The SuperLuna show returns, even if it will be the last time for 2020 in which we will be able to attend this particular “space” show. Thursday 7 May the sky will give us the last Super Moon of the year. It will be the fourth and last of 2020, after those of February, March and April. Our satellite, in fact, will reach the Full Moon phase that day near its perigee (i.e. the minimum distance from Earth, which will touch at 05.05 on 7 May, 359655 km from us, against an average distance of just over of 384,000 km), so it will be a little closer, brighter and a little bigger than usual.
This “overlap” between full moon and passage to the perigee is now popularly referred to as “super moon”. The term, in itself, has no scientific value: in astronomy we prefer to speak of the Full Moon at Perigeo, but undoubtedly the nickname “Superluna” has a charm of its own. After this last appointment in 2020, the Superluna will return on April 27, 2021. Regarding its “floral identity”, the full moon of May was tied by the Native Americans to the flowers of the fields, which are abundant at this time of the year..
What differs us from animals? Many would answer the instinct. The answer is not wrong, however it is not entirely correct. I would say that another thing that differs us from animals is modesty. If we did not have modesty our actions would not be conditioned by any shame or feeling. Although even animals have a little of modesty, especially dogs, the difference with us is really substantial. The lack of modesty is what is shaping up with the new technologies, especially 5G, which will make our lives increasingly hyperconnected. Where does our public life end and where does the private one begin? The big brother is the parody of the future. The big brother is the parody of the future. Our every look is under everyone’s eyes or at least it could be through spying means like drone and cameras.
You imagine what would happen if computer experts or hackers mounted cameras in people’s homes: there would be no more privacy.
A few days ago the Italian television program Report made a well-documented investigation into all cases of espionage in the world: staggering levels.
“Spying would perhaps be tolerable if it could be exercised by honest people”
In the big cities there is no more silence and noise pollution has become daily. We often use music to isolate ourselves from the surrounding world, full of noise and chaos. In fact, in addition to giving emotions (often deriving from its musical genre), music has a therapeutic function.
Many studies have shown that while listening to music, the body increases the production of endorphin, which acts like a morphine in the brain, alleviating depression or anxiety.
Anyway. the best solution to detach ourselves from the chaos of the city would be to get in touch with nature.
But what exactly is silence? Pure silence almost never exists because probably the silence itself is a deafening noise to the solitude of our soul. True silence is when we hear birds singing or how much we hear the sound of crickets or cicadas …
