40 Days, 40 Nights and a Rainbow Seems About Right

Noah’s Thanksoffering (c.1803) by Joseph Anton Koch. Noah builds an altar to the Lord after being delivered from the Flood; God sends the rainbow as a sign of his covenant (Genesis 8-9).

Given the amount of flooding going on in the US and Europe right now, I have a new respect for Noah and that ark. According to my slightly odd string theory of our world, the same strings that are triggering the massive vacuum condensing of water vapor in Europe are also responsible for the massive condensing and flooding and tornadoes in the Midwest and East coast of the US, we appear to be quantumly entangled if you know what I mean. I had to open the overflow valve on our swimming pool yesterday and let the excess run into the woods so it did not overflow into our house, it is a salt water pool so I hope the critters don’t mind a little salt.

Hey did you hear that lots of double rainbows were popping up all around the world in April in addition to those that popped up in Oklahoma and Kansas?  Well here is the article. Maybe lots of energetic strings breaking up in the jet streams?  I have it in my mind that these rainbows come in all different energy levels and they appear to decay over the period of a few hours and eventually dissappear, possibly releasing a bunch of subatomic particles. The vacuum condensing and eletromagnetic effect is greatest when they are first formed and dissipate fairly quickly.

I have had a great deal of strange thoughts lately popping out of the vacuum that are mixing science and religion, of which I am an expert of neither but have an entangled fascination for both.

Wikipedia has a good summary on rainbows in mythology and religion. I have placed a few below that strike a chord with me like vibrating a string so I thought I would share them:

The rainbow, a natural phenomenon noted for its beauty and inexplicability, has been a favorite component of mythology throughout history. The Norse saw it as BifrostJudeo-Christian traditions signs it as a covenant with God not to destroy the world by means of floodwater. Finding a mythology that does not include the rainbow somewhere may be the true challenge. Whatever the culture or continent, our species’ earliest rainbow is the rainbow of the imagination. Whether as bridgemessengerarcher’s bow, or serpent, the rainbow has been pressed into symbolic service for millennia. The myriad rainbow bridges and myths built by the world’s peoples clearly tell us more about human hopes and fears than they do about nature’s rainbow

Australian aboriginal mythology
The theme consistent with most Australian tribes is that the Rainbow Serpent is the creator of the world and all beings. During the dry season, the Rainbow Serpent retreats to deep waterholes. Another common theme among all aboriginal tribes is that the Rainbow Serpent has no gender. And while the Rainbow Serpent can give fertility by creating rain, it can also let loose blindness and disease. “The Aboriginal Rainbow is humanity, because it causes the ‘energy’ and the ‘breath’ that gives people life.”

Judeo–Christian mythologyAccording to Genesis, after Noah saved the animals from the Great Flood, a rainbow appeared. As the flood had killed all other living beings, the rainbow came to symbolize God’s promise that he would never send another flood to destroy all of the earth and that never again would all living things be killed in the waters of a flood. Medieval versions of the story of Noah’s Ark merge the celestial and earthly bows, and further turn the rainbow around to its existing arch. The existing rainbow is a weapon God turned towards himself as a symbol of His token of his covenant with the Earth

The rainbow as the heavenly archer’s bow also dominates ancient Hindu mythology. Indra, the Hindu god of thunder and war, uses the rainbow to shoot arrows of lightning – killing the Asura Vrta, a primordial demon-serpent.

Anyway, it appears there has been a fixation on rainbows for centuries, I appear to be just perpetuating those thoughts, only this time with a new wrinkle (in time).

Godspeed
