...did you know the word planet means wanderer?
AND, you completely misunderstood its meaning and entomology.
The "wanderer" moniker came about from observing the movements of the planets (to the ancients, they looked to be just "any other" star...just a
bright point of light in the night sky).
From the point of view of Earth, against the backdrop of stars.....due to retrograde motion (the nature of the fact we exist in an
heliocentric system) planets can appear to move in OPPOSITE direction of travel, periodically, and for brief intervals of time. Days, weeks,
THUS.... they "wandered" against the backdrop of the VERY more distant stars. Anyone with even basic education in astronomy should have learned
this, by now???
I am so dismayed, as I said earlier, at this thread....and the ignorance displayed, by so, so many. It is tragically reprehensible......that current
education standards seem to be failing us more and more.....

Planet=Greek πλανήτης αστήρ [planetes aster
] = wandering star
first thing they teach you when the subject comes up
a star like object moving/wandering across the sky
not a big ball/mass of rock, gas-giants, dwarf-stars or whatever [the way we think of planets]
star-like objects, pinpoints of light. wandering through the sky [the way they saw it]
how did i misunderstand the words meaning or it's etymology
my dear fellow perhaps you are under the impression that because i post mostly on the esoteric side of things that i'm some sort of newager
crystal-botherer, your typical Mystagocicus Americanus
no. for the record i'm an old college dropout who majored in mathematics, who is currently more interested in the hidden side of the world.
my first love was astronomy; i've known the meaning of planet since 3rd grade and not through school but from my own reading as i am a
this thread is speculating that google and nasa are hiding something
i was responding to a fellow poster and pointing out another possibility of what it is that a whole lot of people claim is approaching from space and
also about the winged planet. what? you think they'd park marduk/nibiru behind the moon, and show the whole disk? hell no, they saw/described a star
like object[planet] with wings.
Mini-Magnetospheric Plasma Propulsion (M2P2) is an advanced plasma propulsion system that will enable spacecraft to attain unprecedented speeds,
with minimal energy and mass requirements. It will create a large scale magnetic bubble around the spacecraft to ride the solar winds, and accelerate
the spacecraft to unprecedented speeds.
also a world-ship wouldn't exert as much gravitational influence, but what about magnetospheric/electromagnetic effects from the "wings" could be
and i get this

well my education standards were those of the NYC public school system of the 70's & 80's
and a remember being taught civics and going to art and gym class. for what that's worth
i'll admit a lot of people have seemingly mismashed it all together as if this thread were some sort of alchemical alembic attempting to distill from
a synchretism of ignorance, the Logosophic Gold of Sophia[Knowledge] just throwing my contribution here.
[just imagine what would have happened if i'd brought up reports of giant space-dragons approaching from outer-space in order to aid their little
brothers/sisters on earth the Sylphs, who have been recently decimated by increased chemtrailing and HAARp attacks?]
