    According to, "Astrophysics for People in a Hurry" by Noel deGrades Tyson, the four laws of nature are:
    • Gravity
    • Electromagnetic
    • Strong
    • Weak
    Three of these are binding forces. All but weak, which involve erosion of radioactivity. So, are we really moving away from a central bang, are are we bring drawn towards something? A black whole, or a drain with a giant kid in control of the stopper? Did each galaxy stem from a separate bang? Or are we apart of a larger conglomerate of swirling galaxies? In all this my wife and I watched a highway of ants today. Those moving toward the nest dutifully carrying the fruits of their labor. Others going the opposite direction to gather more for the survival of the colony. Amazon. Add a billion years of evolution to tjat, and I can't get the entire crew to show up without involving Human Resources. Do they have Ant Resources? Any Unions? How did we make it to the top of the food chain? There must be a 5th force.

    Ants are alien undesirables. There's only one course of action,



    I'm with Ripley on this ...

    Why a 5th? Because everything seams to be bound to something from Jupiter to the ant. In which case we could me moving to something. Maybe we are.

    time to rent Hitchhiker 's guide to the galaxy again. ;)

    I am thinking this puzzle is missing some parts. I've read that the Milky Way is affected by Andromeda, and maybe another galaxy. I know that two water drops will merge if they are close enough to overcome the friction of the glass they are on. Metal shavings tend to clump together. I just think that everything moving apart seem to defy what we see in nature, and through the scope. Planets attract moons, and even sometimes synchronize their rotations. It just makes more sense to me that we are being pulled more so than projected.

    But hey, who am I? In the end,maybe the ant is smarter than me. He's building a life for his collony, and I'm the flea pondering the dog. LOL
