A moment of our time – part 51

Revisiting part 51 of my A Moment of Our Time.

So this is the end of my long piece entitled A moment of our time in which I have tried to describe all that happens in any one given moment of time. Not a second because a second is too long. A moment in which all the matter and energy in our known universe goes through some sort of change. This last section covers the very small. Having read it again I can see that there are plenty of things that I could have added to the work. One day when I have more than just a moment I will hopefully go back and revisit it.

Microcosm

Think about every atom at that moment

Think about every particle at that moment

Think about every undiscovered particle at that moment

Think about every wave form at that moment

Think about every photon at that moment

Think about every wave of radiation striking the Earth at that moment

A moment

A moment of our time – part 50

Revisiting part 50 of my A Moment of Our Time.

Getting very close to the end of my long piece of work. How many of Earth’s 7.8 billion plus inhabitants ever consider the universe? How many of them have been educated sufficiently enough to understand what it is?

Universe

Think about the Earth moving around the sun at that moment

Think about how far the Earth has moved around the sun at that moment

Think about how far the Moon has moved around the Earth at that moment

Think about the other planets revolving around the sun at that moment

Think about the other moons spinning around those other planets at that moment

Think about the other objects revolving around the sun at that moment

Think about the other asteroids revolving around the sun at that moment

Think about the other comets revolving around the sun at that moment

Think about the sun revolving around the centre of the galaxy at that moment

Think about how far the sun has moved around the centre of the galaxy at that moment

Think about how much hydrogen has been turned in to helium in the sun at that moment

Think about how far all the celestial objects have moved relative to each other at that moment

Think about how much the universe has expanded at that moment

Think about the other stars in the galaxy at that moment

Think about the other galaxies in the universe at that moment

If we think of a moment it is quickly forgotten and we move on

A moment of our time – part 48

Revisiting past 48 of my A Moment of Our Time.

While the corona virus pandemic is taking its toll and climate change is looming ever more stronger we need to remember that people are still dying out there in the world through the use of weapons. Mostly men but some women are squaring off to each other playing out a dangerous game of brinkmanship and the weapons factories around the world are turning out ever more weapons as part of the broken economic model that the human primate runs.

War

Think about all those conflicts taking place at that moment

Think about all those weapons being produced at that moment

Think about all those weapons stockpiled at that moment

Think about all those bombs and missiles for military planes at that moment

Think about all those missiles aimed at each other at that moment

Think about all those unexploded munitions around the world at that moment

Think about all those submarines at that moment

Think about all those tanks at that moment

Think about all those missile launchers at that moment

Think about all those civilians caught up in conflict at that moment

When was the last time that you checked when that moment occurred?

Planes

Think about all those planes flying at that moment

Four different blank cards – cover artwork of four of my stories

Four different blank greeting, birthday or invitation cards of the artwork created for my first four books by Gerry Newton.

The four books are available from Amazon as a printed versions or as an ebook. There are illustrations throughout the stories and in the printed book they are repeated at the end so that they can be coloured in. The titles are:

Clever Dad and the Pirate Ship

Clever Dad and the Space Rocket

Brown Bear’s Big Day Out

The Lost marble

There’s also a simpler version of The Lost Marble called The Lost Marble Colouring Book and this has less text and more illustrations’

This card set along with others is available from our Etsy, https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/JunagarhMedia. Larger quantities of cards are available.

4 different birthday cards

An example of where to find one of the books is below. The stories are available globally from Amazon.

A moment of our time – part 46

Revisiting part 46 of my A Moment of Our Time

Part 46 continues with the theme of transport and in this section it’s about shipping. During the corona virus pandemic seafarers have been treated very badly and there are signs that to recover lost money that their contracts will become worse. Apart from the extract I’m going to leave the link I included yesterday regarding the 15 minute town and city concept that is being implemented in Paris as this will be crucial for our sustainability.

The 15 minute town and city concept is a really big part of the solution as personally owned cars are not sustainable. https://www.ted.com/talks/carlos_moreno_the_15_minute_city?utm_source=newsletter_daily&utm_campaign=daily&utm_medium=email&utm_content=button__2021-01-25#t-459254

Ships

Think about all those ships sailing at that moment

Think about all those ships and what they are carrying at that moment

Think about all those ships being built at that moment

Think about all those ships being dismantled at that moment

Think about all those ships with cargoes of live animals at that moment

Think about all those container ships sailing at that moment

Think about all those cruise ships sailing at that moment

Think about all those warships sailing at that moment

Think about all those oil tankers sailing at that moment

Think about all those fishing boats sailing at that moment

Think about all those yachts sailing at that moment

Think about all those grain ships sailing at that moment

And more moments will pass before you finish reading this

A moment of our time – part 45

Revisiting part 45 of my A Moment of Our Time.

The media is full of how EVs will be the thing to rapidly phase out fossil fuel powered vehicles but the resources and environmental damage their extraction causes is often in far away lands away from the glossy marketing and advertising. There isn’t enough planet to go round so EVs are not the solution. The 15 minute town and city concept is a really big part of the solution as personally owned cars are not sustainable. https://www.ted.com/talks/carlos_moreno_the_15_minute_city?utm_source=newsletter_daily&utm_campaign=daily&utm_medium=email&utm_content=button__2021-01-25#t-459254

Think about all those cars being repaired at that moment

Think about all those cars broken down at that moment

Think about all those electric cars charging at that moment

Think about all those petrol and diesel cars filling up at that moment

Think about all those new tyres being fitted to cars at that moment

And all in that same moment, yet more moments have passed
