What I believe.... (Episode 4 - The Force)

OK... this isn't part four it's the first part... where have i heard that before?
but what do i believe, in terms of god?..

i fracking don't believe *anything* and if i did it would only be an opinion, a speculation... in fact, everyone on this planet who has an opinion about god, is only speculating, that includes believers and non-believers alike... so get over yourself, you don't know, they don't know and I don't know.. get over yourself if you think you have 'absolute' knowledge of something immortal and supernatural, if you do 'know' something like that with certainly, it is most probably all in your head and if it isn't then you can bloody well share your brilliant observations with the rest of the planet, unless of course you are full of shit...

But, what I do know is there is some sort of consensus in the scientific community that the universe is expanding at an ever faster rate because of some 'force' pushing the galaxies apart at an ever faster rate... the way I see it is that the entire universe creates a kind of 'solar wind' effect pushing outwards with enough force to accelerate the galaxies. (which probably isn't right, but the point is that "dark energy" is a force of some kind!!)

We can see this solar wind in our own local solar system and how it interacts with comets as the tail of a comet always points away from the sun. The solar wind has enough energy to melt the comet's surface ice and then accelerate that material away from the comet at faster speeds than the comet is moving. We see this as the comet's tail of is in *front* of the comet even as the comet is on the way *out* of the inner solar system..

so imagine that solar wind on a cosmic scale.... that's The Force and it's the biggest thing in the universe... bigger than the 'material' universe.. that Force defines the size of the universe, because if you were not in its range you wouldn't know our universe was there!..

although this Force doesn't exactly bind the galaxies together, that's gravity, but it does surround us and it is everywhere because where this energy isn't, it would be hard to call that particular place a part of the universe if light from our universe hadn't reached that spot yet, don't you think? and this Force comes from the sun along with trillions of other stars, and the sun does give us life.. nothing would be here if not for the sun...

"Here comes the sun and I say it's alright"

There is no other thing in the universe that is everywhere and is connected to everything else, the Cosmological Solar Wind... aka The Force! :-D

ps. yes "dark energy" is what people like to say - but what makes more sense? the cumulative effect of every star in the universes' solar wind is pushing the universe apart, or some mysterious dark energy that we don't know the origin of is doing this pushing apart of the universe?
