GeekSpeak subject for Saturday 16th July at noon SLT: The James Webb Space Telescope! What will it show us?

This week NASA showed us the first images from the JWST.  There will be plenty more to come.  What will we discover?  What answers will the telescope give us?  Will it find life on other planets, perhaps advanced civilizations?  Will it tell us how the universe began?

And when it gives us answers will it also give us new questions?  What questions about the universe do you want answers to?  Can we ever know what the universe really looks like? 

Will the JWST change our view of our place in the cosmos?  Does it make you proud to be human?  Or is the sheer size and complexity of the universe frightening?

Join us at GeekSpeak at noon SLT on Saturday to discuss the JWST and its pictures.  Bring your fellow geeks!

GeekSpeak subject for Saturday 18th June at noon SLT: Let’s talk astronomy!


This week we will talk about stargazing.  For thousands of years, people have looked up at the stars, imagined pictures in the night sky, and tried to understand how the universe worked, what planets are, and how and why they move.  How would we think about the universe and our place in it if we lived on a planet where we could not see the stars?

Do you stargaze?  Join our star party at noon SLT on Saturday to talk about the stars and how we can enjoy the night sky. 

This is a field where amateurs can still do real science.  And it is so much fun.  Bring your friends.  And a telescope!

GeekSpeak subject for Saturday October 10th at noon SLT


GeekSpeak – Should we seed life on other planets?

Should we take life to other planets?  Should we design and create lifeforms suited to conditions away from Earth?  Should we replace the life on other planets with life that is useful to us?  If a planet is lifeless should we take life there?  The newly discovered underground lakes on Mars might provide the first opportunity for seeding life.  And maybe some people will think it is our duty to spread life around the universe.

 If you were to design lifeforms what would you design?  Inflatable birds on Mars where ordinary birds could not fly?  Plants that move around like animals?  Animals that photosynthesize like plants?  Green cows and sheep?

Or is the whole idea foolish, even dangerous?  The animals we design may evolve to become our rivals, even our predators.  What will happen if we fill the universe with life?  Will we be worshipped as gods?  Or will we become food for a stronger species from far away? 

Come and discuss the biological future of the universe.  Bring a time machine and your friends.

Managing Mercury in Retrograde by Linda Lauren

This blog entry is being repeated because we have just entered a retrograde and I would much rather see everyone plan ahead day by day, rather than panic and make things worse for themselves.

From June 7 to July 2, 2014, the planet Mercury is in retrograde motion. That usually strikes fear in normally rational individuals because someone told them that we were in “mercury retrograde” and that somehow is negative.

Mercury is the planet governing communication, transportation and truth. When it is in “retrograde” it’s movement appears to be streaming backward in the skies, and that backward intention affects all forms of communication: whether that be via computer or person to person. Just because there are more misunderstandings and bad judgment calls made during Mercury Retrograde periods than any other time, does not mean that Mercury is singularly responsible. I am beginning to suspect an uncomfortable pattern. By the very virtue of the Universal Law of Attraction, many people are actually encouraging the frustration experienced during this time, rather than working with the blessings and magic of it.

We don’t have negative planets; we have negative people who use the planets as a great excuse for negative thinking, and in some cases, even negative behavior. So let’s clear the decks and get a better understanding of this phenomena and how best to flow with it.
  • Unless it involves something already in the works, avoid signing new contracts or any other important agreement papers while Mercury is Retrograde.
  • Back up your computer files regularly because Mercury wreaks havoc with any form of technology, whether that is a computer or a toaster oven.
  • Avoid travel, and if you can’t, then give yourself a lot of extra time and confirm your itinerary several times and check all reservations.
  • Be extra mindful of your words. Be clear and concise about what you are conveying and don’t take things to a personal level. Even the most innocent requests can take on total miscommunication.
The late spiritual writer and teacher, Vernon Howard said, “What gets your attention gets you!”  And that is very much like the Law of Attraction.  If you focus too long on the negative you will soon find yourself connecting with more of that until you are drained of positive energy.  Don’t do that to yourself and never allow anyone else to influence you in that way.

Some suggested activities when Mercury is in Retrograde: editing, revising, reviewing, research, relaxing, and regrouping. Also, cleaning out clutter, organizing and catching up on paperwork are highly favored during this time. Above all, remember that this is a magical time to reconnect with the past while revisiting abandoned projects and renewing old relationships.

Have a magical retrograde!
