy.
Although it is true that is relatively little what we know about our main star and the Cosmos in general, and that we have much more to learn; I think that there is no objection in stating that it is huge the knowledge that we have if we compare it with respect to two thousand years ago.

Earth is one of the eight planets that turn around the star on this journey, the third by its closeness to it. Moreover, we now also know that the shape of the Earth is a spheroid with two energetic hemispheres.
The Sun moves at a speed of 220 km/s around the center of the galaxy generating a helical movement by the planets.

Furthermore, we have the Moon, which is the Earth’s natural satellite that rotates around it while continues to advance in its trajectory.

The lunar cycle that we can observe, which we commonly have known as a lunation, has acted during our evolutionary process as a guide to the different energy cycles that we experience on the planet.
Are we floating motionless in the middle of the stillness of a lake,
or immersed crossing a vast ocean?
