The next total lunar eclipse won’t be for about six months – January 31, 2018 – but there’s an on-going mysterious synchronicity regarding the moon.
Actually, we’re not sure whether this is just a strange coincidence or a synchronicity. I guess it depends how meaningful you find it. Whatever you call it, it’s both visual and mathematical. The visual part is that during a full eclipse, the moon fits perfectly over the sun. That’s because it is 400 times smaller than the sun and is also 1/400th distance between the earth and the sun.
Isaac Asimov regarded this odd alignment as “the most unlikely coincidence imaginable.” You can find out other ‘coincidental’ ratios and mysterious matters related to the moon in a book entitled: Who Built the Moon, by Christopher Knight and Alan Butler.
I first read about this concept that the moon is an artificial body moved into place by advanced beings to make earth a viable environment for intelligent life – or maybe any kind of life – in a novel called, The Bone Labyrinth, by James Rollins, a prolific novelist who combines investigations into unknown mysteries with action/adventure. No one went to the moon in the novel so that mystery remained unsolved.
