The Ouroboros of GTSM by Daniel Archer

Picture by Daniel Archer.

I didn't know what an ouroboros was, but apparently it is a symbol for eternity. It is a dragon eating its own tail. Stars "eat" dead ones. Pretty cool stuff. You learn something new every day. Though, for some reason I remember seeing that symbol in middle school when I was about 12-13 years old.

The first known Ouroboros was in the Enigmatic Book of the Netherworld, the ancient Egyptian funerary text of King Tutankhamun. Pretty old stuff, about 14th century B.C., at least in human terms.

The text concerns the actions of the god Ra and his union with Osiris in the underworld. In an illustration from this text, two serpents, holding their tails in their mouths, coil around the head, neck, and feet of an enormous god, who may represent the unified Ra-Osiris. Both serpents are manifestations of the deity Mehen, who in other funerary texts protects Ra in his underworld journey. The whole divine figure represents the beginning and the end of time.

Ordering Stars by their Ages in the Solar System by Daniel Archer

Below is a new pic by Daniel Archer showing the order of the stars in our system by their ages. Youngest on the left, oldest and dead stars to the right. It should help people to understand better that we live in a polymorphic star system. As well, it should be apparent that with all the gas giant objects found by Kepler and other various telescopes, there are probably dozens more rocky objects in the vicinity as well. The universe is extremely crowded with possibility.

Experts are not Always the Prepared Minds

To be an expert is sometimes an illusion. In fact, becoming an expert sometimes can be the worst possible thing you could do in your scientific career.

How to Recycle Old and Dead Stars according to Stellar Metamorphosis, New Paper

Methods for destroying dead stars are shown. Some methods leave rings and disks, some asteroids, some meteorites, some giant interstellar dust clouds. This is all based on the discovery outlined via stellar metamorphosis. All stars evolve into what scientists call "planet/exoplanet". This means planets are ancient stars, and nature destroys and recycles them.
