How Things Work
Within the Sun, in its plasmatic state, are elements undergoing fusion, emitting light and heat, making Sun one of the major supporters of life.
Pressure differences, fronts, cause winds. Soft winds, gently lulling us away to a dreamland, or ones powerful enough to whip up storms in the sea.
The force of gravity responsible for this large scale universe also holds us within the far off edges of our system, so we don’t go hurtling off across the infinite space.
Combinations of various physical, chemical and biological reactions bring about changes on the Earth’s surface, altering its look from time to time.
Millions of tiny electrons moving in an atom produce electricity. They also cause magnetism, making an atom the smallest magnet we know.
Deep inside the human body, cells respire, produce and reproduce.Microscopic DNA, encode the information controlling everything from the blink of an eye to the entire functioning of the human body.
Yet after all these years of research, the solving of the mysteries of space and beyond, right down to our very cells, mankind has been unable to do but one thing . . .
- Unravelling the secrets of the human heart.
All our knowledge of things, big and small, is useless when it comes to the power of love and the very reason behind it.
Why do sparks fly? Or why are connections made?
Is this the entanglement of physics? Or the strong forces holding together atoms? Is the law of attraction of magnets applicable here?
No, they aren’t.
For we don’t love for a reason.
We just love.
It simply happens.
Like the best laid plans.
