It is the closest one we have, but there are many, many more (almost countless) out there.

The sun’s closest stellar neighbors are three stars in the Alpha Centauri system. The two main stars are Alpha Centauri A and Alpha Centauri B, which form a binary pair. They are an average of 4.3 light-years from Earth. The third star is Proxima Centauri. It is about 4.22 light-years from Earth and is the closest star other than the sun. Ref.

More Words

October 21st, 2018 Comments off

Somliga saker kan vi bestämma över, andra inte.

Vi bestämmer över våra åsikter och vår inställning, vårt begär och vår motvilja – med andra ord allt sådant som vi gör själva.

Men kroppen bestämmer vi inte över, inte våra ägodelear heller, vårt anseende och vår ställning – kort sagt sådant som vi inte gör själva.

Det vi bestämmer över är till sin natur fritt, okuvat, obundet, medan det vi inte bestämmer över är svagt, fängslat och hämmat.

Det är inte vårt.
