Zoom Forward 13 Spiral Galaxy

If you do not “Zoom Forward” in your Spiritual Life and prepare for your departure from this Earth Life, then you have made a very grievous mistake. There is more to your Life than the people and things of this Earth Life…
***
Regardless of who you are; or who you think you are and likewise concerning what you have or what you think you have and you can place any name or anything in the equation: If you are not extremely careful; you will spend your entire life focused on the people and things surrounding you and they will absorb, deceive and trick you so much, you will miss out towards seeking the Lord.
***
Your life on earth is only a “limited amount of time”; then you pass away into the eternal state, into infinity, through the:  Gate of Eternity  for better or worse!!!
***
Be wise and seek the Lord while you have “time”.
***
You need to buy up, that is, make better use of the “time in your life” as to being rich toward God with whatever “time you have”; because there is a limited amount of the “time in your life” and you cannot buy/get it back, once it is gone!!!
*****
There will be a “time in your life” that your soul will be required of you; and you are powerless to stop it from leaving your earth body.

Luke 12: [13] And one of the company said unto him, Master, speak to my brother, that he divide the inheritance with me. [14] And he said unto him, Man, who made me a judge or a divider over you? [15] And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth. [16] And he spoke a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully: [17] And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits? [18] And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods. [19] And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry. [20] But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided? [21] So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.

The following are about the Universe. There is a life beyond Earth. As people upon this Earth; the great majority of humanity has been deceived by people and things; as if this is all of our existence. Perhaps this page will be helpful to someone; towards helping you to awaken to the reality of Life after this Earth Life…

As of December 2023, there are at least 200 articles I plan to add and probably many more, as they are created at NASA; to this website; well, maybe… I enjoyed viewing and reading the articles, so perhaps they will be of interest to anyone viewing this website.

Spiral Galaxy

NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope captures the face-on spiral galaxy, IC 5332.

This glittering image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope shows the spiral galaxy IC 5332. The galaxy lies about 30 million light-years away in the constellation Sculptor and has an almost face-on orientation to Earth. To understand the term ‘face-on,’ it is helpful to visualize a spiral galaxy as an extremely large disk. If the galaxy’s orientation makes it appear circular and disk-shaped from our perspective on Earth, then we say that it is ‘face-on.’ In contrast, if the galaxy’s orientation is such that it appears squashed and oval-shaped, then we say that it is ‘edge-on.’ The key thing is that the same galaxy would look extremely different from our perspective depending on whether it was face-on or edge-on as seen from Earth.

IC 5332 is an SABc-type galaxy in the De Vaucouleurs system of galaxy classification. The ‘S’ identifies it as a spiral galaxy, which it clearly is, given its well-defined arms of bright stars and darker dust that curl outwards from the galaxy’s dense and bright core. The ‘AB’ designation is a little more complex. It means that the galaxy is weakly barred, which refers to the shape of the galaxy’s center. The majority of spiral galaxies do not spiral out from a single point, but rather from an elongated bar-type structure. SAB galaxies – which are also known as intermediate spiral galaxies – do not have a clear bar-shape at their core, but also do not spiral out from a single point, instead falling somewhere in between. The lowercase ‘c’ describes how tightly wound the spiral arms are: ‘a’ would indicate very tightly wound, and ‘d’ very loosely wound. Thus, IC 5332 is an intermediate spiral galaxy on many fronts: weakly barred, with quite loosely wound arms, and almost completely face-on!
