Go Get Earthed

Earth as a concept is full of meaning. As a word – it is even nice to say. It conjures both homeliness and vastness at the same time. It is both a place of existence and way of existence. Go Get Earthed! Is the title of this week’s Reel Time.

Terra also, is a multi-talented word. It has Latin roots. As a prefix (word starter), it means:

‘A rough upland or mountainous region of the moon or other solar system body
often having a high albedo relative to other surface features.’

Like WoW!!! Where has that word been all my life!

… Add that ‘space theme’ with the usual understanding of terra (such as terra nulla, terra firma, terracotta – ie. earthiness)… times it with an infinite imagination … subtract logical paradigms … and what have you got?

Spirems that have an access point between Quanta and Terra – without having to leave home – although there is that problem about having to leave their clothes behind…

For those who have read the book you will know what I mean … Hum. Well, I am, above all else, a practical person.
Terra also has another meaning:

‘to play hooky to complete an assignment that you procrastinated about and couldn’t finish.’
