Content Warning: #Autistic in a Cosmic Mood

Video cover: Content Warning: Autistic in a Cosmic Mood. "It's been a hell of a week... Politics... Dog attack... But I'm in a Cosmic Mood.." - Johnny Profane Au

It’s been a hell of a week…

But I’m in a cosmic autistic mood… It happens…


NOTE: Some autistic & ADHD folks process reading better, some listening… some both at once. So I include a transcript, podcast, and “pretty” captioned video below. #InclusionMatters.


It’s been a hell of a week…

Politics…. Did I mention my wife and I survived a dog attack?

But I’m in a cosmic autistic mood… It happens…

Content warning…

Sometimes I get my head outta my a̴s̴s̴… I mean, the current political crisis of the moment, take a step back, catch a breath &…

Think about our known Universe being some 13.7 billion years old…

Ya know, 432,000,000,000,000,000 seconds… give or take a parsec…👇

Captioned to aid audio processing.

And I think about the sheer number of random events that had to take place in all those moments, for instance…
the butterfly wings that had to flap…
just so…

or, for that matter…
the hurtful words that had to be spoken…
just then…👇

For our Galaxy to be born…

Or our sun…

Earth…

Life…

Buddha…

Autistic Johnny.

And, then, I think, if one butterfly flapped a nanosecond outta beat…

or one hurtful word was NEVER uttered…

No Galaxy…

No Buddha…

No Johnny…👇

Say speaking of Buddha…

Know what’s really WEIRD about whirlpools?

Those spinning funnels in seas, streams, bathtubs…

Shaped by the flow of water tumbling down mountains… traveling through meadows… dashing around rocks & logs…👇

Some lasting fractions of a second. Some permanent enough to earn names like “Old Sow,” “Fishs Eddy”… or the “Eye of Jupiter”?

Cuz, the Eye of Jupiter? Just one BIG whirlpool…

Know what’s funny about ALL of these?👇

Inside… they’re simply some degree of vacuum… All that water or clouds or cause and effect or whatever… swirl around…

Nothing.

Even the named whirlpools.

Like the Milky Way.

The sun we call Sol…

Earth.

Autistic Johnny.

Buddha….

13.7 billion years.

432,000,000,000,000,000 seconds.👇

What a long…

strangely… joyful…

trip it’s been.

Hope next week’s better.

    Very sorry to hear about the dog attack. I hope you are both OK now.

    The time-depth of the cosmos is indeed daunting. There must be billions of events before our solar system’s formation which, if they had happened even slightly differently, would mean our Earth would not exist or would be very different, probably lifeless.

    Here’s another one — that 13.7 billion years the universe has existed is only one ten-thousandth of the length of time it’s estimated that it will exist. In cosmic terms we are very, very close to the beginning.
