DE NATURA RERUM
« To perceive the world in all its facets, poetic and scientific approaches complement each other. Each is important for understanding the world. Each in its own way, gives us access to the wealth and beauty of the universe » Hubert Reeves

THREE-BODY PROBLEM, CHAOS
Mathematicians (among them Henri Poincaré) have prooved that three celestial bodies (or more) orbiting around each other constitutes an unstable system. Even if the probality is very low, chaos can break loose at any time.
It is fascinating to think that behind the regularity of the solar system orbits, the chaos sits asleep.
EINSTEIN WAS RIGHT
Principle 1: The light runs in straight line in the vacuum silence.
Principle 2 : Under the attraction field of meetings, the straight line is becoming a curve.
The puley makes the things workables by the actions of giving and receiving the rope, without gaining nothing for itself.
In my lightings, the puley makes possible the dialog between the subtle (the light) and the terrestrial (the mass).
This idea can be find in the Dogons (from Mali) theology. In their comogony, the universe is a loom which ties the threads to create the word. The puley, by its central place into the loom, is thus associated to the vocals cords, which transform the « rough » air from the lungs in « subtly vibrating » air to give birth to the word and the singing.
A journey among the few numbers (physics constants) which rule the balance between the universe forces.
What would be « our » world if these constants were slighty different? Would we be here to watch at the sky?
