More than a million years ago, our moon spun on its axis much faster than it now does. Our spinning moon, slowed due to Earth’s gravitational pull, is one half of a symbiotic relationship. Earth’s ocean tides are the result of lunar gravitational pull. These forces together allow Earthlings to see only one side of the moon, a phenomenon known as tidal locking.
Just because we cannot see something, does not mean it doesn’t exist.
The far side of the moon is only visible from outer space. Perspective is everything—the long view of an object, a peculiarity, or an experience eventually reveals its potency, affects, and consequences.

Truth now appears to be a fluid entity.
We humans intuit understandings, presume, jump to conclusions, and demand to know the yet unknowable. We live in the flux of truth more and more in our American world, fueled by group loyalty—and by the sense that we can change the world for the better with our version of truth.
