Aurora Borealis

excerpt from

“The Overview Affect(ion)”
for Space VR


The rapid rotation of Earth’s nickel-iron core
creates a powerful magnetic field that protects
the planet from the blast of solar wind. 

This stream of energy excites the oxygen,
nitrogen and other atmospheric elements
to create static bands and dancing ribbons
of charged particles and light: The Aurora Borealis.

[The mystery of this numinous aurora
makes one wonder:
what are the other dimensions we don’t yet see?] 

With our pulse,
the human heart also emits a magnetic field.
When we feel love, this field measurably expands.
