The Sun: A Glowing Orb of Fire

The Sun... is there really more to the sun than truly meets the eye?...
Are there mysterious energies at work with the sun that we don't even know about? Are there more ways in which the sun contributes to life here on Earth than we're aware of?
It's one gigantic majestic wonder... A glowing gem of light with blazing streams of sunbeams. A powerful pyre... A star of sparks... A fiery golden giant... A... uh, ok.. I think you get the point...

We live on a little watery rock that travels around a huge ball of fire. A huge ball of fire that we call, the Sun. It is an essential component to life. We exist because of it, so in a way... we are a part of it. More than a part of it actually... we're related to it. Connected to it. It is our celestial ancestor that is still alive today and will outlive us by a long shot. Virtually every single human that has ever lived on this planet has seen the sun. It remains as a constant along with the Moon and star constellations that creates a common thread with us humans.

The sun's relationship with Earth is a very connected and intriguing one. The sun can be seen as masculine (yang) while the Earth is feminine (yin) The sun radiates energy to the Earth and in turn, the Earth produces life and gives birth to countless amounts of different types of organisms. In a way, sunlight in a sense acts as (bear with me here) semen, that penetrates the Earth and makes the planet fertile. The sun also helps provide Vitamin D for our bodies which helps to absorb calcium and keep our bodies strong and healthy. What else does Vitamin D help with you might ask? You guessed it... sperm quality. Coincidence?... yeah, probably... but interesting nonetheless.

The spectrum of vitamin D target organs has expanded and the reproductive role of vitamin D is highlighted by expression of the vitamin D receptor (VDR) and enzymes that metabolize vitamin D in testis, male reproductive tract and human spermatozoa.

I think the sun is quite complex and multi-faceted with many hidden mysteries behind it. If there are any sun experts out there, I would love to hear from you, and hopefully you can shed some "light" on the matter. Hopefully there are some "bright" minds out there, ya know... But don't get too excited, I don't want anyone to have any asthma "flare"-ups... Boy, I sure could go for an ice cold glass of "Corona" right about now... Hey, ya know.. I was thinking... what was it that Joey Batts told Tommy to go home and get in that movie Goodfellas?... I believe it was his "shine" box. OK. I'm done. I had to get it out of my system. Hmm, does that work at all?... "system" like solar system kind of?.. Oh wait, I thought I already said I was done.. Ok, now I'm done.

Nice thread, S&F.

Yes, we are children of the sun, it is where we came from.

“The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of starstuff.”

- Carl Sagan

The mountains and the canyons started to tremble and shake, as the children of the sun began to awake.

- Robert Plant

We are a way for the cosmos to know itself.

- Carl Sagan

My belief is that the Sun is exothermic. This would make the Sun a giant zero - point (vacuum) engine. l believe that our home star is hollow and dark on the inside. Here's why I say that: sunspots. How can something that is internally powered, ever have a dark region? If you put a lit light bulb inside of a box, close it, then poke a hole, what would come out? Light right? So how can the Sun not be hollow? It draws energy from the sea of particles that surrounds it.

Akhenaten 18th dynasty

Akhenaten's .... "Hymn to the Sun" (Aten)

You appear beautifully on the horizon of heaven,
You living Aten, the beginning of life!
When you have risen on the eastern horizon,
You have filled every land with your beauty.
you are gracious, great, glistening, and high over every land;
Your rays encompass the lands to the limit of all that you have made:
As you are Re, you reach to the end of them;
(you) subdue them (for) your beloved son.
though you are far away, your rays are on earth;
though you are in their faces, no one knows your going.

When you set in the western horizon,
The land is in darkness, in the manner of death.
They sleep in a room, with heads wrapped up,
Nor sees one eye the other.
All their goods which are under their heads might be stolen,
(But) they would not perceive (it).
Every lion has come forth from his den;
All creeping things, they sting.
Darkness is a shroud, and the earth is in stillness,
For he who made them rests in his horizon.

