Everything and Nothing / How many satellites orbiting Earth?

How many satellites orbiting Earth?

Today I asked this question and I found answers. You may know about space debris and I assumed we have lots of metal in our orbit. I never dreamed we had that much.

We have nearly 20.000 satellites in orbit ! (Credit to AGI)

Here is the cool satellite viewer: http://apps.agi.com/SatelliteViewer/



There are estimated to be over 170 million pieces of debris smaller than 1 cm (0.39 in) as of July 2013. There are approximately 670,000 pieces from one to ten cm. The current count of large debris (defined as 10 cm across or larger) is 29,000. The technical measurement cutoff is c. 3 mm (0.12 in). Over 98 percent of the 1,900 tons of debris in low Earth orbit (as of 2002) was accounted for by about 1,500 objects, each over 100 kg (220 lb). Total mass is mostly constant despite addition of many smaller objects, since they reenter the atmosphere sooner. Using a 2008 figure of 8,500 known items, it is estimated at 5,500 t (12,100,000 lb).

Maybe some of you know the intro for the film "Contact" ?



Satellites, cell towers, radio, these all create our enviroments here on Earth.

Everything and Nothing / A world full oblivion

A world full oblivion.

How I grow older and wiser, I experience different shades within the shades. Sometimes I am lightweight like a bird of the skies.
Sometimes I am devastated when I see a tree in its full life to be amputed to its bones by stupid people, only to give it a last week before felling.
This tree must have been 100 years old.

There was someone who planted this tree, and watched him growing. Now the one is maybe gone and another one decides to fell a 100 year old entity.
I love every tree, every animal. The pigeons in the city are called rats. Pigeons are so sprightly birds. They reminds me to cats sometimes.
The rats are tiny or really big, just as different as humans. But it is my view. Or is it a forgotten or never lived view?

Attention and mindfulness to one another, a rare thing? Skin-deep soul searching for nothing, reality?
Sometimes I would be a Samurei, and I fight against the oblivion. Sometimes I would be the bird of the skies and glide over them.
Sometimes I realize that how I get older and wiser, the shades within the shades deepend.

The universe in a single note - a guide back to the roots of meditation:

There was "Nada Brahma - The world is sound", one inspiring and ambitious project. There were the Far Eastern and Eastern culture where people listened to the voice of the Inner Sound connected to the Universe. There were music researchers, who translated musical octaves into stars frequencies. There were the sacred chants of the ancients, the rhythms of the prohibited underworlds and the airs of the inter-worlds. All tried to meditate, emerged from meditation and found meditation.

So, what is meditation. This concept is a universe in itself, for meditation is achieved in a thousand different ways and practices. Not every way can be the right one for all people. Man is shaped by experiences and, of course, by the place where he was born und where he lives. But not only his parents' house and the country where he lives, but also the stars are part of the geography that continues his life.

Meditation is the point at which we return to our original self. Some are born in this way, some need practices, some are experiencing a changing moment, and so they remember themselves. Everyone has it, the inner calm, which strives to the surface. Music is the transformation of waves and yearning. Music has been always used as a means of expression and also as an aid to lead to higher and deeper understanding. But also the forbidden worlds, which lead to occult knowledge, used the music to lead to our own inner self and to our origin.

Meditation can be viewed naturally or scientifically, the result always leads to a natural goal, because we are natural.

Meditation is the point at which we release the here and now and arrive there where we are free and without thoughts. Once we are there, a whole universe unfolds before us, the experiences of the world pour on us and we suddenly recognize. Our perception is concentrate and no longer distinguishes between important or unimportant, known or unknown, good or evil things. We are now at a point where we are free.

A single note can describe a universe, if we dive into this note, if we created this note properly, if we allow this note. An important theme of meditation and music is the admittance. It is only by granting access that we allow access to our innermost being. It is difficult nowadays, because the world has become very noisy. Especially in big cities it is very difficult. I've moved to a smaller town for this reason. You have to know your limits.

And just as you know your limits, you are able to know your freedoms. Everyone has to do this for themselves, but this can begin with music you can dream with. More over, this can be done by omitting prejudice, by making mistakes and finally recognizing that we have an incredible freedom. The freedom to let go. Then you will be able to hear the universe in a note and you will feel the breath of the universe in a single contemplation.

All your best,
Jana
