Seeking Balance

Knowing where the center of the Earth is. It is a requirement for modern navigation systems. Without about seven minutes of “alignment” each morning the seemingly magic systems that provide position and attitude guidance to airplanes can’t even function.

After each flight a “quick alignment” is necessary to cancell out any accumulated errors. This takes about 30 seconds.

It is terribly important that we, as people, know where the center of the Earth is. Without quiet introspection it is difficult if not impossible for us to really tell what is screwed up and what isn’t. 

About seven minutes is all it takes. And during the day a few thirty second “quick alignments” really seem to make it easier to maintain focus.

You know, not choke the living shit out of somebody that really needs it.