At daybreak, when you arise on the horizon,
When you shine as the Aten by day,
you drive away the darkness and give your rays.
The Two Lands are in festivity every day,
Awake and standing upon (their) feet,
For you have raised them up.
Washing their bodies, taking (their) clothing,
Their arms are (raised) in praise at your appearance.
All the world, they do their work.

All beasts are content with their pasturage;
Trees and plants are flourishing.
The birds which fly from their nests,
Their wings are (stretched out) in praise to your ka.
All beasts spring upon (their) feet.
Whatever flies and alights,
They live when you have risen (for) them.
The ships are sailing north and south as well,
For every way is open at your appearance.
The fish in the river dart before your face;
Thy rays are in the midst of the great green sea.

Creator of seed in women,
you who make fluid into man,
Who maintain the son in the womb of his mother,
Who sooth him with that which stills his weeping,
you nurse (even) in the womb,
Who give breath to sustain all that he has made!
When he descends from the womb to breathe
On the day when he is born,
you open his mouth completely,
you supply his necessities.
When the chicken in the egg speaks within the shell,
you give him breath within it to maintain him.
When you have made him his fulfillment within the egg, to break it,
He comes forth from the egg to speak at his completed (time);
He walks upon his legs when he comes forth from it.

How manifold it is, what you have made!
They are hidden from the face (of man).
O sole god, like whom there is no other!
you did create the world according to your desire,
Whilst you were alone: All men, cattle, and wild beasts,
Whatever is on earth, going upon (its) feet,
And what is on high, flying with its wings.

The countries of Syria and Nubia, the land of Egypt,
you set every man in his place,
you supply their necessities:
Everyone has his food, and his time of life is reckoned.
Their tongues are separate in speech,
And their natures as well;
Their skins are distinguished,
As you distinguish the foreign peoples.
you make a Nile in the underworld,
you bring forth as you desire
To maintain the people (of Egypt)
According as you made them for yourself,
The lord of all of them, wearying (himself) with them,
The lord of every land, rising for them,
The Aten of the day, great of majesty.

All distant foreign countries, you make their life (also),
For you have set a Nile in heaven,
That it may descend for them and make waves upon the mountains,
Like the great green sea,
To water their fields in their towns.
How effective they are, your plans, O lord of eternity!
The Nile in heaven, it is for the foreign peoples
And for the beasts of every desert that go upon (their) feet;
(While the true) Nile comes from the underworld for Egypt.

Your rays suckle every meadow.
When you rise, they live, they grow for you.
you make the seasons in order to rear all that you have made,
The winter to cool them,
And the heat that they may taste you.
you have made the distant sky in order to rise therein,
In order to see all that you make.
While you were alone,
Rising in your form as the living Aten,
Appearing, shining, withdrawing or approaching,
you made millions of forms of yourself alone.
Cities, towns, fields, road, and river --
Every eye beholds you over against them,
For you are the Aten of the day over the earth....

You are in my heart,
And there is no other that knows youy
Save your son Nefer-kheperu-Re Wa-en-Re,
For you have made him well-versed in your plans and in your strength.

The world came into being by your hand,
According as you have made them.
When you have risen they live,
When you set they die.
you are lifetime your own self,
For one lives (only) through you.
Eyes are (fixed) on beauty until you set.
All work is laid aside when you set in the west.
(But) when (you) rise (again),
[Everything is] made to flourish for the king,...
Since you found the earth
And raise them up for your son,
Who came forth from your body: the King of Upper and Lower Egypt, ... Akhenaten, ... and the Chief Wife of the King ... Nefertiti, living and youthful forever and ever

If the sun was blocked out by a dark cloud like it was a giant hand, or wing, many would think Satan or Anzu was upon them.

a reply to: Nurelic

I think one of the main misconceptions is that the sun is a ball of fire. It's more like a ball of electric plasma -
