The Galactic Atom: Globular Clusters
While the model of the atom as a solar system is said to be dismissed, and the ether as well, the universe continues to function by these mechanics. As the manifestation of infinity, the particles of which we are composed are arbitrary. In an infinite array, an observer can be composed of any particle. Well, range of particles.
These particles, then, determine many things. How other particles are seen, for instance.
Regardless of which range of particles an observer within the infinite array of particles views as their own constituents, they will fundamentally see them as "atoms." In their eyes, no matter which particle we would see, they see atoms.
And they look to the particle upon which they reside as their planet. And the particle that their planet orbits as their sun. And the particle that their sun orbits in their galaxy as a black hole.
This observer-dependent structure of infinity, indeed, means that a solar system is an atom.
The nuances of how that is so remains a mystery, and the concept has been altogether abandoned by any "respectable" pursuit of knowledge. "We already figured out that was not the case."
As discussed in The Kybalion, "As above, so below. As below, so above." The Principle of Correspondence by which the universe functions is such that a solar system is an atom. And a galaxy is an atom.
But, if a galaxy is an atom on some octave of reality, then what does that make globular clusters?
A globular cluster is a cluster of stars, globular in shape (surprise!), common in galaxies.
With these clues about globular clusters, in the galactic atom we can consider what this might tell us.
Immediately anomalous is the quantity of globular clusters found in the Milky Way. While some galaxies contain thousands of globular clusters, our Milky Way contains a number in the range of 150-200.
If we, then, consider the possibility that a globular cluster is an electron in a galactic atom, then this quantity would "make sense." While some galactic atoms would have such vast quantities that they seem beyond reason, that the galaxy in which we ourselves as observers live and are thus most tuned to it is possible that these objects are still electrons and there are further unrecognized subtleties.
Interestingly, this matches the observations that we see.
Namely, electrons are highly stable. If a globular cluster is an electron of a galactic atom then it would be detectably older in age than the other regions of the galaxy.
It is worth pausing to talk about electrons. What makes a particle an electron? It is that in the system in which the particle is being analyzed it operates as an electron.
And how does an electron operate? It is a particle that radiates energy with an outward pressure and is radiated on by the environment with an inward pressure, wherein the environmental flow overwhelms the outward flow so that there is only inward flow from all directions into the system with no outward flow. Outward flow occurs in bursts when the energy flow inward is converted to less subtle (compared to yet-detected ether) mass that breaks free from the inside of the electron where it is born and is ejected as a photon. And then the particle continues to absorb an inward flow of energy as it cyclically takes in subtle ethereal particles and converts them to a photon that is released.
For a globular cluster, then, it is fed into existence by a vortex of energy that emanates from the galactic center and flows into the region continuously. This energetic flow feeds the globular cluster's stars so that they do not run out of fuel and decay to more subtle particles. Rather, they are able to be refueled to the point where they have substantial variation in their age.
Stars do not just simply have inherent characteristics. Their environment determines their longevity just as much as their own traits. A star losing large quantities of energy is only doing so because it is in an environment which is low in energy that is not feeding the star greater quantities of energy. But in a globular cluster, the environment appears to maintain the stars' stability. This supports the concept that the globular cluster is fed into existence by a subtle flow of ethereal energy.
Moreover, if there is such a source of energy to these particular locations to maintain their longevity in the history of the galaxy, it points to them being a form of x-ray vision into any system.
Globular clusters can exist in globular clusters of globular clusters, such as Messier-87:
Is this, then, another octave up, perhaps an electron for the Great Attractor?
