An interesting model of our solar system’s path as it travels through space in the Milky Way.
Certainly a departure from usual models that show the Sun as a static object, which it certainly isn’t

Just spent the last 3 hours (which admittedly, I should’ve spent doing homework) researching the makeup of my history. And I just feel so emotionally drained.
All my life, I’ve taken pride in my Dominican identity. But, in all my years, I never knew what it really MEANT. It gave me comfort when I was being other-ed in high school for not being (insert race/ethnicity here). But it’s only been fairly recently that I’ve been finding out what comes with that identity. It’s only recently that I’ve found out what Colombus did to my people. It’s only recently that I’ve found out our complex relationship and (some of) our outright refusal to identify as Black, due to the implications that brings on us, but how fast we identify with Spanish, Russian(?), French(?), Indio (but god forbid we ACTUALLY identify with Indio), all so that we don’t have to say what we really are at out core. Our history with Santeria. The history of Trujillo, that monster of a man funded by the US Government. The lies I’ve been told that the Taino were extinct. Just, all the lies that I was told, and the truths I’ve been kept from. And the pain that comes with accepting it all.
From what I’ve been able to gather, most of the African slaves brought were from the Kongo area, or the Central-West parts of Africa. And the Native community were made of the Taino, descendants of the Arawak nation. And to be honest, I think that’s all I want to truly connect with. Now granted, I know I’ll have to do tons of more research to really figure out our lineage. Too bad I couldn’t have these epiphanies when my great-grandmother was still alive, I’m sure she could’ve told me so much. I’ll have to make do with my mom and grandma, who seem to be somewhat resistant to go into all of this.
The thing that makes this hard is the holding of identities. I’m just coming to terms with identifying as Black/Latino/Afro-Latino, and all the pain and trauma and liberation that brings. I want to own that. I also want to make sure that I don’t use a Taino identity (which I still have yet to 100% confirm for myself, but it just feels right) to avoid dealing with my Black Identity. And I’m certainly nowhere near accepting Spanish identity, considering the horrors that brings. I’m not sure that I ever will, but am I doing myself a disservice? Even if I don’t identify, am I running from my truth?
One thing is certain. I’m tired of not giving this any thought. I’m tired of saying Dominican, and not knowing what that REALLY means. I’m tired of hearing the record in my head how “bad” it is to link up spiritually with those that came before me. I definitely do think there is a lot of post-Christian guilt that I’m dealing with that prevents me from really asking myself and those around me the tough questions. But the thing is…I don’t feel like I belong. The Christian faith doesn’t fit me anymore. “Just” Dominican doesn’t fit me anymore. I need to find what feels right, and finding my past and the source of my identity feels right to me.
I am far away from fully committing to an Afro-Taino/Latino identity because I don’t fully know my history. But, I do know that my end result is to be able to proudly say I am a Dominican Gay Male, and that my Dominican identity is Taino AND African. That’s where I feel I’m headed, though if tonight’s any indication, it’s going to be a long, painful, but hopefully healing road.
Oh, and I found out that there is such thing as Two-Spirit within the Taino community, and they were welcomed. Makes me happy to know that I belong in more ways than one.
Amazing resonance experiment with salt
Using a vibrating metal plate connected to tone generator, Scientist Bruss Pup performs scientific magic by seemingly controlling and manipulating grains of salt to dance in specific patterns.
