notes on a modern mythology to explain what science understands in emotional-metaphorical terms

  • The Sun is literally an eldritch entity (beyond human capacity to fully comprehend, unfathomably ancient, could absolutely wipe out civilization without any awareness of us, will be there after you're long dead). It even has tentacles which reach out and attempt to destroy us.
  • The atmosphere goddess, with her golden Van Allen belts and ozone layer, protects us from the Sun's wrath.
