Equinox yet again

September 22, 2013 -- Another special day as we bobble along, nested fields within nested fields, here in the variable mass density and solar fusion flux.

"The Earth moves in two different ways. First, the planet spins on its polar axis — a line through the north and south poles — once every 24 hours, causing the alternation of day and night. Secondly, it moves in its orbit around the sun once every 365.25 days, causing the annual cycle of seasons. The equinox occurs when these two motions intersect. "

This account summarizes a few of the formative changes and oscillations that we humans often confuse with or try to label as "time". The daily rotation alternates light and dark, at some point prompting for photosynthesis and respiration. The cycle of the seasons adds other variations in temperature and weathering patterns, inducing seeds-to-fruits and harvest transformations.

The changes are real enough as well as the counts of rotations and orbits between various intersections. And yet, were we to have or develop a deeper descriptive account, not just of spinning slanted well-lit tops, but inwardly, of nested fields flexing gently, rhythmically within other nested fields, to also give the same classical periodically balanced impressions, yes, the changing nested fields within nested fields exist, but, time as a dimension?
