Pluto PlutÃ´t Moins
“(The day) the sun (is scattered like) feathers of pavo
I (still) run (and meantime) I make a thousand (new) suns.
My Hand goes past, (It) extinguishes the suns, (it makes them into) mud;
(My Hand makes) the lights (of heavens) sink (like) (fish-)scales.”
The Revelation of ArÃ¨s XXII/12-13
When I heard talk of a new planet, I was not surprised. I think it is sort of what the Creator does for fun.
However all the clamor over changing a blob from one category to another I find to be a bit overdone. A group of people (how many?) somewhere have decided this and all the rest of us are to follow along?
The major worry of the experts so far seems to be coming up with a new mnemonic sentence. Is that trivial or what?
Some people are scandalized that what they were taught in school now seems to be declared untrue. How many more examples of that are there? How many things do we accept as true with no means of verification? How many things were once thought true and now it is no longer the case?
However, it does make me wonder which things are actually important for our children to learn? Which things are worth filling up our brains with? It’s hard to get something out of one’s head that one thought was true, but then isn’t after all.
