A Close Up Look At The Test of Time

The photo looks like a pile of pomegranate seeds, with some salt grains between them.

It is actually a close up of our Sun, the nearest star to us.

The white line at the bottom left of the photo represents a distance of 5,000 km (3,107 miles).

Imagine that image being turned into a wave much larger than the earth during solar disturbances, as was reported in a post about waves on the Sun.

I suppose it could be called a mystery as to why the Sun will one day destroy Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars when it goes through its expansion phase.

That is what scientists teach us, causing some of us to wonder why did the cosmos evolve like this?

Why do scientists have to be "doomers", telling us our beautiful home world will be destroyed by the very Star that is giving us life sustaining energy and light?

These questions need not cause us to go into denial, but instead we could get busy with adapting to the requirements which the tenets of ecocosmology set forth.
