Every now and then one comes across something that simply smothers the brain with a powerful intellectual fog. A fog so great, that the brain can’t function as it has been blown away by the notions and/or precedents set forth by this very thing one has come across.
In this instance, I am this one. In this instance, this thing, is the Great Attractor.
Defined as “a gravitational anomaly in intergalactic space … which reveals the existence of a localised concentration of mass equivalent to tens of thousands of galaxies”, the G.A. (the ‘gah’ as I have dubbed it) is apparently attracting galaxies towards its massive self at a rate estimated to be 600 km/s. Oh, you better believe we’re one of the galaxies. Take another look towards this mysterious wonder of the dark, empty void that is space.
Unfortunately (or fortunately, if it turned out to be a giant monster, or say Unicron), because of the distance between ourselves and the G.A., along with all the wonderous things found between those two points, no good look can really be sought out at this point.
Try that on. It certainly fogged me.
