The Solstice and The Equinox

The numbers ‘one’ and ‘two….’

We celebrate the solstice when light and dark are (farthest from equi-distant) at an extreme. We celebrate an equinox when light and dark are (closest to equi-distant) at an alternate kind of ‘extreme.’

That is dark and light represent the numbers ‘one’ and ‘two.’ Dark turns into light (zero turns into one) and then goes back to dark (one turns into zero), again (solstice turns into equinox and then goes back to solstice again).

Light and Dark

The equinox and solstice, both, celebrate, the circular relationship between begin and end. That is, we begin a new year in January (at the beginning of January) and we begin a new season in March (in the middle of March).

Beginning and End

We can notice, all of us, we are conceived, technically, nine months, ‘before’ we are born. The astronomical ‘distance’ between a solstice and an equinox (the number’s one and two).

Conception and Birth

That is, the earth is conceived and born as light turns from half to whole. Where, technically, from Nature’s point of view, there is no such thing as ‘half’ and ‘whole.’

Half and Whole

This introduces the ‘whole’ idea of ‘confusion’ (contradiction in general) into mathematics. The idea that one and two are half and whole (combined and separated).

One and Two
Half and Whole

This gives man’kind’ a whole lot of ‘explaining to do…’ Explaining the ‘art of explaining’ in general (search and discovery).

Search and Discovery

Which ‘explains’ the metaphors called ‘Jupiter’ and ‘Saturn’ (king and queen of Nature) (extreme optimism married to extreme pessimism).

Jupiter and Saturn
King and Queen (Optimist and Pessimist)

This explains why, and, also, how, the conservation of a circle, involves its ‘self’ in everything.

Conservation of a Circle

Meaning, and it’s impossible not to know this, every ‘one’ of us is duplicitous, in one way or an ‘other…’ Half-optimist. Half-pessimist. Explaining why we can only ‘get along with each other’ half-the-time. The other half? Well, you already know the answer to this.

Conservation of the Circle is the core (and, therefore, the only) dynamic in Nature.
