The Sun tends to get all the attention, but it’s only seemingly the centre of your world.
Look. In this type of petunia, every flower is like a distant galaxy – each just as beautiful as the James Webb telescope photos. Right in the middle of the flower you see darkness – an alluring void. This is like a black hole with great pulling density. A massive object with such strong gravitational force that once something pops in, it never returns.
The force that organises spacetime is like hands sculpting galaxies: spiral, elliptical, lenticular, and irregular – punk ones! Galaxies and its matter compose and spin obediently. That’s there. Meanwhile, here on Earth, bees, bumblebees, flies, and ladybugs spin around Petunia cultivars flowers. The gravitation of the nectar still has little, light bodies to charm.
