Count Your Blessings 05: Gravity



I’m really not trying to be silly here, but there are several reasons why I’m grateful for gravity. I’ve seen Wall-E and zero gravity isn’t good for my weight (LOL, I am being silly here, a little). Seriously, I thought that the idea of weightless was so cool and still do, but only on a temporary basis.

It would be quite difficult to maintain the human way of life without gravity. We would be constantly concerned with ways to keep ourselves tethered to the ground. I can’t even imagine what would happen to the Fruitarians if nothing ever fell from the trees (being silly again, but not really).

Gravity is a blessing because it keeps us grounded in more ways than one.

Thank you for taking the time to read this post. If you like it let me know and share it with others. See you next time, Toi Thomas. #thetoiboxofwords

    1. That’s what I was aiming for. Sometimes I’m very serious with these, but sometimes I get a little basic, which always sounds a little funny. The last sentence is where all the depth is; everything else is fluff.

  1. You’ve sparked an interesting train of thought here that could make a brilliant SF story – lack of gravity. Imagine a world where everything is floating freely. It would be necessary to rethink the way we describe everything equally as much as the way people behave. Newton’s Laws would go out of the window, and we’d have to invent a whole new concept of physics. It would also have effects on biology, as our balance system would need adaptation. And perhaps up and down would become irrelevant. So many possibilities.
    Yes, I can see a lot of fun in that idea, but I’m not sure if I’m ready yet to start writing SF myself. Maybe someone else might like to pick up the idea and run with it?
