Starry Thoughts: the SEDS UOC Blog


Oftentimes, we find ourselves lost in thoughts, whether it is in a moment of peace or one of turmoil. Sometimes, we tend to express the thoughts racing in our minds. Be it in the form of words, or by action. But rare a time comes when we pick up a pen or start typing and create something from those thoughts. As intelligent beings, we possess the capability and the capacity to make rarities, possibilities. As empathetic beings, we show the creativity of sharing the emotions we feel during those thoughtful moments; maybe as a tune that engulfs a feeling, or possibly a story that depicts an expression. Or maybe, even as a blog filled with a myriad of colorful writings.

With the great cosmos around us, ever-expanding and never ceasing to amaze, rarely a dull moment passes by. From the warm moments of looking up at the stars with the person you love, to the mulling perspective of how we really are seemingly insignificant specks in time and space. Be it the awe-inspiring and imaginative moments of the musings of a sci-fi writer, or the rush and thrill of a conspiracy playing across the universe. Or maybe, it is the hard and long hours of research and scientific findings, or the simple astronomer at home sighting the constellations above.

Palmer: What are you studying up there?
Eleanor: Oh, the usual. Nebulae, quasars, pulsars, stuff like that. What are you writing?
Palmer: The usual. Nouns, adverbs, adjectives here and there.
