Making Sense of It

7 Coming Order
3 - Accidents
Motion is a universal feature. Even when it escapes our perception, motion occurs in one way or another. Atoms of a steel bar invisibly quiver in their lattice homes. Gas molecules race chaotically about. Continents imperceptibly drift apart. Galaxies spiral at astounding velocities.
Motion is life. Seeds and pollen fly in the wind. Sap flows within branches. Blood pumps within veins. Impulses travel along nerves. Organisms crawl, swim, run, climb, jump, fly, in endless ways. Motion is so ubiquitous, and in some places structures are so many, that accidental collisions are unavoidable.
When great masses of Eternons simply follow their unguided course, their encounter with further masses often generates the catastrophes that pound heaven and earth with devastating consequences. Storms, floods, eruptions, and all the great convulsions of nature can be imputed to random movements and contacts of immense assemblages of Eternons
Colliding, though, is not the privilege of large groups of Eternons. Individual particles traveling at enormous speed keep smashing into larger structures. Some radiation penetrates molecules or genes and, like a bowling ball into the pins, sends their pieces flying into disorder. This is often the origin of unfavorable mutations and severe diseases.
Unfortunate collisions happen as well between the many moving parts and flowing substances that are found within every organism. For instance when rushing blood cells strike and dislodge a fatty deposit, they may cause a stroke.
Finally, the motion of entire structures, including ourselves and the machines we build, often ends in violent encounters. Hence, the countless forms of accidents we witness.
All these distressing events are not acts of hostility. They do not carry a message. They do not punish wrongdoing. They are fortuitous consequences of the way Eternon structures are made and evolve. They are the price to pay for a universe that is alive. For to be without collisions, this universe would have to be without motion, frozen and dead.HOW TO VISIT
