Many Planets Flying Through Interstellar Space—Look For Others On This Path Through Existence

The galaxy may be filled with planets that are not orbiting any sun.

From NASA

“Astronomers… have discovered a new class of Jupiter-sized planets floating alone in the dark of space, away from the light of a star. The team believes these lone worlds were probably ejected from developing planetary systems. The discovery indicates there are many more free-floating Jupiter-mass planets that can’t be seen. The team estimates there are about twice as many of them as stars. In addition, these worlds are thought to be at least as common as planets that orbit stars. This would add up to hundreds of billions of lone planets in our Milky Way galaxy alone….it is likely that some planets are ejected from their early, turbulent solar systems, due to close gravitational encounters with other planets or stars.”

I can relate to these interstellar planets. I’m certain many people can relate to these planets.

While you may be in a secure orbit in many aspects of your life, it still can be difficult to find a place in existence.

Close encounters with bad people and selfish people can send us out on an uncharted trajectory.

The general tone of our society can make you want to detach yourself from what is taking place.

The good news is that even when flying around on your own, you are in the company of many other such planets.

You are still part of the galaxy as a whole.

In your life, look for those on a similar flight path through existence.

Remain loyal to the things you value and to the best aspects of our society , while seeking out others like yourself who may orbit no specific star.
